Tailbone Injuries

At Dr. Anthony Obert’s Whole Health Chiropractic practice in Nampa, we assist patients struggling with pain in their spinal columns, including their tailbones. As is the case anywhere else in the spine, injuries and pressure in the tailbone can pinch nerves, which, due to the tailbone’s position, may result in sciatica.

Benefits of Massage Therapy and Chiropractic

When chiropractic care joins forces with massage therapy, the benefits for the patient are endless. Not only do these two different approaches treat sore muscles and speed up recovery from injury, they also alleviate back and joint pain. At Whole Health Chiropractic, we offer massage therapy in junction with spinal manipulation as a hands-on, drug-free approach to treating musculoskeletal conditions.
