Chiropractic Solutions uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a San Jose water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What more fun is there on a hot, San Jose summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some San Jose folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. 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 report makes clear that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t stated in the medical literature before, but Chiropractic Solutions knows it is seen in this San Jose 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 eases pain and increases 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 decreased pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who sometimes experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just 3 sessions. (3) If San Jose summer’s water fun hurts you, visit your San Jose chiropractor! Chiropractic Solutions’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and lessen your San Jose tailbone pain.
