Patients who suffer from spinal cord disorders are prone to suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) which results in a state of continuous exhaustion that cannot be curbed by whatever the amount of bed rest.
This type of disorder was dismissed for a long time by the medic practitioners as it did not show any test after being diagnosed. As the old adage says, who feels it knows it, the people who suffered this condition could tell that this was a serious disorder. As much as this syndrome may not be diagnosed, there are some notable symptoms that include;
- Feeling exhausted both mentally and physically.
- You suffer from a headache and pain in your joints and muscles.
- There is difficulty in concentration as well as thinking.
- To some patients, there may be a lot of sweating during the night, they are quite sensitive to light and their muscles are really weak.
A number of patients have wasted their time and money trying different medical systems. However, CFS can only be approved by a medic if these symptoms have been there for at least 6 months. Instead of waiting and suffering for six months, you can receive great care from a highly experienced chiropractor that is a specialist of the spinal cord disorders as well as the general nervous system and they fully understand any kind of neurological dysfunction as it begins from the spinal cord.
Basically, chiropractic care does not involve any kind of medication. It is the alignment of the spine with gentle adjustments. Chiropractors correct any underlying cause of the chronic fatigue syndrome thus reopening the energy pathways within the nervous system.
Overcoming the chiropractic fatigue system:
When one suffers from this syndrome, they feel that their quality of life has been undermined and they have a fear of feeling helpless. This is so if this syndrome goes for more than two years. One of the advice that you may receive from a chiropractor is the change of your lifestyle and improvement in your nutrition, that is if it is applicable. According to your situation, you will be customized to a program of light exercise. These exercises are important as they help in increasing your levels of energy. In order to take charge of your health and as well as gaining a sense of control, you need to do the following:
- Watch your nutrition
- Practice techniques of reducing and managing stress.
- Get adequate sleep, and
- Go for regular check-ups from your chiropractor.
The above steps may seem to be minor but they go a long way in ensuring that your spine and nervous system are in the best health possible.
