One of the main causes of diseases of the Sacro-coccygeal Department is mechanical trauma. It usually leads to degenerative changes of plan with further development of the coccygodynia: pain which is mainly associated with heavy load on the coccyx, which may be due to stretching or degeneration of the coccygeal ligamentous apparatus with the design. In females this disease usually begins to develop after birth.
