Fatigue Q & A
Central Park West Wellness
What causes fatigue?
Fatigue can have a wide variety of causes, from emotional stress to nutritional deficiencies. However, many people with fatigue also have problems with interference in their nervous system that makes the problem much more severe. Resolving these problems can reduce symptoms of fatigue, making you feel healthier and more energetic.
Why is nervous system interference a problem?
The nervous system is the “master” system in your body. As such, it controls, enlivens, and coordinates all the body’s tissues, organs, and systems. If the nervous system is compromised, getting enough sleep, exercising daily, and giving your body the best foods still won’t take care of fatigue. To recover completely, you must address the interference.
How does chiropractic care improve the health of the nervous system?
Nervous system interference often occurs because of pressure on the nerves, as well as problems with posture. Chiropractic care eliminates these issues naturally, which removes interference from the nervous system and improves fatigue.
How does it work to combat fatigue?
If you come to Central Park West Wellness complaining of fatigue, your chiropractor begins the treatment process by evaluating your body carefully to look for alignment problems, weak areas, and any other issue that may be affecting your nervous system. Based on this analysis, he creates a customized treatment program that includes chiropractic procedures designed to address each issue.
In addition to treating you in the clinic, your chiropractor also provides you with exercises to do at home so you can continue to stabilize your spine, build strength, and improve your overall health. The ultimate goal of treatment is to restore your energy levels and prevent you from developing fatigue again in the future.
Is chiropractic care safe?
Central Park West Wellness uses The Pettibon System, which is a proven posture and spine correction methodology designed to restore normal spinal form and function. This technique is safe, non-invasive, and unlikely to cause any side effects. It has been researched extensively, and it often helps patients avoid more dangerous options, such as surgery or medication. Research has also shown this approach to be quite effective for resolving spinal problems.
More on Fatique
When our energy is in short supply, even with a good night’s sleep, we usually experience fatigue. There is a host of causes including poor diet, lack of exercise, mental and emotional challenges, or even adrenal and thyroid under functioning, allergies, blood sugar or blood pressure issues or being overweight. Certainly, these and other possible causes should be investigated and above all, it is imperative to be certain that there is as little interference to the nerve system as possible. Since its role is that of the master system, the nerve system controls enliven and coordinates all the tissues, organs and systems of the body. We must, therefore, be certain that the nerve system is as free of interference as possible. We can put the best food in the body, attempt to improve our health through daily exercise and even get eight hours’ sleep, but if the nerve system remains compromised and our deteriorated posture requires massive amounts of bodily energy each day to hold us upright, then all will be for naught, and fatigue will persist. A course of care to lessen or remove nerve pressure, and restore postural balance will ensure that all the body’s organs and systems function at their best and that we will have our best ability to adapt to daily stresses and strains while being able to maintain a great level of energy.
