Sitz Bone Pain Relief

Sometimes life is a literal pain in the butt. If you're experiencing some pain or cramping when you sit for long periods of time, this program can help with that!

Your ischial tuberosities aka "sitz bones" are the structural bases of support for how you sit. Hence the name, sitz. Tightness in your pelvic floor, joints surrounding the pelvis, or even your hamstrings can contribute to feeling some pain, cramping, or weakness in your booty, legs, and feet. Follow along with the videos below to start on the path to comfy sittin'.

Learn how to use supports so you can sit longer and with less pain.

Equipment: bath towels, pillows, small step stool or books for feet

Sitting at a desk all day can be painful, but when you have pain, chairs look like torture devices.  With a few things you have lying around the house you can make your seat more comfortable.  In this video I will show you how to add supports to your chair to best position yourself so you can sit longer and with less pain.

Weight should be forwards of the sitz bones, otherwise the pelvis just rolls backwards to allow us to slump. In order to help support this we can use the following:

  • Triangle folded towel for seat, helps to position the pelvis more forwards of the sit bones and get more weight into your feet
  • Pillows behind back so that 50% of thigh is on the chair. Allows you to reach our key boards, but still have a substantial base of support
  • Folded towels for pelvis pain or tailbone pain.  When having pressure against your perineum or coccyx hurts, you can build up the seat to help elevate yourself off those painful areas
