What is Coccydynia?

Coccydynia is a pain of the tail bone area, which is the highlighted area in the picture below.  The tail bone can sharp, dull, burning that may radiates to the glutes.  Usually, this type of pain is due to the direct pressure on the tail bone when sitting.  Therefore, this pain could be so disabling that one cannot sit for a short period time, which is a very common function of a day-to-day living.
