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

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Minster summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Minster folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will observe. Which is safer? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets injured. And it does! A new research study makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t stated in the medical writings before, but Minster Chiropractic Center knows it is found in this Minster chiropractic practice’s patient population. 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 improves 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 reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who occasionally experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 sessions. (3) If Minster summer’s water fun hurts you, go to your Minster chiropractor! Minster Chiropractic Center’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Minster tailbone pain.
