The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Colorado Springs water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Colorado Springs summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Colorado Springs folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will view from distance. Which is better? Observing! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets hurt. And it does! A new research report makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain is not reported in the medical literature before, but The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows it is found in this Colorado Springs 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 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 medication treatment. Adding manipulation reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who occasionally experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 treatments. (3) If Colorado Springs summer’s water fun harms you, turn to your Colorado Springs chiropractor! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Colorado Springs tailbone pain.
