Healthy News - July 2018 Fort Wayne Water Slides and Rides: Summer Fun May HurtFort Wayne Tailbone (Coccyx) Pain What more fun is there on a hot, Fort Wayne summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Fort Wayne folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is better? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets hurt. And it does! A new research study explains that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t stated in the medical writings before, but Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows it is found in this Fort Wayne chiropractic practice’s patient population. 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 reduces pain and improves 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 Fort Wayne summer’s water fun hurts you, visit your Fort Wayne chiropractor! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Fort Wayne tailbone pain.
