I have tight hips, and I cannot sit cross-legged. So I have started doing some hip flexibility exercises where I hold a pose for 30 to 45 seconds, and I try to push past my limits but later on, I feel pain in my tailbone. Is this pain normal?
I understand your concern. I suspect that your pelvic floor muscles are weak. If you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, you should start getting some relief from the pain you are now having near the tailbone. First, you must tighten the urinary passage, hold it for five seconds, and relax. The next exercise is tightening the anus. Hold it for five seconds, and relax. Revert if you do not get relief.
I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
