Chiropractic Treatment for Fatigue in McLean, VA
When you feel fatigued, it’s your body’s way of telling you that it is out of balance. Chiropractic views fatigue as either:
- Fatigue caused by deficiency
- Fatigue caused by overstimulation
Fatigue caused by deficiency can be thought of as classic fatigue. It’s caused by sleep deprivation, poor diet, burnout, and a low-performing nervous system. Chiropractic treats fatigue caused by deficiency with spinal manipulation in order to restore proper function to the nervous system and also by encouraging lifestyle changes that help you lead a more balanced life.
When patients experience fatigue caused by overstimulation, they usually feel exhausted, but they can’t fall asleep at night. We see this as a sign that your body has shifted into the sympathetic state due to chronic low levels of stress.
The sympathetic state is more commonly known as fight-or-flight mode. The stress hormone cortisol floods your body, causing adrenal fatigue. Treatment for this type of fatigue begins with targeted spinal manipulations to unblock nerve flow, but equally important is balancing your hormones to relieve your adrenals. We’ll also help you make lifestyle changes to reduce your stress levels.
