Coxalgia is any type of pain in the coccygeal sacral region (sacrum and coccyx) which is the lower terminal portion of the spine.
Pain in the lower waist region, pain between the buttocks and sliding towards the groin and genital region. Numbness, tingling and loss of strength in the legs.
It is usually preceded by a fall onto the tailbone. A sudden onset of symptoms is most common, although there may be cases with a slow onset of symptoms. In the most severe cases, it can be accompanied by erectile dysfunction and difficulty urinating and defecating.
Coxalgia can be a symptom of another disease, such as osteoporosis. For this reason, it is important to attend a clinical interview with a trained physician. Furthermore, you may need imaging studies, such as x-rays or MRIs, to rule out possible complications or underlying conditions.
At the Centro de la Columna Vertebral we have a treatment based on a unique combination of intravenously medications that have the primary function of relieving pain. They also help stimulate the regeneration of damaged structures in the sacralcoccygeal region and relax the muscles of the sacraliliac region and the buttocks, as well as regenerate the sacral nerves.
The treatment is complemented by physical therapy, as well as the application of local infiltrations with various types of medication for immediate discomfort control.
