New Roads Chiropractic Center uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a New Roads water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, New Roads summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some New Roads folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is safer? 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 explains that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t stated in the medical writings before, but New Roads Chiropractic Center knows it’s seen in this New Roads chiropractic practice’s patient population. The tailbone is formally called the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may develop into coccygeal instability and pain. (1) Like the rest of the spine, the coccyx has discs and dorsal root ganglia, too. DRG stimulation eases pain and increases function without any complications for patients with chronic coccydynia (coccyx pain). (2) Usual care of coccyx pain is physical therapy and pharmacological treatment. Adding manipulation decreased pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who occasionally experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just three sessions. (3) If New Roads summer’s water fun harms you, turn to your New Roads chiropractor! New Roads Chiropractic Center’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your New Roads tailbone pain.
