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

What more fun is there on a hot, Plainville summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Plainville folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is safer? Watching! Water slides and rides may turn 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 reported in the medical literature before, but Layden Chiropractic knows it’s seen in this Plainville 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) 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 pharmacological 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 Plainville summer’s water fun hurts you, go to your Plainville chiropractor! Layden Chiropractic’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Plainville tailbone pain.
