Coccygeal fractures, strains and misalignments don't cause hip and knee problems. While they can cause significant pain an refer pain to the buttocks, the coccygeal ligaments are too small to exert a significant mechanical strain on the much larger hip joints or to the distal knee joints. In addition to the coccyx, a hard fall on the buttocks can injure and misalign the hips and pelvis. It can lead to permanent deformation if it occurs during the formative years. It can also cause compression fractures in the lumbar and thoracic spine and subsequent spondylosis, scoliosis and stenosis. Skiing is also associated with hard sit down type falls. I have also had many patients who injured the coccyx due to slips on stairs, as well as martial arts kicks.
