Nurse who suffers chronic tailbone pain

I am a Registered Nurse who has suffered with tailbone pain for over 8 years. Like all chronic pain, it is essential that sufferers get the correct support, diagnosis and treatment appropriate for them as an individual. This blog follows my journey with chronic pain, it expresses my personal opinions and thoughts. It is not intended as a replacement for advice or treatment from your normal Healthcare Provider.

Cautiously optimistic

Well, three days on from Fridays physio session, and things are still not too bad. That was physio session number 9. Could it actually be working?! I know other people who have found it helped them, but after exausting so many other options I did not hold out much hope.

I know it's early days and I don't want to jinx things, so don't want to be too optimistic yet. I will just have to take each day as it comes. Session number 10 this Friday. 

Back to work tomorrow after six weeks off, so this improvement could not come at a better time for me!

My husband is also helping with the deep tissue massage, and pressure point work every couple of days: he's a natural, so I'm very lucky. I'm also continuing with my pelvic floor relaxation exercises, and also pelvic floor strengthening exercises.

If it works, I have the boxer Audley Harrison to thank, who suggested this treatment to me. Strange, but true!!
