Doughnut cushions are ideal for people suffering from coccyx or tailbone pain because they are designed to take pressure off this area while you are seated. Doughnut cushions are ergonomically designed to redistribute your weight so that you aren't resting on an injured tailbone. Anyone can use doughnut cushions who is suffering from haemorrhoids, coccygeal pain, a broken tailbone or who is pregnant or has lingering coccyx pain resulting from childbirth.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Place your doughnut cushion on the seat of the chair so that it is centred, and the back of the doughnut cushion is touching where the chair's seat and back meet.

  2. 2

    Sit on the doughnut cushion, making sure that your tailbone is centred over the cushion's hole with each buttock cheek resting on either side of the doughnut cushion's opening.

  3. 3

    Once seated on the doughnut cushion, lean forward slightly instead of reclining back to further alleviate tailbone pressure.

Tips and warnings

  • Purchase the doughnut cushion size that most closely matches your weight to get the support you need.
