Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn offers chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Ashburn water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Ashburn summer day than to delight in a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Ashburn folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will view from distance. Which is better? Observing! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets injured. And it does! A new research report makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain is not reported in the medical writings before, but Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows it’s seen in this Ashburn chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is properly called 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 increases function without any additional problems for patients with chronic coccydynia (coccyx pain). (2) Usual care of coccyx pain is physical therapy and pharmacological treatment. Adding manipulation reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just three sessions. (3) If Ashburn summer’s water fun harms you, visit your Ashburn chiropractor! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Ashburn tailbone pain.
