You could try either. If it's specifically tailbone, I would start with chiro - they might be able to manipulate it better than a PT. But either would probably help. It depends on your philosophy towards treatment as the two professions approach injury & management in two different ways. Chiro is a bit more holistic, whereas PT is going to be more medical. Does that make sense? I have some PT training, not as extensive and related more to athletic injuries, but I'll look back at my notes to see if there is anything in there that might help you. I didn't treat a lot of tailbone issues with my athletes
