Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment Via Natural And Alternative Methods
What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Chronic fatigue syndrome is a poorly understood condition characterized by persistent mental tiredness and extreme physical fatigue. Unlike generalized fatigue, the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome will not improve given additional rest. While chronic fatigue syndrome can affect anyone, it is most common amongst women aged between 40 and 50 years old.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Signs and Symptoms
Although researchers are still investigating the causes of chronic fatigue syndrome, the general medical consensus has linked the onset of the condition to viral infections, weak immune system responses, chronic stress, and imbalanced hormone production. Other risk factors for chronic fatigue syndrome include genetic predispositions, allergic responses, and environmental stressors.
Broadly speaking, the primary symptom of chronic fatigue syndrome is a feeling of extreme fatigue which significantly impairs your capacity to complete basic tasks. Sleep disorders like insomnia are also common amongst individuals suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. From a physical perspective, chronic fatigue syndrome often causes joint pain, muscle soreness, swollen lymph nodes, and more frequent headaches.
How the Upper Cervical Spine Affects Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
The upper cervical spine plays a crucial role in stabilizing the musculature and vasculature surrounding the central nervous system (CNS). When there is a vertebral misalignment in the upper cervical spine, the ensuing inflammation and signal disruption around the CNS can drive a range of adverse autoimmune reactions, impairing the body’s natural ability to respond to key triggers for chronic fatigue syndrome, such as viruses or hormonal imbalances.
How Our Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment Works
Here at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Las Vegas, we focus on treating both the symptoms and underlying causes of chronic fatigue syndrome. This treatment begins with an introductory consultation alongside Dr. Kramer, a veteran chiropractor and trained practitioner of the Blair Upper Cervical Technique. During this consultation, Dr. Kramer will use digital X-rays or cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans to analyze and locate any trauma-induced misalignments in your upper cervical spine.
Once he has established the precise location and angulation of these misalignments, Dr. Kramer will begin a series of painless, non-surgical adjustments in order to reduce pressure around the CNS. By removing the primary drivers of CNS inflammation, we hope to restore full functionality to the body’s immune system, thereby minimizing or even eliminating the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.
If you suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, we provide treatment for patients across Las Vegas and the wider area, including both Clark County and neighboring states like California, Arizona, and Utah.
