Chronic Fatigue

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Are you always tired, even when you get plenty of sleep? Do you get exhausted quickly with any physical or mental activity? Trouble concentrating? Depressed? You may be suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

CFS is a condition that can come on suddenly and last for years. It is much more common in women than men and usually affects people in their middle age, but people of any age can get it. The main symptom is constant tiredness. Many who suffer say the condition feels as if they have constant flu.

 

Other symptoms may include:

  • Headache
  • Light sensitivity.
  • Swollen lymph nodes.
  • Muscle pain.
  • Joint pain.
  • Mood swings.
  • Confusion.

 

No one knows why CFS occurs, but there is a potential connection between blood flow to the brain and the nerve communication between the brain and the body. At Atlas, we work specifically with the top bone of the spine, called the atlas. All of the blood vessels and nerves originating from the brain, pass through the atlas.

 

If the atlas is out of position, it can decrease blood flow to the brain and disrupt the nerve signals to the body. This can cause all of the symptoms of CFS.

 

When you arrive for your Atlas appointment, we will perform a consultation and examination to determine if your atlas is out of position. If we determine it to be out of position, we will take a specific set of X-rays and then run the information through spinal engineering software. This tells us how far your atlas is out of it’s proper position, with accuracy down to the millimeter, and exactly what we need to do to correct it.  

 

We will then perform a painless sound wave-based adjustment that will put your atlas back in place. This should restore full blood flow to the brain and relieve pressure on the nerves, allowing them to function correctly.
