Customer Question

My daughter is 2 and she was injured at a park and her lower back caused her pain, she can walk and sit okay but certain positions cause her pain and to cry. We just noticed her lower spine just above the butt there is a grape sized bump, which is her coccyx were assuming, but the bruise is to one side! Is her coccyx dislocated? We were waiting until Monday (It's Sat night) to call ped, should we go sooner?

Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

Can you send a picture of the bump?

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 3 months ago.

Hello again,

You may be having difficulty in sending picture.
From the description of location of bump, it is unlikely coccyx injury.
She needs to keep the part at rest avoid activity which elicits the pain.
Icing can be done in the early stage.
You need to apply it after wrapping in towel not directly.
Motrin or tylenol can be given.
If the pain gets severe, I would advise to consult doctor sooner.
He can take an X Ray, i he feels necessary.
I hope this information will be helpful.
