Chronic fatigue syndrome is a complicated disorder. The cause remains poorly understood even though there are many theories, and the extreme fatigue that people experience is not relieved with rest. There is no single test that can be used to confirm the diagnosis. In fact, a variety of medical tests are usually necessary in order to simply rule out other conditions that may be to blame for the extreme fatigue, lack of energy, loss of memory, enlarged lymph nodes, and muscle pain.
In the news recently is a follow-up to a 2011 study that purported that chronic fatigue syndrome may not be chronic at all and that, through exercise and having a positive mental attitude, a person can “beat the symptoms”. This study drew a lot of controversy, especially from chronic fatigue sufferers whose symptoms were certainly not all “in their heads” as the study might suggest.

In Honolulu, Dr. Joe Breuwet specializes in locating the root cause of chronic fatigue syndrome and works with his patients to recover their quality of life. In many instances when symptoms are seemingly unexplainable, there is often a blockage in the communication between the brain and the body via the central nervous system. As an upper cervical specific chiropractor, Dr. Breuwet looks for those obstructions, particularly at the top of the neck at the C1 and C2 vertebrae. When misaligned, these two vertebrae can put stress and strain on the brainstem, which is responsible for many of the automatic functions of our bodies. Brainstem pressure can be the cause of many symptoms, including sleep disturbances, changes in hormone production, and increased pain sensation. To regain normal function, it is critical to ensure that those vertebrae are in alignment and allowed to remain that way so the injured nerves and tissues can heal. This can be accomplished only through an upper cervical specific chiropractic adjustment.
