Tailbone injury

So I flew off the pull-up bar 5 days ago and landed on my tailbone. Needless to say, I was out for the rest of the WOD. I worked out Saturday, but went light weight because it still hurt. Today I did Helen, and the running sucked...mostly from the jiggling of the sore srea. I really don't think anything is broken (ie. I can move and bend all the normal ways), but should I really be working out again yet?

If you have to ask, probably not.

If it's still that sore after a week, getting an x-ray may not be a bad idea.

Arnica montana gel (available at GNC and similar stores) helps bruises heal faster.

Re: Tailbone injury

if it remains painful get it checked.......Sometimes it needs to be set back in place.

that baing said, I broke my tailbone years ago, and it just healed where it was (tucked under).......Besides a month of sitting crooked on chairs, I dont have any problems now. Kind of like a broken toe, just suck it up and don't offend it too much
