Are you feeling excessively tired lately? When you are running errands and trying to make ends meet every day, it is quite normal to feel exhausted and tired. But some people feel tired and exhausted all the time — this is referred to as chronic fatigue syndrome. Have you ever heard of it or experienced it?
Chronic fatigue syndrome is basically a body condition but not an illness. The symptoms that indicate chronic fatigue syndrome are quite common and can be misunderstood as other illnesses. There are no direct symptoms of the condition and thus the patient or an individual who is suffering from it usually does not understand and keeps dealing with it for a long period (or until it becomes serious). By the time the condition of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is detected, the person is already exhausted not just physically but also mentally and emotionally.
According to research, it has been observed that the CFS condition is more prevalent in women as compared to men. This condition can happen to anyone, but it has been reported more among people in the age group of 40 to 50 who are more prone to it.
What are the common symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome that could easily indicate the condition?
- Feeling extreme fatigue
- Experiencing memory loss
- Musculoskeletal pain that is usually unexplained
- Unable to focus on work and lack of concentration
- Pain and discomfort in the joints which is also accompanied by swelling and redness
- An enlargement in the lymph nodes of the body, especially around the armpits and neck
- Consistent headache that is not resolved even after consuming medications
- Sleep is unrefreshing — you still feel tired and exhausted
- Suffering from a consistent sore throat
The symptoms of CFS are such that they will hinder the normal functioning of your body and do not let you perform your routine work in an efficient way. Chiropractic treatment is one of the best, safest, and most effective treatment options for treating chronic fatigue syndrome.
Chiropractic treatment is non-invasive and does not involve any sort of medicine or drugs. Chiropractors make use of spinal adjustments and various manipulative techniques that will help in making positive changes in all aspects of your life.
Individuals who are suffering from CFS typically need multiple sessions of manipulative and adjustment activities, and supplements including Omega 3s may be recommended.
Typically, chiropractors perform manipulative activities on the neck and all along the spine in order to relieve tension from a person’s muscles. These manipulative therapies boost the functioning of the nerves and make a person feel more positive and energetic.
