Fatigue

Fatigue can be caused by several different factors. Many people at the beginning of their care often remark, “I feel tired all the time,” and we find that it usually has to do with their spinal alignment or their diet.
 
In cases of fatigue due to the spine we must remember the brain and nervous system control the rest of the body. If the spine is out of alignment (subluxated), the muscles have to work that much harder to maintain posture. Dr. Roger Sperry won the Nobel Prize for his work in brain research. He found that 90% of the energy used by the brain is devoted to relating the body to gravity...POSTURE! When the spine is out of alignment, muscles are tight and the nerves are pinched, there is a tremendous power drain that pulls energy to support a bad spine thus making a person feel overly tired or fatigued. In these cases we evaluate the patient’s posture and spinal alignment to determine if Chiropractic care is appropriate for them. With proper spinal adjustments and exercises aimed at strengthening the posture most patients report a significant increase in energy.
 
In cases of fatigue due to diet, we find that energy level can be due to nutritional deficiencies. At Stark Family Chiropractic in Fountain Valley we evaluate for nutritional deficiencies and if found, make necessary recommendations. If the body does not have the correct building blocks to rebuild, repair and make new cells, the patient may have the feeling of “running on empty” and feel tired even upon waking from a good night’s sleep. In our office we use whole food concentrates rather than synthetic vitamins and re-evaluate to monitor progress. When diet is the cause of fatigue, patients usually respond to this approach.
