Chronic Fatigue – What the New Name Means for Those Suffering

Doctors, researchers, and patients finally came to an agreement in February of 2015 on a new name for chronic fatigue syndrome. The Institute of Medicine announced this new name as systemic exertion intolerance disease. This points to the fact that a person suffering from this condition has a depletion of energy after even a small amount of activity.

Dr. Peter Rowe, a member of the panel, feels that the new name does a better job of describing the main features of the disease, such as the inability to endure in physical and cognitive activities.

So, this means that the illness may now be clearer for many to understand making it easier to diagnose. However, it does not change the fact that many are still suffering from the following symptoms.

While a new name change may help in some areas, what can be done to help those that are suffering from this illness? An area that has seen success in helping their patients to get relief is that of upper cervical chiropractic care. Treating symptoms is not a long-lasting solution; however, looking for the root cause of the problem can be. Many times a misalignment in the upper neck is to blame.

An upper cervical misalignment leads to complications in communication between the brain and the body. The misalignment could have occurred during a fall, accident, or some other injury that did damage to the neck or head. Symptoms can appear immediately or many months, even years, later. Once the misalignment is corrected, many individuals have seen an improvement in their symptoms. Regardless of what the illness is actually called, less pain and more energy are something to be celebrated!
