Can Chiropractic Care Really Help Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

Can Chiropractic Care Really Help Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

The short answer is: YES!

Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can include extreme fatigue and exhaustion, unexplained pain, headaches, joint pain, muscle pain, memory loss, trouble sleeping, difficulty concentrating or focusing, sore throat, and enlarged lymph nodes.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is not always understood by health care practitioners.  There is often a variety of factors that that are happening with one’s health that can end up allowing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to develop in a person.  Some of these can include stress, headaches, arthritis, restless leg syndrome, allergies, insomnia, and depression.

How does Chiropractic help treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

Chiropractic adjustments “re-align” the spine and other bones in the body that may be putting pressure on nerves and/or blood flow to all the organs and systems in the body.  Chiropractic adjustments thus help the body restore proper function to affected areas, and allow the body to heal itself.

It is important to remember that the “whole person” needs to be addressed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, as well with as any other health condition.  Your chiropractor may also recommend diet changes, addition of supplements, exercise, stress reduction, emotional release techniques, and better sleep habits.

Many patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome report having less pain, more mobility, better sleep, increased ability to focus, and overall better health with chiropractic care.  Chiropractic is a non-invasive and drug-free alternative for treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome!
