Pflugerville Wellness Center uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Pflugerville water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Pflugerville summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Pflugerville folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is safer? Observing! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets injured. And it does! A new research report explains that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t reported in the medical literature before, but Pflugerville Wellness Center knows it’s seen in this Pflugerville chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is formally 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 increases 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 reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who occasionally experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 sessions. (3) If Pflugerville summer’s water fun hurts you, turn to your Pflugerville chiropractor! Pflugerville Wellness Center’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Pflugerville tailbone pain.
