People who suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome are not simply tired. The fatigue associated with the syndrome is severe and cannot be explained by the presence of any other condition. The term chronic fatigue syndrome was first coined in 1988, but the disorder had been described in numerous sources since at least the mid-1700s. Over the years, it was known by several different names, including neurasthenia, febricula, and effort syndrome.
One thing that hasn’t changed much since these early documented cases is why the condition occurs. Many theories have been tested, including hormone imbalance, infection, auto-immune, and psychological, but nailing down a certain cause has proven to be extremely challenging for the scientific community.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and a Healthy Spine
There are many potential theories surrounding the origins of chronic fatigue syndrome, and there is one common thread that connects them all. Regardless of the eventually determined cause, your body’s central nervous system is the master control system for all of it. Signals that travel between the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, and all tissues of the body can be interrupted by improper spinal alignment. The brainstem, which is responsible for controlling many of our body’s life-giving functions, can be negatively impacted by a misalignment of the atlas, the uppermost vertebra in the spine.
At The Apple Valley Clinic of Chiropractic, our focus is on achieving and maintaining normal atlas alignment. Over time, this allows your body to heal and function at a level that is closer to optimal. Many of our patients suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia have begun the healing process naturally by removing the obstruction to their brainstem and central nervous system. You’ll find that our approach and our techniques are quite different. If you are looking for answers that might give you some much-needed relief, contact our office for a complimentary consultation.
