Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Pensacola water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Pensacola summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Pensacola folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will view from afar. Which is safer? Observing! Water slides and rides may go 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 Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows it’s found in this Pensacola chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is properly called the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may result in 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 occasionally have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just 3 treatments. (3) If Pensacola summer’s water fun hurts you, visit your Pensacola chiropractor! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Pensacola tailbone pain.
