Apple Country Chiropractic offers chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Williamson water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Williamson summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Williamson folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will observe. Which is better? Watching! Water slides and rides may go 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 Apple Country Chiropractic knows it is found in this Williamson chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is formally named 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 medication 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 sessions. (3) If Williamson summer’s water fun hurts you, turn to your Williamson chiropractor! Apple Country Chiropractic’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Williamson tailbone pain.
