What is chronic fatigue?
Chronic fatigue is a symptom that is not as straightforward as other illnesses. The symptoms can often mimic other conditions, including some that are quite serious, so they must all be ruled out before a care plan can be determined.
This is usually not a quick process so by the time a patient figures out what they are experiencing, they are usually exhausted both physically and emotionally.
Chronic fatigue is characterized by profound tiredness, regardless of bed rest. Symptoms may even worsen with physical or mental activity. This can happen suddenly and last for years. This condition typically affects more females than males.
So how can Chiropractic care help? Chiropractors use spinal adjustments to treat patients, helping with many of the symptoms that are associated with the condition without invasive treatments or medication.
Here are some common symptoms
- Sensitivity to light
- Tender lymph nodes
- Fatigue and weakness
- Muscle and joint pain
- Inability to concentrate
- Mood swings
- Low-grade fever
