Reduce swelling, incorporate breathing, tuck & arch
I am often asked questions on pain management and treatment…
What is the best stretch for a sore tailbone?
This is not clinical advice, but things some have tried with success:
- Reduce swelling with ice–lying on your back with a soft gel pack under your tailbone, gently “tuck your tail” down and then arch your back to create motion.
- Add breathing to it, breathing in as you arch and out as you tuck. Then firmly pull your belly in as you tuck, relaxing as you arch.
- Then try same, but move gently side to side, pressing the tailbone into the gel pack.
