Augusta Water Slides and Rides: Summer Fun May Hurt
Augusta Tailbone (Coccyx) Pain
What better fun is there on a hot, Augusta summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Augusta 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 study makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain is not reported in the medical literature before, but Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows it’s found in this Augusta 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 reduces pain and increases function without any complications 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 have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just three treatments. (3) If Augusta summer’s water fun hurts you, go to your Augusta chiropractor! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Augusta tailbone pain.
