Jayne Barrie
Certified Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy Technician
This therapy is a gentle and non-invasive treatment for chronic back and neck pain caused by bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and sciatica. Over a course of treatment, the stretch and release protocols of the decompression procedure create negative pressure in the disc. This vacuum effect helps to take pressure off the nerves, which in turn may aid the healing process, reduce inflammation and result in pain relief.
