Question about tailbone and back

I recently have injured my tailbone. It is either cracked or just a bad bruise. The problem is i don't know how it happened. I am a college freshmen and over thansgiving breaks i noticed pain when i woke up in the morning on my tailbone, it is now bruised and swollen. I do not know how it happened, but i was wondering if anyone knew if you can injure your tailbone by cracking your back. I tend to crack my back about once a day and was wondering if this might of caused it. Also any advice on how to relieve the pain on a bruised or broken tailbone?

thank you to anyone that can give any help!

Re: Question about tailbone and back

Hi Sky I would suggest getting xrays or a CT done! I'm sure it's possible to injure your tailbone by constantly cracking your back, but can't be positive!
I have bulging discs in my back which also causes pain in my tailbone! The only relief I find, is usually from heat!! I know when we're talking about inflammation, we're suppose to use ice, but it only tightens my whole body up LOL! Take care!!
