Spine and Back Health
Broken Tail Bone
Hi. Have been in pain for the last four months and was recently diagnosed with a broken tail bone. My problem though is the nerve pain which has resulted as it seems that the bone is resting on the nerves on the left side so I have pain radiating through my left leg and butt.
Would be grateful for any suggestions thanks
