Good day,
My boyfriend suffers for coccydynia. Do you have any advise on how to easy his pain.

Sitting on a "ring cushion" may alleviate the pain. Question is - how long has this persisted and how did it possibly occur ? A fall on the buttocks, or a repititive sprain injury - often caused by cycling or rowing. Physiotherapists and chiropractors do apply different techniques and modalities in the treatment of such cases - thus I would advise a visit to one of these for further evaluation.
