Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Gets Natural Treatment in Delray Beach, FL

Chronic fatigue syndrome suffers and those afflicted with associated conditions that can have a devastating impact of quality of life and mental health, may have a new hope.

Chronic fatigue syndrome can manifest itself in a variety of ways. The most common symptom is fatigue that isn’t remedied by rest and is in fact made worse by any kind of mental or physical activity. Associated symptoms include pain in the muscles, poor concentration and memory, and general weakness.

Although the exact cause is unknown, it’s thought that chronic fatigue, as well as other conditions such as epilepsy and depression, may be associated with trauma to head, which inhibits the body’s ability to regulate pressure in the brain.

One study in particular examined brain perfusion (a measure to evaluate blood flow to the brain). It found that people with chronic fatigue syndrome had reduced brain perfusion.

The research revealed that the patients with chronic fatigue syndrome had significant and consistently reduced brain perfusion at the brainstem compared to 24 control patients.

Many doctors now believe that upper cervical chiropractic treatments can offer help to these patients. At Schrier Family Chiropractic, we use a technique known as NUCCA, which allows us to remove the pressure on the brainstem of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and, therefore, reduce symptoms.

Using the NUCCA technique, we can precisely and accurately study the alignment of the cervical spine. If a misalignment is detected, then pressure is being placed on the brainstem which could be contributing to the symptoms present. When pressure in the brainstem is relieved, typically in a short amount of time patients who previously suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome begin to see improvements in their key symptoms. The treatment may also help alleviate insomnia and sleep problems, enabling patients to become more active in their daily lives.
