Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia might be so closely related, that some people in the healthcare world consider them to be two names for the same thing. Regardless of your diagnosis, the likelihood is that you suffer from widespread pain and fatigue that’s impossible to shake.
Symptoms that the two conditions typically share include:
- Disturbances in sleep
- Concentration and memory problems
- Depression or anxiety
- Digestive complaints such as diarrhea, constipation, or bloating
Treatment options for either condition remain somewhat limited, especially if you’re looking for a solution that does not require the long-term use of medications merely to manage symptoms.

Finding Relief with Upper Cervical Chiropractic
The goal of upper cervical chiropractic is to address the underlying cause of health conditions. The job of your spine is to protect the delicate tissues of the central nervous system (CNS). However, either from injury or just day to day wear and tear, spinal misalignments can occur. Rather than protecting the CNS, the vertebrae can actually impair signals traveling over the nerves, resulting in an increased sensitivity to pain, chronic fatigue, and other symptoms.
We focus our care on the upper cervical spine since the atlas vertebra protects a vital area of the CNS, the brainstem. Many of our patients who have come to us with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia have reported that once the atlas alignment was corrected, symptoms have decreased. This makes sense, given the fact that their brain and body were once again able to communicate properly. If you are experiencing one of these conditions and have not yet explored upper cervical chiropractic as a health care option, contact us to schedule your complimentary consultation.
