What is Fatigue?

If you are suffering from mild fatigue or extreme fatigue known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) the effects on your daily life can be devastating. Determining the underlying condition can also prove to be very challenging. While the name “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” offers some insight into this crippling syndrome, it does not encompass the entire condition.

Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

CFS usually begins suddenly, with symptoms that resemble the flu; however, these flu-like symptoms may last a lifetime.

Other serious symptoms that accompany the profound fatigue include:

  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain (that travels from one joint to another)
  • Digestive disorders (Irritable Bowel Syndrome, etc.)
  • Foggy head
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • A recurring sore throat with no evidence of infection
  • Back or Neck Pain
  • Chills
  • Un-refreshing sleep
  • Memory loss
  • Night sweats
  • Enlarged/Tender lymph nodes
  • Mood swings/Irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety/Panic attacks

At BackFit Health + Spine our TEAM of Medical Doctors, Pain Specialists, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists work together to concentrate on finding the reason an individual is suffering with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. We aim to find the root cause and to create the patient a personalized treatment program. Each patient is unique, which is why each treatment program is custom-designed to meet the needs of a specific patient.

This clinic is very friendly and knowledgable and multiple injuries and therapy options for each individual's needs. After one week I already feel stronger and barely have any pain in my hip. Gotta stay with therapy and it will have results!

My back has been feeling much better allowing me to be up on my feet for longer periods of time. The staff there are all very friendly and the scheduling is very accommodating to my busy schedule. I have liked it so much I even brought my 16 year old in to start her treatment too!

Just had a great massage there. I work with large animals so my back and legs where achy but now they feel great.
