Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

To find out if you suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is not a simple task. Medically, the diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome often involves several tests to rule out other similar disorders like Ebstein Barr, anemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and several other fatigue causing conditions.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is usually only diagnosed by the absence of these other disorders.

Chiropractors have treated many patients who present with this condition. Many times, a patient will seek out a chiropractic alternative when the exhaustive trips for medical testing seem to lead nowhere or your doctor concludes you simply have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Although chiropractors do not know the cause of this ailment either, the Chiropractic approach to helping the body to help itself is often a welcome and winning approach to helping those who suffer from this condition.

Some chiropractors have seen patients with this condition improve after upper cervical adjustments. This is the area in your neck that is about an inch or less below where your head and neck come together. It is believed that long term irritation to the nerves associated with the upper cervical spine may create several of the elements found in Chronic fatigue Syndrome such as an imbalance in the immune system, chronic muscle stress, and organ and glandular imbalances.

Chiropractic care also helps improve your response to this disorder through improving the oxygen exchange in your tissues. Therapies like massage treatments, acupressure, and exercise therapy, are often utilized in chiropractic offices. Creating a good diet is also another essential measure in ridding the body of fatigue and supplying it with energy. Your Doctor of Chiropractic can talk with you to discuss your particular nutritional needs.
