Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is one of the most difficult conditions to diagnose and treat for many medical physicians.
As of now, a specific method to diagnose chronic fatigue does not exist, which forces doctors to perform a series of trial tests in order to rule out other conditions first.
This process tends to require a significant amount of time and is often a frustrating experience for a patient who is already suffering.
That’s why the Chiropractors at AICA Conyers are going to discuss the symptoms of CFS and the types of natural treatment solutions patients can take advantage of.
Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Officially, there are eight recognized symptoms associated with chronic fatigue.
These symptoms are:
- Chronic exhaustion or fatigue
- Cognitive concerns, difficulty remembering short-term events
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Sore throat
- Random muscle pain
- Recurring headaches or migraines
- Joint pain accompanied by inflammation
- Exhaustion that lasts more than 24 hours after significant emotional or physical stress
Snellville Chiropractic Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Patients
When the upper neck area becomes misaligned, the results can lead to a number of uncomfortable symptoms, including each of the eight symptoms listed above.
The reason for this is because the C1 and C2 vertebrae are positioned at the base of the skull. Both vertebrae are responsible for maintaining the head upright, while also protecting the brainstem and the tip of the spinal cord.
Misalignments that develop at this point can restrict the flow of vital fluids like blood and cerebrospinal fluid. Pressure is applied to the brainstem, which significantly disrupts the body’s ability to communicate with the brain.
At AICA Snellville, our Chiropractors utilize the Blair technique, which is a specific form of upper cervical care, to provide the best possible outcome for our patients.
