How Chiropractic Care Can Help You Fight Fatigue Naturally

by | Sep 29, 2022

Fatigue is defined as extreme tiredness and it’s running rampant in our society today. While many of us are burned out, overworked, and exhausted much of the time, fatigue is a step above normal exhaustion. It can be a once and a while kind of thing, or it can be chronic. It can be extremely difficult to live with fatigue as it impacts every aspect of your life. Thankfully, Dr. Thomas Keogh of Bare Chiropractic in Billings has some news that can provide hope: chiropractic care can help with fatigue!

What Causes Fatigue?

Sometimes, fatigue is easily explained. Perhaps you haven’t been sleeping enough, haven’t been eating a healthy diet, and have been very stressed out. These are common and obvious contributing factors. But sometimes, you may feel like you’re getting enough sleep and are taking good care of your health, but you still are dealing with fatigue. Regardless of your lifestyle habits, fatigue can be frustrating to live with, but Billings chiropractic care can help you overcome the endless cycle of fatigue and get you back to living a full, energized life.

Getting to the Root Cause

If you suspect that lifestyle habits are the root cause of your fatigue, the best thing you can do is to correct those issues. Ensure that you’re getting the recommended amount of sleep each night, eat a well-balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and cut out habits that impede good sleep, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, and being on devices before bed. If those changes don’t help, you need to further explore the root cause of the fatigue. As with anything, you can treat the symptoms with medication, but that doesn’t actually correct the problem or provide a long-term solution. Additionally, medicine can bring about side-effects and residual issues that you don’t want to deal with.

Chiropractic care aims to discover the root cause of your fatigue and address that issue first. Often in people who deal with fatigue, spinal misalignments are present. While you may think the two are not seem connected, remember that the spine houses the spinal cord, which is the information highway on which every message from your brain travels. When a vertebra is out of alignment even in the slightest, it presses on nearby nerves and impedes the flow of communication, causing hormones and bodily systems to work improperly.

Chiropractic Care for Fatigue

Getting adjusted regularly can improve the function of your central nervous system and thus all the other systems in your body. This helps regulate sleep and wake cycles, improves sleep quality, decreases pain, combats stress and anxiety, and increases energy. Multiple studies have explored the efficacy of chiropractic care in fighting fatigue, and the results are quite promising. In one particular study, researchers looked at 19 people who were diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). After getting adjusted, they were monitored for six months to ensure they maintained spinal alignment, after which they reported a significant improvement in their fatigue, mental health, and overall quality of life.
