Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Baton Rouge water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Baton Rouge summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Baton Rouge folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will observe. Which is safer? Watching! 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 isn’t reported in the medical writings before, but Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows it’s found in this Baton Rouge 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) Like the rest of the spine, the coccyx has discs and dorsal root ganglia, too. DRG stimulation eases 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 decreased pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just three treatments. (3) If Baton Rouge summer’s water fun hurts you, turn to your Baton Rouge chiropractor! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Baton Rouge tailbone pain.
