Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC uses chiropractic manipulation to ease tailbone pain after a La Grande water ride or water slide injury to the coccyx. 

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

What better fun is there on a hot, La Grande summer day than to enjoy a cool-water water ride or water slide? Most all of us can all relate to that! Some La Grande folks will do the sliding and riding, and some will watch. Which is safer? Viewing from afar! Water slides and rides may go from fun to pain if the tailbone gets injured. And it does! A new research report describes that water ride related tailbone pain isn’t stated in the medical literature before, but Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows it is seen in this La Grande chiropractic practice’s patient group. 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 reduces 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 treatments. (3) If La Grande summer’s water fun harms you, visit your La Grande chiropractor! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC’s gentle manipulation may soothe the coccyx’s discs and DRGs and relieve your La Grande tailbone pain.
