Upper cervical care in Redwood City has gained popularity among patients because of the great results it brings for people with chronic fatigue syndrome.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a condition that causes extreme exhaustion heightened by physical and mental activities. For no reason, the body experiences constant fatigue that no amount of rest or sleep can ease.
It is often mistaken as fibromyalgia as the two disorders share some similarities. Even doctors themselves often make a misdiagnosis, inaccurately identifying one condition as the other. Although they have resemblances, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia are not one and the same.
At the moment, no single test can deny nor confirm the existence of chronic fatigue syndrome. Hence, doctors have to rule out other disorders with similar traits through different examinations before they give a final diagnosis.
The list of symptoms below is the basis for the doctors when they come up with a diagnosis. Patients should experience or have at least four of the criteria below during a six-month period.
On the other hand, those in their childhood or teenage years can get a chronic fatigue diagnosis if they have the symptoms for at least three months.
Several studies have linked chronic fatigue to changes in cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone that regulates the immune functions in the body. Researchers found that cortisol is low in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Unknown by many, low cortisol levels can be due to a misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae, which disrupts the overall function of the central nervous system.
Here at Advanced Spinal Care in Redwood City, California, I use a gentle yet precise method to realign the misalignments in the upper neck bones of my patients. This can help in the reduction or elimination of their symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. Send us a message to learn more about how upper cervical care in Redwood City can help you.
