Chiropractic Care offers chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Chicago water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Chicago summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Chicago folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will view from distance. Which is better? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets injured. And it does! A new research study explains that water ride related tailbone pain is not stated in the medical literature before, but Chiropractic Care knows it is seen in this Chicago 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 improves 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 sometimes experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 treatments. (3) If Chicago summer’s water fun harms you, visit your Chicago chiropractor! Chiropractic Care’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Chicago tailbone pain.
