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.
