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.
Not really a hip, knee, ankle problem, a pelvic bone problem.http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-a-twisted-pelvis.htm
In turn this misaligned my left leg so it is rotating inwards. You can feel my left pelvic bone is not where it should be.
Just got a requisition for an Xray. the reason never had an Xray is I have an unusual high tolerance to pain. Never felt pain from the initial fall. Broke a rib and was unaware of it until six months later after everyone where I worked had an Xray. I had been bucked off my horse six months prior. I had my appendices removed, after surgery had no pain, did not take any medication. Had a hysterectomy, again did not have any pain, no meds. Doctors in both cases were so surprised.
