Watertown Wellness Center uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Watertown water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Watertown summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Watertown folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will view from distance. Which is better? Watching! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets damaged. And it does! A new research study makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain is not stated in the medical literature before, but Watertown Wellness Center knows it is found in this Watertown 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 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 reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 sessions. (3) If Watertown summer’s water fun harms you, visit your Watertown chiropractor! Watertown Wellness Center’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Watertown tailbone pain.
