In today's fast-paced world, chronic fatigue is a condition that many people deal with on a daily basis both because of the stress they face at home and work. While chronic fatigue isn't usually serious enough to prevent someone from going to school or working, it certainly does have an affect on day-to-day life. Not only does chronic fatigue keep sufferers from doing what they enjoy most during their time off, but it also has been known to make even simple tasks feel like a huge effort.
According to medical research, chronic fatigue syndrome is characterized by three main features:
- A lack of energy accompanied with low moods, flu-like symptoms, or chronic pain
- Poor quality of sleep that is either too little or restless
- General impairment in the ability to carry out daily tasks like cooking, cleaning, studying, etc.
Tired All The Time
For chronic fatigue syndrome sufferers, the primary symptom they suffer from is relentless fatigue. This means that no matter how much sleep someone with chronic fatigue gets every night (at least 6 hours), they still wake up feeling tired and worn down. Chronic fatigue can also cause chronic lethargy, which results in difficulty even getting out of bed in the morning. And when combined with chronic pain, it becomes almost impossible for chronic fatigue sufferers to leave the house.
What chronic fatigue sufferers need is a holistic chiropractor. While chronic fatigue patients may find themselves in the hands of all different types of doctors, chronic pain and chronic fatigue are conditions that can be treated naturally through a functional medicine approach to chiropractic care. At Dr. Thomas Polucki's office, both chronic pain and chronic fatigue sufferers receive treatments that help relieve their symptoms naturally because his office uses complementary methods to treat both disorders.
One way that Dr. Polucki helps his chronic fatigue patients is by using the non-invasive, Alignment-Balance-Coordination (ABC) functional examination to identify the source of chronic pain or illness in the body so he knows where to focus treatment efforts when it comes to relieving chronic fatigue.
Pain and Suffering
According to research, chronic fatigue is an underlying factor in chronic pain. For example, chronic fatigue sufferers may suffer more chronic back pain than usual because chronic pain can make it difficult for chronic fatigue sufferers to get enough exercise throughout the day.
Once the cause of chronic fatigue is identified (which Dr. Polucki does through the ABC Exam), then he can use his expertise in advanced chiropractic care (without twisting or cracking) to relieve chronic fatigue symptoms by restoring proper joint, muscle, and nervous system function.
Dr. Thomas Polucki's office has many tools at their disposal that they use during treatments to help chronic fatigue patients feel better more quickly including:
PEMF Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field
Pulsed electromagnetic fields are naturally occurring. PEMFs can be found in the earth's magnetic field and even in your body. PEMF therapy uses PEMFs that are artificially created to interact with you and treat many different problems. It can decrease pain, increase cell vitality, stimulate tissue growth, reduce inflammation, break down scar tissue, and restore normal function of cells.
NIR Near InfraRed
We can see red light, but we can only feel infrared light as heat. And more than just a hot pack, NIR doesn’t just relieve and relax but helps heal injuries and wounds. NIR therapy has been studied for its ability to help people recover from illness and injury for over 50 years.
Whole Body Vibration
In many studies whole body vibration has been shown to have positive influence on bone density muscle strength and power. It has been concluded that whole body vibration could be a useful therapy to reduce the risk of falls and fractures in elderly patients. It has also been shown that whole body vibration may be an alternative to high impact exercises, for example jogging, for healthy young people.
Top Shelf Nutritional Supplements
Nutritional supplements are preparations intended to enhance the diet and provide nutrients that may otherwise not be consumed in sufficient quantities. They include vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids, amino acids, herbal extracts and “super food” concentrates.
Online Courses for Diet and Exercise Home Therapy
Home therapy is a type of treatment in which people are treated from the comfort and privacy of their own homes. Home therapy allows for more freedom, less expense than visiting a therapist's office, and can save time as well. Home therapy also allows for more privacy, especially in the case of physical therapy, which can be embarrassing. Home therapy may have certain limitations and should only be attempted if one has the doctor supervision.
These therapies are used in combination with no twist or crack joint adjustment so that chronic pain patients can feel like themselves again and chronic fatigue patients can get back to enjoying life.
