The coccyx, commonly known as the tailbone, is a small, triangular bone located at the base of the vertebral column in humans. Comprising three to five fused vertebrae, the coccyx serves as an attachment point for ligaments, tendons, and muscles. While the coccyx doesn't have significant weight-bearing function, it offers some support to the pelvic region. Additionally, it plays a role in weight distribution when sitting and acts as a site of attachment for various muscles.
