Coccygodynia "A Pain the Rear" with Dr. James J. Lehman, DC, MBA, DABCO
Coccygodynia has been termed as a "Pain in the Rear." The painful coccyx first coined as "coccygodynia" some 150 years ago is still a misunderstood symptom that affects women more frequently than men and most often after a traumatic incident.
Sixty percent of patients with common coccygodynia present with mechanical coccygeal lesions that most frequently follow a fall onto the buttocks.
If you or a family member has been suffering with this pain in the rear, come find out if you may gain relief with conservative treatment and avoid surgery.
Bring a brown bag lunch and we'll supply the coffee and dessert.
Dr. Lehman trained to perform intra-rectal coccygeal manipulation for patients suffering with coccygodynia during his intern training in Canada following graduation from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1972. During his 33 years of chiropractic practice in New Mexico, he modified his therapeutic approach to include myofascial treatment based upon the teaching of Drs. Janet Travell and David Simon.
He found that the response to care was excellent with reduced costs and improved patient satisfaction. Dr. Lehman is an Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences at the University of Bridgeport/College of Chiropractic. He is board-certified as a chiropractic orthopedist and chairperson of the Chiropractic Research Committee at the University of Bridgeport.
