Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) creates the type of fatigue that doesn’t relent, even with plenty of rest. Aside from this crippling fatigue, CFS sufferers also experience muscle or joint pain, impairments in memory or concentration, insomnia, and symptoms that become much worse after physical exertion.
Part of what makes CFS so difficult to navigate is its complexity. There are still a lot of unknowns regarding the condition, including how to diagnose it and what exactly causes it. Some possibilities of the origins of CFS include:
- Nutritional deficiency
There Is Hope with Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
One thing to understand about chronic fatigue syndrome is that it involves many systems of the body. One thing that upper cervical chiropractic care acknowledges is that there is one system that controls all the others, and that’s the central nervous system. Without a properly functioning central nervous system, the rest of the body is not able to work as optimally as it is designed to. This can lead to weakened immunity, poor sleep, pain, and even cognitive impairments.
We address issues with normal nervous system function by looking at a particular area of the spine that can be having a detrimental effect. The atlas vertebra, which sits at the very top of the neck, protects the brainstem. The brainstem plays a large part in many of the body’s critical, life-sustaining functions.
A misalignment of the atlas can irritate the brainstem, and cause the signals that are constantly being sent between the brain and body to be distorted. This can lead to many health conditions, including chronic fatigue syndrome. At Advanced Spinal Washington, we focus on restoring atlas alignment so that the body can heal from chronic health conditions naturally.
