Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an elusive devastating illness that still is little understood. Its cause and cure are multi-faceted and a multi-disciplinary treatment protocol to recover. In this article, we have embedded a recently cut video that helps explain how the upper cervical spine can be one of the keys to overcoming Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Most people with chronic fatigue syndrome go through treatment protocols that fix leaky gut syndrome, implement diet modification, IV vitamin therapy, juicing, and other natural health procedures that are aimed at ridding the body of viruses and supplying it with the raw materials that are needed for healing.
Each of these procedures has been helpful for a large majority of CFS sufferers. Most people with CFS are unaware of a natural healing procedure called Upper Cervical Chiropractic.
The central nervous system controls and regulates all body systems and therefore it is essential that it is functioning at its optimum. Often times chronic health problems can have their roots in spinal cord interference resulting from injuries to the neck.
Trauma can cause the top vertebrae (atlas) in the neck to misalign and cause interference to the central nervous system. This weakens the health of the body and makes it more susceptible to illness.
Upper Cervical practitioners hypothesize based on their success in addressing many health conditions that the misalignment of the atlas is blocking communication to various parts of the body and thereby affecting the body’s own ability to correct the problem. “

Upper Cervical Care is a burgeoning area of health care whose goal is to locate and correct the c-1 and c-2(Fig.1) misalignment of the Upper Cervical spine. These two bones can become locked out of their normal joint position causing irritation and interference to the central nervous system.
Upper Cervical doctors run an objective neurological test that determines whether there is an upper neck vertebra that is structurally locked and irritating the central nerve system. Once located precise uppermost cervical X-rays are taken to ascertain what direction the vertebrae has misaligned.
Also, the angle of the offending joint can be measured and the magnitude of the misalignment can be measured. Once this information is gathered a precise, gentle correction is made with no twisting, popping, or pulling.
The correction is designed to free up the locked vertebrae so the irritation to the central nervous system can be cleared. Then the goal is for the correction to stay in its proper position for as long as possible. While the “correction holds” healing happens.
Normal postural tone returns as the joints in the neck move more freely and proper tone returns to the body. Upper Cervical care is a procedure that should be utilized by everyone over the term of their life to ensure the proper neurological function is occurring.
