Executive Chiropractic of Iowa uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a West Des Moines water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

West Des Moines Water Slides and Rides: Summer Fun May Hurt
West Des Moines Tailbone (Coccyx) Pain

What more fun is there on a hot, West Des Moines summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some West Des Moines folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is safer? Watching! 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 is not reported in the medical writings before, but Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows it’s found in this West Des Moines chiropractic practice’s patient population. The tailbone is formally 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 eases pain and increases 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 occasionally experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 treatments. (3) If West Des Moines summer’s water fun hurts you, go to your West Des Moines chiropractor! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your West Des Moines tailbone pain.
