Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a condition marked by severe, continued tiredness that is not readily explained by some other medical condition and is not relieved by rest. While the exact cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is unknown, leading theories suggest that it may be due to viral infections
or inflammation in the nervous system that results from poor immune responses.
The inflammation in the nervous system is where upper cervical chiropractic care at Pinnacle Family Chiropractic comes in. Upper cervical care relieves the pressure on the central nervous system that is often caused by the head and neck misalignment. Even the slightest misalignment of the neck and head area often results in a buildup of pressure on the delicate nerve tissue of the upper spinal cord and brainstem. It is this pressure on the nerves that is associated with chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms.
