If you are constantly feeling tired, sore, run-down and under-slept, you may be suffering from a hard-to-diagnose condition known as chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS. This odd syndrome, which is especially common in middle-aged individuals, can seriously interfere with your health, your productivity and your ability to enjoy life. But believe it or not, you can get relief through natural, non-pharmaceutical methods. Here at Back to Health Center, your chiropractors in Alexandria (Dr. Posner, Dr. Tamsett or Dr. Hudgins) can implement chiropractic care as a form of chronic fatigue treatment.
Chronic fatigue syndrome can appear out of the blue one day to upset your world for no apparent reason at all. True to its name, the prevailing symptom is a feeling of constant fatigue or tiredness, which may get noticeably worse after you've physically or mentally exerted yourself. But the other symptoms can be just as bothersome. These may include sore throat, swollen glands, allergic reactions, chemical sensitivities, headaches and muscle aches. Cognitive symptoms such as drowsiness, "brain fog" and short-term memory problems can prove equally debilitating.
To add insult to injury, traditional medical science is often stumped when it comes to chronic fatigue treatment. The fact that many of the symptoms are duplicated by Epstein-Barr syndrome, respiratory infections, rheumatoid arthritis, anemia and other disorders only complicates things. Worst of all, your doctor may insist that you live with your misery for 6 months so that you can officially be diagnosed with a chronic disease. In the meantime you're stuck with taking medicines that provide temporary relief for this or that symptom.
Chiropractic care at Back to Health Center can succeed with CFS where traditional medical protocols often fail. First of all, our chiropractors in Alexandria aren’t constrained by any 6-month "waiting period" to see whether your condition is chronic -- we can begin helping you right away, beginning with a thorough examination to rule out other possible disorders. A spinal screening is a critical part of our evaluation. Many of the problems related to CFS, such as immune dysfunction, hormonal imbalances and muscular aches and pains, can be caused by a longstanding misalignment of the upper cervical spine. If we notice a misalignment in this area, chiropractic care in the form of small, precise manipulations may produce significant improvements.
Fixing one CFS symptom can help relieve others. For example, if you suffer from insomnia that adds to your fatigue, reducing your muscular aches and pains may allow you to sleep better -- which in turn promotes better hormonal and immune-system function. For that reason we often supplement our chiropractic care with other natural techniques such as massage therapy, nutritional therapy, physical therapy and other supportive wellness measures.
