What is the function of the coccyx?

A coccyx is the end of your spine (tail bone; well actually 3, 4 or 5 bones that are part fused together). It helps you sit down comfortably by providing a third point of impact and lots of muscles and tendons attach to it such as those controlling your pelvic floor muscles which help you know when to go to the toilet and those that help you walk.
