Los Angeles Chronic Fatigue, Blair Upper Cervical Care
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) can be as difficult for a general practitioner to diagnose as it is to treat. Since there is no specific test for chronic fatigue, other conditions need to be ruled out first. This can be a long and difficult process for a person who is already suffering. That’s why I’m going to talk today about the symptoms of CFS and a natural treatment option that does not involve medication.
What Are the Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Officially, there are 8 specific symptoms of chronic fatigue. These are:
- Persistent fatigue
- Cognitive issues (concentration and memory)
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Sore throat
- Muscle pain with no explanation
- New headache pattern
- Joint pain accompanied by swelling
- Exhaustion that lasts more than a day after mental or physical exertion
Upper Cervical Chiropractic for Chronic Fatigue Sufferers
When the upper neck is misaligned, the results can be varying symptoms, including all 8 listed above. This is because the C1 and C2 vertebrae are positioned at the base of the skull. They hold the head upright but also protect the brainstem and top of the spinal cord.
A misalignment here can restrict the flow of vital fluids like blood and cerebrospinal fluid. Plus, pressure can be placed on the brainstem thereby affecting brain-body communication.
To see a real-life example of someone who had the symptoms of chronic fatigue alleviated by upper cervical chiropractic care, I encourage you to watch this brief testimonial video.
At Upper Cervical Health Centers of America in Carson and Los Angeles, we use the Blair technique, a specific form of upper cervical care, to provide the best possible results for our patients.
Whether you have exhausted all of your other treatment options or just want to start with a natural option first, I encourage you to schedule a consult today.
