Johnson Chiropractic offers chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Richmond water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Richmond summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Richmond folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will view from distance. Which is better? Watching! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets injured. And it does! A new research report describes that water ride related tailbone pain is not reported in the medical literature before, but Johnson Chiropractic knows it’s seen in this Richmond chiropractic practice’s patient population. 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 eases pain and increases function without any complications 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 have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just three treatments. (3) If Richmond summer’s water fun hurts you, turn to your Richmond chiropractor! Johnson Chiropractic’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Richmond tailbone pain.
