    Tailbone pain

    Okay so today i was doing deadlifts

    On warmup set i felt sharp pain in the tailbone that radiated to my left ass cheek

    I still feel slight pain when walking/getting up

    What to do? I have 2 rest days coming, and on monday i should do legs(squats mainly) and that worries me

    Took ibuprofen and i've put diclofenac creme on that spot

    Sit on a bag of ice for the next few days. Do not heat it, at all. Do piriformis stretches. If it still hurts on leg day. Do isolating lifts for legs, if you sprained a ligement in the tail bone you need to rest it. If not you can keep it irritated and it will be miserable.

    Know that feeling.

    It can be the piriformis muscle or just a disc compressing a nerve.

    I got better just with taking it easy and some deep tissue massage.
    (It's incredible how much massage helps, even if it's not directly muscle related massage can do wonders, my therapist follows the Anatomy-TRAIN approach.

    He's fixed a shoulder injury I had for many months with just a couple of treatments.

    Listen to your body and don't do anything that cause more pain.

    And MS probably knows his stuff in this regard.

    Which brings me to the a question MS;
    I rarely do ice. I rather use heat.
    But it's basically ice for acute, heat for "chronic" right?

    A few tips, I manage a non-narcotic based pain management clinic.

    Avoid massage while acute because creating inflammation is the primary therapeutic effect of massage. This can cause extra swelling and thus more pain. Wait until after you have iced 2-3 days to bring swelling down.

    I still like ice for the first 72 hours after injury. After that a contrast of hot and cold helps cycle fluids. During an acute outbreak of inflammation. Heat draws in more swelling and can actually cause more pain or Delay in the reduction of inflammation during the normal healing process.

    I know there is research that is agains ice and pro heat. But I still feel the body of evidence supports icing for af least the first 72 hours.
