Understanding the Science Behind iTrac Therapy
iTrac Therapy is a revolutionary treatment for relieving headaches, neck pain, back pain, and TMJ pain. Many of our patients have been asking our chiropractor, Dr. Nichols, “What’s the secret behind iTrac Therapy? How does it relieve my headache pain without any medication?” The secret is pretty simple, actually!
How iTrac Therapy Treats Headaches
Eight out of 10 individuals with headache pain also have a problem with forward head posture, which may be directly contributing to their pain. iTrac Therapy corrects forward head posture, eliminating the root cause for this pain. Below, our chiropractor shares three things you should know about how iTrac Therapy works:
#1: Forward head posture increase stress and strains the muscles.
If you work at a desk, there’s a good chance you’re already struggling with the effects of forward head posture and may not even realize it. Whenever we type on a computer or look at our phones, our neck leans forward slightly to see the screen. Without even realizing it, we start adopting a forward head posture that increases stress and strain on the muscles, ligaments and discs in the cervical spine. The result: not only is your neck more vulnerable to injury, this increase in stress also triggers headaches, neck pain, upper back pain and TMJ pain/dysfunction.
#2: iTrac relieves pain by correcting forward head posture.
Ideal posture places the center of gravity of the head directly over the shoulders. Prior to iTrac, most posture treatment methods focused on the shoulders and pelvis, rather than the cervical spine. While these treatments were certainly beneficial for symptomatic relief, they failed to effectively correct forward head posture on a long-term basis. iTrac is a safe, effective cervical curve remodeling system that relieves cervicogenic symptoms and helps bring correct alignment back to the cervical spine.
#3: The entire body is aligned when the head is aligned.
iTrac is based on a simple principle: correct spinal alignment starts with the head and neck. Following iTrac Therapy, our patients benefit from fewer headaches as well as less neck pain and back pain which leads to a dramatic improvement in quality of life.
