Manhattan Chiropractor Nichols Chiropractic Now Offering iTrac Therapy to Relieve Symptoms of “Text Neck”

MANHATTAN, Kan., May 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kansas chiropractor Nichols Chiropractic is pleased to announce the addition of an effective new therapy to their suite of services. The innovative iTrac Therapy System allows for targeted relief of cervicogenic headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ Disorders, as well as modern issues like “text neck.”

Dr. Nichols of Nichols Chiropractic is a pioneer in iTrac Therapy and serves on the clinical support team for Pivotal Health Solutions, assisting other chiropractors in integrating the therapy within their own clinics. In addition to relieving headaches and neck pain, iTrac Therapy also helps to alleviate pain from back and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, all without the need for medication.

The American Council for Headache Education and National Institute of Neurological Disorders report that 95 percent of women and 90 percent of men experience headaches. Around eight out of ten people use a chronic forward head posture during texting and other activities, a direct contributor to these symptoms.

Forward head posture strains and stresses the neck muscles and ligaments as well as the discs of the cervical spine. This causes the neck to become vulnerable to dysfunction and injury. There is also increased discomfort and pain in the neck, head and back. Forward head posture and cervical spine issues are also major contributors to TMJ pain and dysfunction.

In general, forward head posture is a primary source of many head, neck and back conditions. Unfortunately, technology and modern innovations are actually setting the stage for even more problems caused by forward head posture. Whenever people use a computer or smartphone, most tend to lean forward from the neck to view the screen. Over time, many people adopt a forward head posture as their normal way of using these devices, which can cause stress and strain on the cervical spine.

iTrac therapy protocols help to restore normal neck and head posture. This in turn eliminates a main factor underlying headaches, neck and back pain and TMJ disorders. iTrac is a cervical curve remodeling system that safely corrects cervical spine abnormalities. The iTrac Therapy System relieves pain by gently and effectively restoring the neck curve, correcting forward head posture.

Dr. Jarrod Nichols, DC, CSCS explains, “When the head is properly aligned, the entire body tends to naturally fall into alignment. iTrac begins with the head and neck to help restore correct spinal alignment. After iTrac, our patients report less headaches, less neck and back pain, and fewer TMJ symptoms in addition to general improvement in their quality of life.”
