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

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Manahawkin summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Manahawkin folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will view from distance. Which is better? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets hurt. And it does! A new research report describes that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t reported in the medical literature before, but Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows it’s seen in this Manahawkin chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is properly 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 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 have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just three treatments. (3) If Manahawkin summer’s water fun hurts you, turn to your Manahawkin chiropractor! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Manahawkin tailbone pain.

Manahawkin chiropractic and acupuncture may help pregnancy-related back pain and lumbopelvic pain.
