All-Natural Pain Relief

When you have endured a sports injury the first area you want to address is pain relief. Fortunately, with chiropractic care, we can help reduce your pain caused by inflammation, improper alignment, or swollen joints. Using spinal decompression we can also provide you with pinched nerve relief. This non-surgical spine treatment reduces pressure from herniated or bulging discs on your surrounding nerves. As part of our chiropractic care in West Haven, we also offer trigger point therapy to resolve tight muscles that are causing you pain.

Sports Injuries Treated in West Haven

Neck injuries, back injuries, and muscle injuries are the most common types of sports injuries we treat at our chiropractor in West Haven. Whiplash is a typical neck injury we see among sports players of high impact sports including football and soccer. Back injuries include sciatic nerve pain, pulled muscles, and herniated discs. Other sports injuries that can be treated by our chiropractor include concussions and shin splints.

Each of these injuries is generally caused by sudden force from an impact, such as when a person is hit or falls down. The musculoskeletal system is jarred out of alignment, which can lead to sciatica or pulled muscles. As for herniated discs, this occurs when the spine is jerked unexpectedly, causing the shell of the vertebrae to crack. The disc inside swells due to inflammation and presses against surrounding nerves, which leads to additional nerve pain.
