Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a Largo water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, Largo summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? We can all relate to that! Some Largo folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will observe. Which is better? Watching! Water slides and rides may turn from fun to pain if the tailbone gets damaged. And it does! A new research report explains that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t reported in the medical literature before, but Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows it is found in this Largo chiropractic practice’s patient group. The tailbone is properly named the coccyx, the lowest section of the spine, and tailbone injury may result in 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 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 reduced pain and disability for chronic coccydynia patients (who occasionally experience low back pain and leg pain as well) in just three treatments. (3) If Largo summer’s water fun harms you, go to your Largo chiropractor! Hollstrom & Associates Inc’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your Largo tailbone pain.
