Vancouver Spine Care Centre uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Vancouver water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Vancouver summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Vancouver folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. 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 writings before, but Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows it is found in this Vancouver chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is formally named the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may result in 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 increases function without any complications 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 3 treatments. (3) If Vancouver summer’s water fun harms you, visit your Vancouver chiropractor! Vancouver Spine Care Centre’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Vancouver tailbone pain.
