Natural Ways to Cope with Chronic Fatigue in Chattanooga

Fibromyalgia, Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue, Always Tired, Tired, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, CFSChronic fatigue syndrome has new name – systematic exertion intolerance disease. It’s quite a mouthful, but at least it shows that the medical community views it as a real condition as opposed to past views.

What is the primary symptom of chronic fatigue? The answer is post-exertional malaise. Another mouthful, but in layman’s terms, it means that someone’s body reacts more strongly than it should to even small amounts of exertion. For example, a light exercise routine might lead to pain, exhaustion, and cognitive difficulties. You might even get that feeling that you are starting to come down with something.

As a result, a person dealing with chronic fatigue may choose a sedentary lifestyle over triggering the symptoms. Unfortunately, this can just make matters worse since the lack of movement can increase joint pain and cause an early onset of arthritis.

While it may not sound like a good idea at first, light exercise is really important for someone with chronic fatigue. Letting the joints move gently on a regular basis can actually help to reduce pain in the long run. At least, that was the apparent results of a 2014 study where researchers had chronic fatigue patients perform a 20-minute isometric yoga program on a daily basis.

At Scenic City Clinic of Chiropractic, we work to help the body maintain a natural balance through upper cervical chiropractic care. Using the Atlas Orthogonal technique to diagnose and correct misalignments allows the central nervous system to perform optimally. For some, this has a major impact on chronic fatigue symptoms and can even lead to complete resolution.

Don’t confuse upper cervical chiropractic with general chiropractic care. There is no twisting or popping of the spine. Adjustments are gentle and are specifically tailored to the individual patient’s needs. Feel free to call or come in to learn more about how upper cervical care can help patients to cope with the effects of chronic fatigue syndrome.
