In this episode, I sit down with fellow physiotherapist, Susannah Britnell to discuss:

  • Symptoms typically seen with clients who have tailbone pain
  • What muscles and structures attach to the coccyx/tailbone
  • Reasons why people have tailbone pain
  • Typical course of treatment
  • What pelvic health physiotherapy has to offer
  • What the research says

Susannah Britnell works mostly in private practice at Urban Healing in Vancouver BC, working collaboratively with clients of all ages and genders in the areas of pregnancy and postpartum, orthopedics, pelvic health and persistent pain, including genital pain and bladder, bowel and sexual pain concerns.
Susannah worked for years at BC Women’s and the interdisciplinary team at the Centre for Pelvic Pain, gaining invaluable experience working with people with perinatal concerns and persistent pelvic pain.
Susannah has presented both internationally and locally, to professionals and patients. She is an adjunct professor in the UBC Masters of Physiotherapy program and an instructor for Rost Therapy and Pelvic Health Solutions. She has co authorized several papers with the Centre of Pelvic Pain & Endometriosis. Susannah has been a mentor for the Pain Science Mentorship program and has served on the CPA Women’s Health Division and Pain Science Division Committees.
