Fatigue Takes Many Forms. Thankfully, So Does Chiropractic.
Did you know your adrenal glands – located above your kidneys – secrete hormones specifically designed to help mitigate stressful situations? When the adrenal glands malfunction, over- or under-producing these vital hormones, it’s likely to result in fatigue. You might feel lethargic, sleepy, or just plain worn-out, even if you’re getting enough sleep and are in otherwise good health.
With all the possible stressors in our modern lives, it’s not surprising that more and more people suffer from fatigue. It’s tempting to think that you just need a good night of sleep, but really what you need is help from a medical professional. Adrenal fatigue can come on suddenly and stick around until it’s properly treated. To make matters worse, it can be difficult to diagnose outside of exhaustive testing.
Chiropractors know a little something about adrenal fatigue. Not only can the condition be trigger by spinal subluxations and nervous system impediment, it can also be treated by spinal manipulation and adjustment. Simply put, chiropractors often see this condition in varying stages, equipping them with the familiarity to diagnose and treat it.
The professional team at Posture Works in Denver, CO and San Francisco, CA wants to help you battle fatigue. With a focus on your long-term wellness, we’re ready to help you identify and combat adrenal fatigue.
Where does adrenal fatigue come from?
Adrenal fatigue is caused by a range of stress-related factors. A common example is when people stay up too late on their phones or computers, thereby reducing the time the adrenal system has to recover each night. Constant pressure at work, taking care of a family member full-time, or stressing about money are also common circumstances that lead to adrenal system malfunction.
What happens during adrenal fatigue?
Adrenal gland imbalances present in a number of symptoms. Unfortunately, these are often associated with numerous other illnesses, making it hard to nail down adrenal fatigue right away. Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Not being able to think clearly;
- Experiencing low energy on a long-term basis;
- Depression and anxiety;
- Poor immune system health.
How do you recover from adrenal fatigue?
While rest and relaxation help, removing as many stressors as possible is the best way of dealing with adrenal imbalances. Closely followed, is working to maintain your physical health.
Seeing a chiropractor who can pinpoint an adrenal problem and put you on the road to recovery is a smart idea. Through a specific program of spinal manipulation, combined with other treatments such as therapeutic massage, your chiropractor can help mitigate the impact of stress on your body. By realigning the vertebrae, your spine will function as it should. This is also helpful in restoring the adrenal gland system so that it works properly as well. This is because subluxations in specific vertebrae are sometimes contributors to the problem.
