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

What more fun is there on a hot, Ottawa summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Ottawa folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will view from afar. Which is better? Watching! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets injured. And it does! A new research study describes that water ride related tailbone pain is not stated in the medical writings before, but The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows it’s seen in this Ottawa chiropractic practice’s patient population. The tailbone is formally called the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may develop into 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 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 decreased pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 treatments. (3) If Ottawa summer’s water fun harms you, go to your Ottawa chiropractor! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider’s gentle manipulation may calm the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Ottawa tailbone pain.
