Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) sufferers may be put through the wringer just to get a diagnosis. Some many conditions present with fatigue and other CFS symptoms that many tests need to be run to rule out other conditions before a diagnosis can be made. In Australia, research is being done to try and stop this process of elimination by identifying blood markers that would reduce getting a diagnosis to having a simple blood test done.
The fact is that the medical field is mystified by conditions like chronic fatigue. An easier way to get a diagnosis would still be met with disappointing treatment options. Medications only cover certain common symptoms and lifestyle changes such as stress reduction and moderate exercise can only go so far, especially when the condition is working against achieving those goals.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Helps Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Sufferers
When the upper cervical spine is misaligned, it can cause a host of problems. For example:
- Brainstem function may be reduced because the misalignment puts pressure on the brainstem or spinal cord.
- Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) may fail to drain properly. This can cause an increase in intracranial pressure as CSF pools.
- Blood flow to the brain may be inhibited. The vertebral arteries bring vital oxygen supplies to the brain. Misaligned vertebrae can restrict these arteries from doing their job properly.
You can imagine how these factors can affect fatigue, sleep, pain levels, headaches, and other chronic fatigue symptoms.
At Advanced Spinal Washington, we specialize in one thing—finding and correcting upper cervical misalignments. We do this using the NUCCA technique which involves specific x-rays that help to identify the degree and angle of misalignment. Then we can calculate the exact angle needed to adjust the bones with a low force correction.
Case studies have revealed that chronic fatigue patients experience a great quality of life following upper cervical chiropractic care. Contact us today, and schedule a consult to see if this is the right way to deal with your chronic fatigue.
