Soft Health and Healing Clinic offers chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Brooks water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Brooks summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Brooks folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will observe. Which is safer? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets damaged. And it does! A new research report describes that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t stated in the medical literature before, but Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows it is found in this Brooks 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 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 reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just 3 treatments. (3) If Brooks summer’s water fun hurts you, go to your Brooks chiropractor! Soft Health and Healing Clinic’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Brooks tailbone pain.
