Wilson Family Chiropractic uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Millville water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Millville summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Millville folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. 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 study makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t stated in the medical writings before, but Wilson Family Chiropractic knows it’s found in this Millville chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is formally called the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may develop into coccygeal instability and pain. (1) Like 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 experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just three treatments. (3) If Millville summer’s water fun harms you, visit your Millville chiropractor! Wilson Family Chiropractic’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Millville tailbone pain.
