Our rehabilitation protocols use postural neuro-movements, physiotherapy, exercises, and iTrac® therapy. The iTrac® is a modern and effective seated therapy device designed for restoring the cervical curve and reducing Forward Head Posture.
The results are measurable and long-lasting. The science behind iTrac® is based on 30 years of spinal biophysics research.
iTrac® alters the shape of the spine by remodeling spinal soft tissues. It combines technology and scientific innovation to very slowly and gently push the back of the neck while simultaneously stretching the muscles and ligaments in the front of the neck using a comfortable chin strap. iTrac® therapy is performed with patients positioned in various degrees of cervical extension, which provides exceptional comfort and predictable cervical curve correction. The movement happens so slowly over fractions of a second that the patient won’t even feel it getting stronger.
Similar to Orthodontics, the change happens over a period of time, so the patient doesn’t notice the movement all at once. A computer controls the progression, so the gradual pressure and speed is always the same. This slow stretch changes the length of the ligaments that regulate posture because it controls the shape of the spine.
You comfortably sit in the iTrac® and after 8-12 minutes the “stretching is done! All the data and progression is digital and stored electronically. A series of treatments is required in order to achieve successful outcomes. How many treatments will vary case by case.
Over time, iTrac®, combined with specific movements of the head, neck, and jaw will reestablish the normal curvature, restore normal muscle tone, reduce pressure on spinal discs, and release compressed nerve roots.
