What can be the possible reasons for tail/hip bone area. What is the suggested treatment ?

Physiotherapist, Vasco
It is mostly attributed to wrong sitting posture and body weight, though even a thin person can get it too. Suggested treatment includes change of sitting posture after postural assessment,many times doughnut shaped pillow or tyre tube is helpful in sitting, Icing the area frequently and Physiotherapy is required. Post the sessions the strengthening exercises should be continued so that it does not reoccur.

Simple solutions are to massage mustard oil along the lumbar spine before taking bath. Keeps soft pillow below the knee joint while sleeping. This will relax the sciatic nerve (which is the cause of pain.) if you are traveling on a bike than kindly reduce it. Try to sit in erect posture. Drink more water.

Hi pain could be because of bony spurs in the heel. Get x-ray done. And wear heel cushions in the shoes, take ultrasound therapy and contrast bath in physiotherapy. It helps along with foot ankle ex's.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.
