I have heard many complaints of falling ‘right on my tailbone’ and persistent pain following. Is it significant? The best comparison that I have heard related to the function of a tailbone is likened to the tip of a ‘spinning top’.
If the bottom of the top contributes to proportionate centrifugal force (the torso coiling around the pelvis) then what happens when the tip is ‘bent’. This concept is difficult to research but important to consider. Sacroiliac pain? Persistent instability in the lumbar and sacroiliac region? Any history of falling on your tailbone? Well, just another thing to consider.
