I agree with Rohrer101. When I was in school I fell very hard on my tailbone going down some steps. I always thought I fractured it. It was extremely painful to sit for any length of time. I finally went and bought one of those blow up donuts with a whole in the middle and sat on that most of the time. That seemed to help and let my (bum) heal and inflammational subside. Then, when I was pregnant, our son was so anxious to greet the world, he came so fast and furious that he broke my tailbone on the way out the doctor heard it snap he said. THAT was more painful than the labor or delivery and again I could not sit for quite some time without the donut. So, I, too, have had tailbone issues that were completely different from my scoliosis.
