I fell on my tailbone during hockey and it hurts. I've used ice for three days. Any ideas on how to help?

Broke his tail bone GO TO THE DOCTOR thats one thing you should really not try to heal on your own especially in hockey

Unfortunately it's going to hurt like heck for a while :( I was crossing a stream once with my dog on a leash, just as I stepped on a slippery rock he pulled and made me fall right on that rock on my tailbone... owie.. I was on the first day of a 4 day vacation and had to continue on (well didn't *have* to but as I rarely get to go places on vacation I was determined to) , it was horrible. It hurt for WEEKS after though. There isn't a whole lot you can do except take it easy and sit gently :(

Unfortunately, a doctor can do little for a bruised or broken tailbone, except prescribe pain meds or anti-inflamitories. It may take a very long time to heal; I broke mine 7 months ago and it still hurts. My doctor said it could last up to 2 years!! I've and ibuprofen worked best for me, as well as a "doughnut".
