Understanding Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome has been shrouded for decades in confusion and improper care. Patients have suffered unnecessarily for years with doctors assuming the symptoms were “all in their heads” and not an actual physical condition. But your symptoms are real and there is hope for addressing them.

As the name denotes, CFS is a condition marked by extreme fatigue. People with this condition do not feel energized, no matter how much sleep or rest they get. Joint and muscle pain can also be a part of the condition, as well as feelings of muscle weakness, dizziness, and headaches. But CFS is not just a physical condition, there are also cognitive and emotional symptoms as well, including forgetfulness, the inability to concentrate, and feelings of anxiety.

Part of the reason why patients have struggled with receiving care is the fact that no diagnostic test exists for CFS. Because of this, patients are left to describe their symptoms, which can be similar to those of other conditions like Epstein-Barr and chronic depression.

What role does the nervous system play in CFS

The underlying causes of CFS remain a mystery to the healthcare community. Today however we do understand that the immune system plays a role in its occurrence and supporting a healthy immune system can reduce the severity and frequency of symptoms. For instance, some people may experience CFS after having suffered from an infection, which impacts the immune system.

Since all of the systems in the body are interconnected and affect the health and balance of each other, making improvements to the balance of the nervous system can help support a healthier immune system. Why, you might ask? Because when the nervous system is out of balance, it can send messages of irritation throughout the body and signal inflammation to occur in the body. This places a strain on the immune system, which can trigger more severe symptoms of CFS.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Understanding the connection between the nervous system (including the spinal column), the immune system, and chronic fatigue syndrome, you can see where a holistic (whole body) approach is necessary.

Chiropractic adjustments focus on improving the spinal alignment, addressing any misalignments which can cause the nervous system to send the wrong messages to the rest of the body. This helps to improve the function of the immune system and prevent the body from being in a stressed state of inflammation. This will also help restore energy, which is no longer being wasted on these stressors.

What Benefits Can You Expect from Chiropractic Care for CFS

Everyone’s body is different, so it’s impossible to predict how your body will specifically respond based on your unique condition and its severity. However, chiropractic care has scientific evidence to support its therapies and you can expect to feel relief from your symptoms. Unlike conventional medicine, which currently has no cure for CFS, only medications that mask the symptoms, chiropractic focuses on correcting the underlying misalignments causing the CFS symptoms.

Patients with CFS who have received chiropractic care have reported:

  • Improvements in energy levels
  • Better sleep quality
  • Decreased pain
  • Enhanced mobility and reduced joint discomfort
  • Greater concentration and improved mood

They understand the spine and nervous system and take a holistic approach that doesn’t rely on invasive techniques or drugs which can carry potentially negative side effects.
