Chronic fatigue syndrome is a complex condition, and the causes are little understood. Even so, the list of symptoms can make day to day life difficult. Extreme tiredness or fatigue that does not go away with sleep and rest, memory loss, muscle pain, and swollen lymph nodes are all classic signs of the condition. In most cases, a diagnosis is not found through testing. Other issues are tested for and once they are ruled out, chronic fatigue moves up higher on the list of possibilities. All of this takes time and can be a frustrating process.
Some researchers are looking into the matter as one that can be relieved with exercise and a positive outlook. They have explored the matter from the angle of the condition being more of a state of mind than an actual physiological condition. Studies that have been published on the matter have drawn some controversy. Sufferers of the condition know the issues are more complex than what was suggested. Patients and physicians alike find themselves at a loss when it comes to effectively treating this difficult and complicated condition.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic and Chronic Fatigue For physicians trained in upper cervical chiropractic care, the subject takes a turn for the better. Often the cause of such a condition is an impedance in communication with the brain and the other systems of the body via the nervous system. What can cause the obstruction? The two upper vertebrae, C1 and C2, can come out of alignment. If this occurs, stress is put on the brainstem. This region of the brain is what is responsible for many of the body's functions. When under duress, increased pain, lack of or disturbance in sleep, changes in hormones, and other symptoms can manifest. Fortunately, many of these functions can heal and return to normal when the upper cervical region is properly aligned.
