Coccygeal nerve

We just learned about the Sacral Nerves.

Further down the spinal column is the Coccygeal nerve.
This is the last spinal nerve at the bottom of the spinal column.

The coccygeal nerve is the 31st pair of spinal nerves. It arises from the conus medullaris, and its anterior root helps form the coccygeal plexus. It does not divide into a medial and lateral branch. It is distributed to the skin over the back of the coccyx.
