Fatigue and your spine.

Being tired constantly is sometimes a sign of our demanding lives. We tell ourselves that it’s simply part of being an adult. After all, we run from work to soccer practice, cook dinner, run errands, do chores, and we’re constantly up late getting minimal sleep.

But fatigue is something more than just being tired from lack of sleep or being overworked. It affects many aspects of your life, from your work habits to your relationships. You can barely keep your head up when sitting in front of the computer; you get home only to sink into the couch... It feels as though the life is sucked out of you.

How do I know if I have fatigue?

The only real way to describe fatigue is extreme exhaustion that doesn’t go away regardless of how much sleep you get. This makes living your life difficult and affects everything about it, including your relationships. But it doesn’t stop there. It’s likely you’re experiencing a handful of other symptoms associated with chronic fatigue such as headaches and migraines, dizziness, sore and aching muscles, sore throat, muscle weakness, lack of focus, and irritability.

If you feel as though you can fall asleep at any time simply by putting your head down and there isn’t any direct cause, it’s likely you’re dealing with chronic fatigue.

Can fatigue be cured?

Fatigue is actually a symptom of something bigger going on inside of you. And it’s why we need to uncover the root cause. That is the only way to correctly treat fatigue. Traditional medicine will often prescribe you medication that will help you sleep better at night, but medication isn’t going to cure you. This is why we take the time to determine what is causing your fatigue and treat it through a variety of treatments such as spinal manipulation, nutrition, craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, laser therapy, and acupressure.

We’ll take the time to discuss your symptoms, understand your lifestyle, how you handle stress, and learn about your medical history. If necessary, we’ll run a variety of tests so that we can determine what is causing your chronic fatigue and stress.

One common cause of fatigue is a misalignment.

Our spine protects our nervous system, and when our spine becomes misaligned, it puts pressure on the nerves affecting our immune system, digestive system, and our over health. With chiropractic care and spinal adjustments, we can help to realign your spine, improve your immune system, and promote self-healing without invasive treatments or the use of medication. This holistic natural healing process has been used for decades to improve flexibility, improve mobility, reduce inflammation, give you more energy, decrease pain, and improve your health after just a few sessions.

However, an adjustment on its own may not be enough. We focus on you as a whole person in order to heal. Nutrition is a major part of treatment, and incorporating supplements and diet changes will only improve your results.

Chiropractic care offers natural healing by allowing your body to function properly.

Natural healing is achieved through a variety of methods. For years I’ve studied Chinese medicine, nutrition, and chiropractic techniques. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of patients find not only relief but improve their overall health.

Give us a call today, and we’ll help you uncover the root cause of your fatigue so that you can finally feel energized. You deserve to live your best life, and we can help.

Happy Patients

I have had back issues most of my life. Since starting treatments with Dr Greg I have had no more issues. It's such a relief to be able to be physical at the high level I want to be. I am able to maintain wellness by seeing Dr Greg on a regular basis. Thank you Dr Greg!!

Hello! I just want to say that you are truly a healer! After leaving your office last Monday, I was more able to breathe, truly breathe - after having suffered all weekend to take a deep breath due to a "rib out of place" OK - if you say so....all I know is that, though I continued to have a bit of pain in my upper back and neck for a day or two, I could take wonderful, glorious deep breaths thanks to your treatment. Thanks again for all you do! Even if I do make many sound affects while you are treating me - "OUCH!!! Hmmmph!! Ughhh!! Really???" I truly appreciate your healing touch....


I have had Parkinson's Disease for 8 years.  I have developed arthritis in my back and hips. The stiffness of the Parkinson's and the arthritis has caused me a lot of pain. Because of that unrelenting pain I was unable to exercise. Exercise is an important part of pain management for Parkinson's.  Since I have been seeing Dr. Krapf I am feeling much better and his care has allowed me to begin exercising again, which has improved my overall well being. In the past I have been treated by physical therapists and orthopedists. Dr. Krapf's chiropractic manipulations have had an amazing impact on my health and happiness. I highly recommend Dr. Krapf to anyone who needs excellent chiropractic care and the many alternative therapies he offers. I would say he is magical!

When my friend received excellent care from Dr. Krapf, she recommended him to me. I have had gastrointestinal problems for nearly 50 years that have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease with lactose intolerance. All that, including unrelieved stress had made me unhappy and unhealthy. Today I am a different person with the help of Dr. Greg. The Gastro issues are practically nonexistent, my stress levels have plummeted, and my body is changing. I am so grateful for Dr. Greg and his healing hands.

Our family have been patients of Krapf chiropractic for a few decades. We have several success stories archived. The most recent event involves our youngest son who is completing his senior year of high school. He has been a patient of Krapf Chiropractic (KCA) since birth. He has been an avid soccer player since the age of four and has sustained numerous injuries over the years. Dr. Krapf has successfully assisted in every recovery.

Most recently, he began complaining of his feet hurting while playing soccer. Both feet hurt - particularly the balls of his feet while running and cutting. He came to Dr. Greg with his complaint as this was seriously affecting his game. Dr. Greg evaluated the situation and decided a foot scan should be done. The finding was dropped arches. My son was fitted for orthotics. They arrived within days and he wore these as directed. Within a few short weeks he is now playing full games pain free.


I first called Krapf Chiropractic when my back was so bad that I couldn't get up off the floor. It's been a blessing to have Dr. Greg help me with my overall wellness and health! I find this to be a place where you are not a number and everyone cares. Mollie is always cheerful and reminds me to come. Erin is always smiling and helps relax me when I'm in pain. I would not be functioning if I did not have Krapf Chiropractic to keep me going. As I get older my appreciation deepens, especially when I see people around me who are suffering with back problems. If they only knew how helpful this is. I believe Dr. Greg treats the person not the symptoms. Thank you

I've been lucky to have exceptional health care from the beginning. At the beginning, seventy-six-plus years ago, Hugh Rodgers brought me into the world in mother and dad's second-floor bedroom in our dairy farm home. Hugh's son, Hugh, Jr., practiced with his dad and beyond caring for my parents, he, also, cared for hundreds of others and me. Roughly forty years ago, a friend suggested I make an appointment with Richard Krapf for help with back-pain. Richard treated the pain that, often, was debilitating, and on Richard's death, his son, Greg became the second second generation to help me from one place to another. I'm grateful to Hugh, Hugh, Richard and, perhaps, most of all, to Greg.
