Tailbone complaints are one of the most mysterious problems. The majority of these complaints arise spontaneously, with no apparent cause. RX, CT, or MRI frequently does not provide a definite answer about the cause.

Tailbone complaints can be the result of underlying problems of the reproductive organs, intestines and scar tissue after surgery. The issues are often related to Crohn's, diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, endometriosis, chlamydia, fibroids, hypertensive pelvic floor, after hysterectomy, after cesarean section, after appendectomy, ....

The treatment is highly individualized & patient-oriented: a clear explanation and informed consent always precede the osteopathic examination and treatment.

Scar tissue

Colette's specialization is treating the functional consequences of scar tissue, adhesions, briden after gender reassignment surgical treatments (plastic and reconstructive surgery).

Scar creation varies by individual, surgical technique, complications, and skin type.

The production of scar tissue and its breakdown is a complex physiological mechanism where a lot can go wrong resulting in permanent scar tissue, adhesions, and briden. This can cause peritoneum, small pelvic structures, abdominal structures (ligaments, fascia) and organs to stick together that should not be connected. This can manifest itself in functional complaints due to loss of movement and reduced blood flow/oxygenation/metabolism of organs and structures in the small pelvis and abdomen.
