*INTENSE TAILBONE PAIN* Relief with Gonstead Technique


(upbeat easy guitar music) – When you feel the pain, where do you feel it right now? You feel it down here and into the legs, but can you show me now, because now I’m just looking at your back. – Right here. – It’s all the way down there. So right here, that’s painful? – I have pain here. – [Doctor] Okay. – Right here. – [Doctor] Both sides? Both sides? – Yeah. – [Doctor] Okay.
– And here and here. Right now, I can’t do. – [Doctor] Okay. Any pain? – Little. – [Doctor] A little bit?
– Yeah. – Where is the pain when you do that? – Here. – Got it. You see how, like, how asymmetrical it is? Her pants are going like this, too, right? – When she come sit down, (speaking with heavy accent) sit down, going down. (grunts) Wake up, again. When you go to the bed, you go to the bed like this. – Every day? – Now, getting more– – I feel more better now. – It’s like, pain, I don’t know. – When I sit, I sit
over here, or over here. – Okay. So you’re trying
to avoid your tailbone. – Yeah. You’re so tilted in your pelvis, and your tailbone is shifting
off to the outside, right? So when you sit onto it, you’re sitting actually at
an angle on your tailbone. Yeah, got something right there, too. You feel it? Right there. Yeah, okay. Another one a little lower right there. So I get there, that’s painful right? – Mm-hmm. This is your, where your joint is, okay, your tailbone, okay? This is where your coccyx, it’s called a coccyx, meets your sacrum. Basically if I poke this side pretty hard, that’s not too bad, right? But if I go a little bit here, that hurts, right? – Mm-hmm.
– Yeah. It means it sprains out
onto that side, okay? So that’s why when I push on this side, it doesn’t really hurt, but if I push on that
side, it hurts, right? So what we’re gonna do
is actually close that. I’m gonna actually address
your tailbone today. So is that painful right there? – Mm-hmm.
– Yeah. – You sometimes get headaches, right? Right here? – Okay, so what we’re gonna do is actually adjust your
atlas over here, okay? So this is your very top bone, okay. Because you said it comes down into your
arms sometimes, right? And it’s really hard for you
to raise your arms, right? And so this nerve goes into, you said it actually goes
into your fingers, too, right? – Yeah, mm-hmm. – Which fingers do you feel- – This one. – Okay, mostly this one? – Mm-hmm. – And it’s when you move
your neck this way, right? And then sometimes it hurts your nerves all the way to your finger right? – Yeah.
– Yeah. So that’s what I’m saying is, we’re gonna adjust up here, so most of the rotation in your neck actually happens from up here. So if I fix that, it can help a lot with what she’s feeling going to the arm. Just watch. Do you feel that every day, the finger? – Yes, every day. – Every day, okay. So you let me know, do you feel it right now? – I feel right now. – Okay. So let’s adjust up here, okay? So, you ready? Okay, sounds good. – [Man] I can hold her. (both laugh) I’ll be quick. So I’m gonna be adjusting
this top one, okay? So I’ll show you really quick because I’m gonna be
pushing that over, okay? Chin up a little bit while
I’m (speaking softly) (neck cracks)
Good. Not too bad, right? – No. (laughs) – Good. How often do you get the
headaches, really quick? – For one year, almost every day. – Every day for a year? Okay, yeah, that’s not good. So that is definitely
gonna help you with that. What we’re gonna do, okay, so it’s sprained out over here, okay? So that’s where the swelling is. So what we’re gonna do
is actually adjust it and close it, okay? Actually it’s really swollen here, so I’m gonna basically just
get some of the swelling out. Okay. Breathe in. Okay. Good. Just relax. (bench pops) Good. That adjusted nice. That better? – Mm-hmm. – How’s the tailbone feeling? – Yeah, it feels– – Yeah, bend down. – Yeah. – Ready for Zumba? (woman laughs) – So your tailbone’s right here, right? It’s curved over to this side. So what I did was put my finger there and actually just twisted that around to actually close it. Feel better?
– Uh-huh – Yeah. – Thank you. – Tailbones should not get adjusted every single time that you come in. Let me know how that does the next time when you do come in, okay? (easy band music)

Aylio Coccyx Seat Cushion for Back Pain Relief Review – Ask Doctor Jo

Aylio Coccyx Seat Cushion for Back Pain Relief Review – Ask Doctor Jo


Hey everybody, it’s Doctor Jo. Today I’m gonna
talk about the Aylio Coccyx Orthopedic Comfort Foam Seat Cushion. Right off the bat, I really
like this cushion because the cover is nice and soft. It also comes out. There’s a zipper
so if you need to wash it, if it get’s dirty, you can and you don’t risk messing up the
foam on the inside. It’s got a little cutout here for your tailbone, or your coccyx, to
take the pressure off of it when you’re sitting. And then it has some groves here to keep your
hips in alignment when you’re sitting. And it also helps distribute your weight on both
sides. So if you sit for a long time and you have pain and numbness when you’re sitting,
this will help distribute that and hopefully take away some of that pain and numbness.
Also if you have some back pain, if you’ve been diagnosed with stenosis, or spondylolisthesis,
spondylosis, this will help because it helps put you in that proper alignment and take
some pressure off areas. So let’s try it out. So when you put the cushion in the seat, make
sure the cutout is in the back where your tailbone is. And make sure it’s in the center
of the seat so you can have that level seating. The first thing that I notice when I sit on
it is it actually puts me in an upright position which is very good. So if you slouch a little
bit, it feels weird so you want to sit up. You can see here where the hole is, it gives
you space so you’re not putting pressure on that tailbone if you have an injury there
or if you have a pressure sore, you’re not putting all that pressure on the spot to make
it worse. It’s pretty comfortable so you can sit on it for a while. And the foam, I’ve
noticed after sitting on it for a little bit, doesn’t actually squish down. It stays in
its form so you don’t end up sinking to the bottom. One thing I would recommend since
it is thick, if you’re putting it in a chair at work, make sure you get that proper alignment
where you knees are about at 90 degrees and your hip are at about 90 degrees. So then
you’re not up like this, or down like that. You’re in that 90/90 degree position. So overall,
I do feel like it’s very comfortable, it’s getting you in a good position, it’s taking
pressure off the spots that it needs to. And it’s pretty soft, so if you want to check
it out, it’s gonna be in the Ask Doctor Jo product store, or Amazon.com. And if you have
any questions, leave them in the comments section, if you’d like to check out some other
videos go to AskDoctorJo.com and don’t forget to follow me on Facebook and Twitter. Remember,
be safe, have fun, and I hope you feel better soon.

Tailbone (Coccyx) Pain Relief – Ask Doctor Jo

Tailbone (Coccyx) Pain Relief – Ask Doctor Jo


hey everybody it’s Doctor Jo and sad unicorn
Kali. she’s sad cuz her tailbone hurts. so I’m gonna show you my top seven ways
to relieve tailbone pain, in humans. so let’s get started. so for the tailbone
or the coccyx, you really want to get that area moving. the pelvis in general,
but kind of down to the bottom of the spine because that’s where that coccyx
is. so the first one that you’re gonna do is kind of get over into all fours. you
want to spread your knees out about shoulder width apart, but you’re gonna
bring your feet in some. you don’t have to make them touch, but you just
want to bring them a little closer in than your knees. you’re gonna kind of
lean back almost like you’re going to sit down on your feet, but not go all the
way down. and once you kind of get to a stretch there, you’re just going to kind
of shift back and forth or we sometimes call it wagging the tail. so this is just
gonna help get that tailbone area loosened up a little bit. so you can just
go continuously back and forth like I’m doing, or you can kind of sit over to one
side and do maybe like a 5 to 10 second stretch, and then come back up, and then
shift over. so you should really feel that stretch down in that pelvis area
and that coccyx area down in there. so then after that, you’re gonna come back
up onto all fours and do a cat dog. some people call it cat cow. whatever you want
to call it, I like the cat dogs. so the cat, you’re going to come up arching up
your back and tucking in your chin. so you’re gonna come up like this. just like
when a cat stretch is really trying to stretch everything there, and then you’re
gonna drop down into that dog, or that cow, and bring your head up and really
try and drop your hips down. almost like you’re making a saddle with your back.
and so that should really again really help get that area loosened up back
there. you can do a 5 to 10 second hold. if you want to go longer, like a 30
second hold, you can do that as well. but just alternating back and forth. so when
you arch your back tucking in the chin holding that and then when you drop it
down bring your head up and look forward.
really get that stretch in there. so you can go back and forth maybe five
times. if you’re doing a longer stretch like thirty seconds, then you can just do
three times each way. so then you’re gonna go into a full child’s pose which
is kind of what we started off in the beginning. but now you’re gonna go all
the way down. some people like to start off sitting first back this way and then
kind of opening up. so you can drop your hips all the way down to the floor and
then stretching out your arms going into the child’s pose, or some people like to
bring out their arms first and then sit back into the child’s pose or the prayer
stretch, is what we call it sometimes. so you can do either one, but this one you
actually want to hold that stretch for about thirty seconds. so really getting
that nice full stretch in there. come back up kind of let it all stretch out
and the further you can get your bottom down to the floor the better stretch
you’re gonna get. so if you want to kind of spread your feet out of the way a
little bit, if you have that flexibility, you can do that. now if you don’t have
that much flexibility and you’re just coming to here, that’s fine. you want it
to be a comfortable stretch but feeling the stretch feeling some tension in
there. so then you’re gonna go into a kind of a cobra pose. and so the cobra
pose you’re just coming down onto your stomach and then pushing up this way. so
just really kind of trying to get that stretch. drop the hips down if you can
and then really get that pull up there. for this, some people might think that’s
a little bit too much, so if you want to start maybe just more like a prop, a
prone prop, you can do that. but if you can, eventually kind of come up into that
big push-up position. that’s going to give you that big stretch.
so again if you’re comfortable doing this, you can hold it for 30 seconds. but
when you’re first starting off, that might just be a little bit too much for
you. so doing maybe a 5 to 15 seconds so if you’re doing 30 seconds, do three of
them. if you’re doing the 5 to 10 seconds do maybe about five of them. so then
you’re gonna roll onto your back and then lie down and get
comfortable, and then this time you’re just going to do a trunk rotation. so bring
your knees together, just propping them up, and then you’re just going to roll
them over to one side. I’m trying to keep my upper back down. the the furthest hip
away is going to come up, but you should feel that stretch through the hips kind
of that low back down into that tailbone area. and so again with this one you can
do the 10 to 15 seconds, and do it five times. or if you feel like it’s a really
good stretch, you can do three of a thirty second stretch, but make sure
you’re doing both side so that you’re rotating back and forth. you should again
feel that stretch sometimes even all the way up here down, but a lot in here as
well. and just really getting that nice good stretch. and then the last one is
one that I really like to kind of help loosen up the whole hip, pelvic, coccyx
say the sacrum area. and all that is just simple bridging. and all bridging is is
you’re bringing your hips up off of the floor, and if you can’t get down on the
floor that’s okay. you can do this on your couch, you can do this on your bed,
you can do all these on your couch or your bed, but you’re really kind of
coming up one segment at a time. you don’t have to stop at each segment, but
see how I’m rolling my back down? I’m not just coming up and down like this
because then I’m not really working that that pelvis area, that tailbone area down
there. but really kind of rolling up. you don’t have to go past flat here, so you
don’t really want to arch your back because that might be uncomfortable, and
then nice and slow rolling back down. so you can just start off with maybe ten of
these going nice and slow. you can do maybe two sets of ten, and you can do all
these a couple times a day, maybe two to three times a day. yeah so there you have
it. those are my top seven ways to relieve tailbone pain in humans. if you’d
