TREATMENT

The Wooley-Kemper Procedure

The Wooley-Kemper procedure works by freeing the coccyx back into a more normal function with a non-surgical procedure.

Each patient is first assessed for restricted back flexibility and thigh strength. Next, a local anesthetic can be provided, if needed. Then, the physician makes an internal rectal contact with the coccyx. Along with one or two assistants, the patient’s spine and coccyx are flexed back and forth until improved function is achieved. After the procedure the patient is assessed again for back flexibility and thigh strength.

Results vary, but most patients who regain coccygeal function will rapidly improve and will usually retain their improvement with regular exercise.
