Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Eugene water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Eugene summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Eugene folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will observe. 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 report explains that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t stated in the medical literature before, but Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows it’s seen in this Eugene chiropractic practice’s patient population. The tailbone is properly named 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 reduces pain and improves 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 treatments. (3) If Eugene summer’s water fun harms you, turn to your Eugene chiropractor! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your Eugene tailbone pain.

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