Cross Chiropractic Center uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Sandy Springs water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Sandy Springs summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Sandy Springs 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 hurt. And it does! A new research report makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain is not reported in the medical writings before, but Cross Chiropractic Center knows it is seen in this Sandy Springs chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is properly named 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 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 occasionally experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just three sessions. (3) If Sandy Springs summer’s water fun hurts you, turn to your Sandy Springs chiropractor! Cross Chiropractic Center’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Sandy Springs tailbone pain.
