Chronic fatigue syndrome is characterized by debilitating fatigue that has lasted for 6 or more months. The associated fatigue is not the type of tired feeling that reduces or goes away with rest. Rather, the fatigue is unremitting and interferes with a person’s ability to go about their ordinary day-to-day activities.
Over the years, many theories have been proposed as possible causes:
However, despite advances in research, much of the origins of chronic fatigue syndrome remain undetermined. This can leave sufferers wondering about what treatment options are viable and which paths to look down in order to find a solution that isn’t merely temporary.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the Central Nervous System
The vertebrae of your spine serve to provide protection for your body’s central nervous system, which is made up of the brain and spinal cord. Problems with your spinal alignment can create tension in the spinal cord or pressure on nerves that can hinder signals that travel over them. These problems can be magnified in an area of your central nervous system called the brainstem, which controls many of the life-giving functions of our bodies. These functions include hormone production, blood pressure regulation, immune function, and more.
At Precision Chiropractic West, we use state-of-the-art upper cervical techniques to determine if a misalignment of the atlas, which normally protects the brainstem, can be affecting your body’s ability to self-regulate. We correct these misalignments using the Atlas Orthogonal technique, which is known for its specificity and gentle corrections.
Once the atlas is positioned correctly, the body can begin to heal any damaged tissues to restore proper brain-body communication. Although there is still debate as to the certainties of the origins of chronic fatigue syndrome, having a central nervous system that is working optimally can help the body to heal and regain its ability to function normally.
