Riding on some types of roller-coaster is an effective way of removing kidney stones. This is the conclusion of research that has won this year's Ig Nobel Prize [a spoof award] for Medicine. The US researchers who carried out the work recommend that those afflicted with the condition should regularly use the theme park attractions.

LOL I had this happen on magnum. Ended up in the hospital in Columbus. It was the first one I had and I was in so much pain.
I was going to suggest Legend, but Magnum would certainly do it. Were you near the front?
Must be why I wound up in the hospital in February.
Last seat in the last car Belmont Park Giant Dipper, I guarantee it.......
One of my Facebook friends was suffering with a kidney stone this summer; Steel Vengeance knocked it loose. So the anecdotal evidence is out there...

Never had a kidney stone but Big Dipper at Geauga Lake fixed my back once.
Research using roller coasters is just silly.
Yeah, how could you take those academics seriously?
Having experienced this excruciating pain twice now I'm pretty sure I'd let a roller coaster run me over if I thought it could dislodge the kidney stone.Last edited by wahoo skipper, Wednesday, September 19, 2018 1:02 PM
