Chiropractic Associates uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Preston water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Preston summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Preston 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 report describes that water ride related tailbone pain is not stated in the medical writings before, but Chiropractic Associates knows it’s found in this Preston chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is formally named the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may result in 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 reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just three treatments. (3) If Preston summer’s water fun harms you, go to your Preston chiropractor! Chiropractic Associates’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Preston tailbone pain.

Preston chiropractic and acupuncture may help pregnancy-related back pain and lumbopelvic pain.
