Fatigue is extreme tiredness that can be chronic or occasional. It is usually attributed to physical exertion or a mental illness, but it can also come about from low quality sleep or a poor diet. Emotional or physical stress can also be a contributing factor to fatigue. But if we can’t control our stress levels, how much physical activity is required of us, the presence of a mental illness, or how well we sleep, how can we possibly get a grasp on our fatigue?
Most of the problems that contribute to fatigue can be traced to a spinal misalignment that causes problems within your body. You may be dealing with a mental illness, such as anxiety or depression, or you may simply be overwhelmed by financial strain or relationship stress. Chiropractic can help. Maybe your job is laborious, and you’re simply exhausted all the time. Chiropractic can help. Or maybe you’re dealing with sleep problems, such as insomnia, sleep apnea, or poor sleep quality. Chiropractic can help. No matter the root cause of your fatigue, chiropractic can help you sleep better, combat fatigue, and achieve better overall health.
Will Chiropractic Really Help Me Feel Less Tired?
The short answer is YES! Chiropractic is all about restoring whole body health and bringing your brain and body back into balance and establishing proper function. Your central nervous system controls everything in your body, and you need it to be working properly and communicating well with the rest of your body in order to be healthy.
If you’re stressed out, anxious, or dealing with a mental illness, chances are your hormones are unbalanced or not being produced or used properly. If you’re physically exhausted or in pain often, your body likely isn’t getting enough nutrients and time to heal and replenish itself, leaving it to work overtime trying to recuperate, making you even more exhausted. If you’re dealing with sleep apnea, nighttime waking, or insomnia, you may be dealing with hormone problems or a problem between your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
When you get a chiropractic adjustment from Dr. Grant Lisetor in Charlotte, NC, any nerve interference in your spine will be removed, allowing your central nervous system to send messages to the rest of your body effectively and thoroughly. This proper restoration of body function allows everything inside you to work as it should—hormones will be produced and used correctly, your body will heal and replenish itself appropriately, and you will have proper brain-body balance and will be closer to achieving optimal health.
Spinal alignment is the key to optimal health, and regular chiropractic adjustments can help you attain that health and finally combat your fatigue once and for all.
