St. Francisville Water Slides and Rides: Summer Fun May Hurt
St. Francisville Tailbone (Coccyx) Pain

What more fun is there on a hot, St. Francisville summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some St. Francisville folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will observe. Which is better? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets hurt. And it does! A new research study makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain is not stated in the medical literature before, but Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows it’s found in this St. Francisville chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is properly called the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may result in coccygeal instability and pain. (1) Just as with the rest of the spine, the coccyx has discs and dorsal root ganglia, too. DRG stimulation eases pain and improves function without any additional problems for patients with chronic coccydynia (coccyx pain). (2) Usual care of coccyx pain is physical therapy and medication treatment. Adding manipulation decreased pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just 3 sessions. (3) If St. Francisville summer’s water fun harms you, turn to your St. Francisville chiropractor! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your St. Francisville tailbone pain.
