Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are health conditions that can leave someone feeling despondent at the time of diagnosis. One may feel that he or she is now subject to a lifetime of pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and cognitive issues with very little in the way of options. What are the common treatments for these conditions and is there a natural solution worth paying attention to?
Common Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
In general, a primary care practitioner will reach for the prescription pad when a diagnosis of chronic fatigue is made. The types of prescriptions provided could include sleeping pills to deal with the insomnia that often results, antidepressants since depression is commonly associated with chronic illness, and other medications designed to relieve pain.
Unfortunately, the results provided by medications are often limited. At best, they are temporary fixes for some of a person’s symptoms. At worst, they provide little to no benefit and come with a host of side effects.
Outside the range of pharmaceuticals, doctors may recommend dietary changes or various forms of psychological care. If you are looking for a natural way to deal with a chronic illness, I would like to introduce you to upper cervical chiropractic care.

The C1 and C2 vertebrae are positioned at the base of the skull where the brainstem meets the spinal cord. Even a slight misalignment here can throw the central nervous system into disarray. However, by means of a gentle and specific adjustment, an upper cervical chiropractor can correct such a misalignment. This gives the body time to heal tissue and nerve damage. It may even restore things such as proper blood flow to the brain or cerebrospinal fluid drainage.
As a result, patients often find that upper cervical care helps to relieve many of the symptoms associated with chronic illness. Come see us at Upper Cervical Hawaii to learn more about what upper cervical chiropractic can do for you.
