Carrolltown Water Slides and Rides: Summer Fun May Hurt
Carrolltown Tailbone (Coccyx) Pain

What more fun is there on a hot, Carrolltown summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Carrolltown folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is better? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets injured. And it does! A new research report describes that water ride related tailbone pain is not stated in the medical literature before, but Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows it’s found in this Carrolltown chiropractic practice’s patient population. The tailbone is properly named the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may develop into 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 increases 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 occasionally experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 treatments. (3) If Carrolltown summer’s water fun harms you, go to your Carrolltown chiropractor! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Carrolltown tailbone pain.
