Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

After a fall slammed my tailbone into the cement floor. I cannot walk having much trouble walking. Can a chiropractor help, correct and fix this?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all, an X-ray is a must. As the impact was on the cement floor, there might be a possibility of bone injury. Post-X-ray, we can say the possible next treatment plan. Usually rest for the initial time and using a piles pillow will allow less compression over the injured area. Post which the exercise to strengthen the hip muscles is advised to regain the muscle strength. Please take an X-ray and share the report. X-ray to be taken is PA pelvic bones or PA coccyx.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
