Our bodies have a built-in defense mechanism that activates when it perceives a threat. The body will do whatever it can to protect itself. When central sensitization is present, the body will go into overdrive to protect itself, whether there really is a threat or not. The body becomes hypersensitive. This is a reaction to the environment and carries with it the following conditions:
Proper communication between the brain and body is extremely vital to your health. If you happen to have even a tiny misalignment of the upper cervical vertebrae, it can put pressure on the spinal column. This pressure hinders blood flow and oxygen to the brain, thereby sending improper signals about pain sensitivity. Here at Advanced Spinal Care Upper in Redwood City, California, we have been trained specifically to find this sort of misalignment.
If you suffer from central sensitization, we strongly encourage you to schedule a consultation with us to see how an adjustment to your upper cervical area will help you. After the initial consultation, we can work together to create a treatment plan specific to your needs. When a misalignment is corrected, proper function of the body is restored, and the healing process begins.
