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

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

What more fun is there on a hot, Oxford summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Oxford folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will observe. Which is better? Watching! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets hurt. And it does! A new research study describes that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t reported in the medical literature before, but Satterwhite Chiropractic knows it’s seen in this Oxford chiropractic practice’s patient population. The tailbone is properly called 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 pharmacological treatment. Adding manipulation reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 treatments. (3) If Oxford summer’s water fun harms you, go to your Oxford chiropractor! Satterwhite Chiropractic’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Oxford tailbone pain.
