Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

According to the Center for Disease Control, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is “a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue that is not improved by bed rest and that may be worsened by physical or mental activity.

Symptoms affect several body systems and may include weakness, muscle pain, impaired memory and/or mental concentration, and insomnia which can result in reduced participation in daily activities.”

Do you suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Our approach to care can increase your quality of life.

Before receiving chiropractic care, I was in constant pain with memory loss, fatigue, headaches and anxiety.

After only a short while, the pain has decreased significantly. Now I can get my housework done and life is more enjoyable.

A brain-based neurologic component to CFS is seen in several MRI studies of patients with CFS which show abnormalities such as “small, punctate, white matter, sub-cortical hyperintensities”. These big words let us know that there are actual physical changes within the brains of people with CFS and that this is not a psychological disorder.


Finding New Solutions for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

As with most conditions for which there are not satisfactory medical treatment options, there is an interest from CFS patients in complementary and alternative medicine. There are numerous anecdotal reports from around the world showing the improvement of symptoms with chiropractic care.

At our office, we combine traditional chiropractic care with self-care strategies, laboratory tests and nutritional and supplement recommendations to give patients with CFS a well-rounded approach to a better quality of life.

I was feeling constant fatigue and headaches before going to Dr. Hoffman. My overall health was going down hill and I felt twice my age.

After 2 or 3 treatments my headaches disappeared and I felt lighter and more energetic than I had for years. Dr. Hoffman looked at my overall health and Chiropractic needs at the same time.
