iTrac for Headaches and Neck Pain

If you are suffering from constant headaches and neck pain, it’s possible that you have lost the natural curve in your neck. A “straight neck” can be caused by a sedentary lifestyle, hunching over devices, a car accident or the normal process of aging. Dr. Alajajian and staff are proud to be the only chiropractic clinic in the Glendale area to offer spine remodeling with iTrac, a new technology that restores the neck curve.


The loss of neck curvature can cause numerous other health problems as well. Pressure is put on other areas of the spine due to neck straightening, which increases the risk of degenerated discs. Research has also shown that the straightening of the neck and spine can affect blood flow to the brain.


Dr. Alajajian and staff use iTrac in three simple steps:




First, we slowly stretch the muscles and ligaments in the front of your neck.


Stretching occurs during each treatment over a prescribed amount of time.


Eventually, the soft tissues begin to lengthen, restoring the natur…

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Many pregnant women experience aches and pains in the lower back and hips as a fetus continues to grow. It begs the question, how does a mother find relief? There are safe, natural remedies to combat pregnancy discomfort, and one option is seeing a chiropractor. According to the American Pregnancy Association, “There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. All chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant.” Dr. Alajajian and staff are dedicated to safely alleviating pain associated with pregnancy.


Chiropractic care alleviates some of the pain associated with the fetus growing heavier, such as a misaligned spine or protruding abdomen. In fact, a pelvis that is out of alignment can restrict the amount of space the fetus has to develop, which in turn can lead to birth defects. It also lowers the chances of a complicated delivery.


Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy has other benefits as well:




Controlling symptoms of nausea


Reducing lab…
