Chiropractic Treatment for Fatigue in Fairfax, VA
Fatigue is your body’s way of telling you that it’s out of balance. In chiropractic, we believe there are two different types of fatigue:
- Fatigue caused by deficiency
- Fatigue caused by overstimulation
Fatigue from deficiency is classic fatigue, most often caused by a lack of sleep, poor diet, burnout on the job, or a low-performing nervous system. Treatment for fatigue caused by deficiency is fairly straight-forward—we unblock nerve flow through chiropractic adjustments and recommend lifestyle changes to improve your well-being and help you get your energy back.
Fatigue caused by overstimulation is characterized by exhaustion accompanied by an inability to fall asleep or stay asleep. This tells us that you have chronic low levels of stress, which has shifted your body into the sympathetic state.
The sympathetic state is also known as fight-or-flight mode; it leaves your body flooded with cortisol and fatigues your adrenal glands. When we treat fatigue caused by overstimulation, the first step is to unblock nerve flow using spinal manipulation. Just as important is balancing your hormone levels to relieve your depleted adrenals. Finally, we’ll recommend lifestyle changes to reduce your stress levels.
