Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Manchester water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Manchester summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Manchester folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will observe. Which is safer? Observing! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets damaged. And it does! A new research report explains that water ride related tailbone pain is not reported in the medical literature before, but Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows it is seen in this Manchester chiropractic practice’s patient population. The tailbone is formally 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 reduces 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 medication treatment. Adding manipulation reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who occasionally have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just 3 sessions. (3) If Manchester summer’s water fun hurts you, turn to your Manchester chiropractor! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Manchester tailbone pain.
