Malverne Health & Wellness offers chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Malverne water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Malverne summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Malverne folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is safer? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets hurt. And it does! A new research report makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain is not stated in the medical writings before, but Malverne Health & Wellness knows it is found in this Malverne 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 decreased pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who occasionally have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just 3 treatments. (3) If Malverne summer’s water fun harms you, visit your Malverne chiropractor! Malverne Health & Wellness’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Malverne tailbone pain.
