Palmer Chiropractic Center uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Lynchburg water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Lynchburg summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Lynchburg folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is safer? Watching! Water slides and rides may turn 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 literature before, but Palmer Chiropractic Center knows it’s seen in this Lynchburg chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is properly called the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may result in 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 sometimes experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just three treatments. (3) If Lynchburg summer’s water fun hurts you, go to your Lynchburg chiropractor! Palmer Chiropractic Center’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Lynchburg tailbone pain.
