Patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or CFS, find themselves in a state of continuous and oftentimes debilitating fatigue that no amount of bed rest can alleviate. Due to the lack of “real” medical visible signs upon examination, CFS has, until recently, been readily dismissed as a true “medical” condition by the medical community.However, if you suffer from this chronic, oftentimes debilitating condition, you know
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is for real!
Chronic Fatigue Symptoms
Though it varies from person to person, the most common symptoms of CFS are:
- Physical and mental exhaustion
- Sore throat and swollen lymph nodes
- Difficulty thinking and maintaining concentration
- Aching muscles and joints
- Malaise after any kind of exertion
- Other individualized symptoms include muscle weakness, night sweats, and sensitivity to light.
- Vertebral Subluxation – The Cause?
Your nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord, and a dense series of nerves that go out to all parts of your body. Your nervous system is responsible for providing the energy necessary for life in the body to exist and function properly.
Nerve Impulse = No Life. Reduced Nerve Impulse = Reduced Health.
The purpose of the spinal column is to house and protect your spinal cord and spinal nerves. When a vertebrae becomes misaligned with the one above and below, it causes a pinching of a nerve impeding the normal, natural, electrical and chemical impulses that are carried by the spinal cord and nerves. This reduced energy blockage, in time, results in both physical and mental fatigue. This condition is known as vertebral subluxation.
Ptak Chiropractic Care Alleviates Chronic Fatigue
Studies reveal that many CFS sufferers waste valuable time, in many cases years, in medical offices without significant benefit. To be medically diagnosed with CFS, a patient must exhibit symptoms for at least six months. During this critical time, the condition becomes deeply embedded into the body and nervous system, where all things are remembered. At this point, medication is prescribed, serving only to mask the symptoms as there is actually no medical treatment for the underlying cause of CFS.
