Coccydynia is a medical term meaning pain in the coccyx or tailbone area, often brought on by a fall onto the coccyx or by persistent irritation usually from sitting.
The coccyx, commonly referred to as the tailbone, is the final segment of the vertebral column in humans and apes, and certain other mammals such as horses.
The ischium forms the lower and back part of the hip bone (os coxae).
The levator ani is a broad, thin muscle, situated on either side of the pelvis.
Muscle is a soft tissue found in most animals.
The pelvic floor or pelvic diaphragm is composed of muscle fibers of the levator ani, the coccygeus muscle, and associated connective tissue which span the area underneath the pelvis.
The pelvis (plural pelves or pelvises) is either the lower part of the trunk of the human body between the abdomen and the thighs (sometimes also called pelvic region of the trunk) or the skeleton embedded in it (sometimes also called bony pelvis, or pelvic skeleton).
The piriformis is a muscle in the gluteal region of the lower limb.
The pudendal nerve is the main nerve of the perineum.
The sacral spinal nerve 3 (S3) is a spinal nerve of the sacral segment.
The sacral spinal nerve 4 (S4) is a spinal nerve of the sacral segment.
The sacral spinal nerve 5 (S5) is a spinal nerve of the sacral segment.
The sacrospinous ligament (small or anterior sacrosciatic ligament) is a thin, triangular ligament in the human pelvis.
The sacrum (or; plural: sacra or sacrums) in human anatomy is a large, triangular bone at the base of the spine, that forms by the fusing of sacral vertebrae S1S5 between 18 and 30years of age.
A spinal nerve is a mixed nerve, which carries motor, sensory, and autonomic signals between the spinal cord and the body.
