Chiropractic Can Help Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

There are holistic therapies that help CFS symptoms. One of them is chiropractic.

Chiropractic treatment does not cure disease; it restores alignment and balance to the spine. This supports your bodies inherit healing systems. The treatments realign the spine to its proper position. When the spine is aligned properly, the nerves and muscles get more blood flow. The nerves are not pinched so they do not give pain. The nerves are connected to the spine, which feed the different parts of the body. Your whole body feels better when the blood flow and alignment is properly restored. When the nerves are blocked or constricted, this lack of blood flow can cause pain and disease. Nerve flow feeds muscles, tendons, and organ systems.

Upper cervical adjustments have proven to be one of the most successful with CFS patients. This particular adjustment corrects the upper two vertebrae of the spine, the atlas or C1 and the axis or C2. When these two vertebrae are corrected with spinal manipulation, it helps with symptoms such as pain, migraines, ADD, TMJ, trigeminal neuralgia, and other symptoms.
