Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) can be difficult for a general practitioner to diagnose and treat.
Since there is no particular test for chronic fatigue, other conditions need to be precluded first.
This can be a long and difficult process for someone who is already suffering.
Chiropractic Treatment for Chronic Fatigue
The Chiropractors at AICA Snellville are here to offer perspective around the symptoms of CFS, as well as the types of natural treatment solutions that are available and do not involve prescription medication.
What Are the Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Officially, there are 8 clear-cut symptoms of chronic fatigue. These are:
- Cognitive issues (concentration and memory)
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Exhaustion that lasts more than a day after mental or physical exertion
- Joint pain accompanied by swelling
- Muscle pain with no explanation
- New headache pattern
- Persistent fatigue
- Sore throat
Upper Cervical Chiropractic for Chronic Fatigue Sufferers
When the upper neck falls out of alignment, a combination of the above-listed symptoms can take place.
This is because the C1 and C2 vertebrae are located at the base of the skull. They hold the head upright but also protect the top of the spinal cord and brainstem.
A misalignment here can restrict the flow of vital fluids like cerebrospinal fluid and blood.
In addition to this, pressure can be put on the brainstem, thereby affecting brain-body communication.
At AICA Snellville, our Chiropractors use a variety of effective treatment techniques, including the Blair method (a specific form of Chiropractic care) to provide the best results possible for our patients.

We are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and can be contacted through our online submission form or by calling us at 404-889-8826.
