Underserved is an understatement as tailbone pain treatment often gets reduced to subtle yet destructive levels of physical and mental abuse from medical 'professionals' who don't admit how little they actually know about diagnosing and treating the condition. It's all too common in the UK to get fobbed off and dismissed, told the pain is all in your head, or to be given inappropriate and often damaging treatments based on out of date practices.
After 3 and a half years of seeking help, this book helped me navigate the health system to find the right people who could give me a proper diagnosis, leading to an appropriate and final solution.
Buy this book, read it and take it to every appointment with you. If your health care provider isn't interested in what's in it, then unless you already know they are a world expert on the field of coccydynia get out of there quickly. Its not worth the gamble. The results of a bad medical procedure in this area can be "catastrophic" (this was the word used by a consultant in the pain management department who had obviously seen the aftermath of when things had gone horribly wrong)
The doctors who helped me all respectfully acknowledged the book and the skill of Dr Foye. The ones who caused me harm all poo-pooed the validity of the book and questioned the professionalism of any doctor who would write such a book.
I would like to thank Patrick Foye for creating such a clear, comprehensive and potentially life-saving guide for those of who can't sit without pain. Your work is important and I know you come from a position of integrity and a genuine desire to relieve the suffering of those vast numbers of people worldwide who can't make it to your clinic.
This book is rather informative and really gos into detail which is fine if you are a student and wanting to write some reports. But in terms of practical infomation i can use heal my body i found nothing that i hadnt allready come across on.doctor google. The treatment of avioding sitting on the body part, using cushions and pain relief is sonething i have allready been doing for 8 months. The problem.with a lot of doctors is they some how think education is an effective form of treatment.
