Ouch! My tailbone.

Falling on your tailbone is often memorable. When I was 18 years old, I tried to learn how to ride a unicycle. I took off, pedaling a few revolutions until, quicker than I could respond, the one-wheeler went out from underneath me. I landed on my tailbone, the impact left me writhing on the ground. I had the wind knocked out of me and a pain that left me unable to sit comfortably for the next couple of weeks.

The impact: just a hurt tailbone. As I’ve come across patients over the last year who have had similar or more severe blows to their tailbones, I’ve noticed something more clearly. A fall on the tailbone (coccyx, to use the anatomical term) is a direct injury to the nervous system, and it is an injury that keeps on giving years later, as I have seen and experienced. The fall creates tension in your spinal cord; the spinal cord attaches into the coccyx. The tension appears to play a strong role in decreasing the power of your body. Remember: your body is an electrical circuit. A body operating at low power is similar to a light bulb operating at low power: the light bulb will not burn as bright or at all. This is the impact on the entire body. Less power to the organs. Less power to the muscles. Less power to the nerves. The impact on health may be felt immediately or more randomly years later where it is tougher to piece it together. The range of health issues is, of course, all over the place. But, now we know that a blow to the tailbone is not as minor as we may have considered.

Having the tailbone adjusted to take that tension off the spinal cord is a game changer for one’s health. I have seen this a number of times now over the last year as I have been adjusting those with this issue and history. It takes the tension off the entire nervous system and the power goes back up…immediately. The light bulb burns brighter. Energy goes up. Sleep improves. Ability to handle life’s stresses improves. Pain subsides. Etc. What equates to an overall better quality of life. If you are struggling with your health it may be worth your time to look into see if your tailbone is functioning within its system optimally.
