Chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating disease that can rob a person of his or her quality of life. It is the feeling of being totally exhausted all the time. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to increase their energy levels. Maybe sleep is the answer? Even after eight hours of sleep, it is difficult to get up and go.
However, when they do wake up, they feel just as tired and worn out as when they went to sleep. In fact, they may be so exhausted that even the thought of bathing or showering is too much for them. They feel like they are walking through sand all day long. They may even be too exhausted to cut their food in order to eat it. Their arms and legs feel like they are tied down. Holding a book to read can be too strenuous.
What about exercise? That always seems to help a person feel better. Well, not in this case. Whether it is physical or mental exercise, it leaves them feeling totally sapped of energy. Is there anything that can be done?
How an Upper Cervical Chiropractor May Be Able to Help
Upper cervical chiropractic care may be the answer you’ve been looking for. A study involved patients that were suffering from chronic fatigue symptoms and were being given adjustments by upper cervical chiropractors. The results? There was a great improvement in the quality of life and a definite decrease in symptoms for them. How is this possible?
The upper cervical spine is found at the brainstem. The brainstem is part of the central nervous system. This is what sends signals to the brain as to how the body is functioning. If there is a misalignment found in the vertebrae in this area, undue pressure can be put on the brainstem. This causes the nervous system to send improper signals about what is really happening in the body. In turn, this leads to an increase of fatigue.
Dr. Pete Tsiglieris of Redwood City, California is an upper cervical chiropractor who is specifically trained in how to correct misalignmetns of the bones in the upper cervical spine. Once this is done, healing can begin, and normal function of the nervous system can be restored.
