Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Groton water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Groton summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some Groton folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will view from afar. Which is safer? Watching! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets hurt. And it does! A new research study describes that water ride related tailbone pain is not reported in the medical writings before, but Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows it is seen in this Groton 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) 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 reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who occasionally have low back pain and leg pain, too) in just three sessions. (3) If Groton summer’s water fun hurts you, go to your Groton chiropractor! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Groton tailbone pain.
