Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) can negatively affect one’s mental health, as well as quality of life. There are very few ways to care for this condition and those that do exist simply work on individual symptoms rather than finding the underlying cause.
What’s the Cause of Chronic Fatigue?
Chronic fatigue remains a mystery among doctors and scientist alike. They cannot agree on what causes it to occur and what will work best to help alleviate it. Doctors find it nearly impossible to correctly diagnose the condition and help their patients cope with the devastating effects. Primary care physicians generally will offer CFS patients sleeping pills and antidepressants to help them cope. While this may provide some semblance of relief, it does not prevent the condition from continuing.
Recent Research Provides Insight on CFS
Healthline published an article in 2015 about a study that showed some interesting information dealing with those who have chronic fatigue. It revealed that people suffering from this condition have either too many or too few immune proteins in their spinal fluid. These immune molecules are called cytokines and have also been found in people suffering from multiple sclerosis. Scientists are beginning to conclude that chronic fatigue syndrome is a biological illness with both neurological and physical symptoms. If fact, they think it may be an autoimmune disorder.

Providing Answers for Those with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
In order for the body to work at its optimum, the central nervous system has to be functioning properly. Upper cervical chiropractors have seen a connection between a misalignment in the bones of the upper neck and malfunction of the brainstem. A misalignment in either the C1 or C2 vertebra can put pressure on the brainstem, hindering communication between the brain and the body. When this is occurring, the nervous system does not work properly, and this may lead to all kinds of health issues, such as chronic fatigue.
Here at our Rochester Hills, Michigan office, we use a gentle method to help realign these bones. Our chronic fatigue syndrome patients often see positive results after a few visits.
