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

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.

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.
