How Long Does It Take a Broken Tailbone to Heal?

Answer

How long it takes for a broken tailbone, or coccyx, to heal will depend on how proactive the patient is with resting the area. Excessive use of the tailbone while healing will delay the process. With rest, relaxation, ice packs, and the use of air cushions, a fractured tailbone can heal in about 2 months. Those recovering from a broken tailbone should not sit for long periods of time.
