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

What better fun is there on a hot, McHenry summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some McHenry folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is better? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets damaged. And it does! A new research report describes that water ride related tailbone pain is not stated in the medical literature before, but OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows it’s seen in this McHenry 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) 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 reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just three sessions. (3) If McHenry summer’s water fun hurts you, turn to your McHenry chiropractor! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your McHenry tailbone pain.
