ARE YOU CONSTANTLY TIRED? DO YOU SUFFER FROM CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME?
Fatigue is not a not disease but rather the result of lifestyle issues and underlying health conditions. Most of you have experienced fatigue at some point – illness, chronic back, neck or shoulder pain, sleep apnea, pregnancy and new parenting responsibilities, work pressures and depression are common culprits. Most adults need at least seven or eight hours a night for optimal health.
When you get less sleep than you need, as many do, it can lead to a variety of health problems – especially if you are continually sleep-deprived. Chiropractic care can be very effective in treating many of these conditions – Dr. Doug Lukinuk (Dr. Doug) and the team at PTBO Chiro can help.

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES BEING FATIGUED FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME?
Even just one bad night of sleep has consequences and will affect your ability to function at your best – Initial symptoms are:
- Inability to concentrate
- Impaired memory
- Reduced physical strength
- Reduced ability to fight infection
Long-term, consistent periods of sleep deprivation have significant health consequences such as:
- Increased risk for depression and mental illness
- Severe mood swings
- Increased risk for stroke, heart disease and asthma attack
- Increased risk of car accidents and untreated sleep disorders such as sleep apnea
HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELP WITH FATIGUE?
In order to feel healthy, well-rested and full of energy your body needs to be working properly. Subluxations of the spine (a misalignment of the vertebrae) can cause an interruption between the central nervous system and the rest of your body. In a domino effect, this interruption causes other systems in the body to not function properly. Contact us for a chiropractic adjustment by Dr. Doug at our Peterborough Clinic. Removing these subluxations restores proper nerve function and balance to the body. Spinal alignment is critical to fighting fatigue and promoting overall health and wellness.
WHAT IS CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME (CFS)?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a challenging disorder that is characterized by extreme fatigue and cannot be explained by any underlying medical condition. The fatigue may become worse with mental or physical activity, but does not improve with rest. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome often can make it difficult or impossible to get out of bed or engage in your daily activities.
Symptoms may include:
- Loss of memory or difficulty concentrating
- Severe fatigue not improved by rest
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Extreme reactions to exertion
Research has shown that individuals struggling with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome frequently had misalignments in the Atlas, or top bone in the spine. Chiropractic corrected the issue and significantly improved patients’ quality of life.
