Chiropractic Treatment for Fatigue in Alexandria, VA
Fatigue is a symptom of disequilibrium in the body. Chiropractors divide fatigue into two primary types:
- Fatigue caused by deficiency
- Fatigue caused by overstimulation
When we talk about fatigue caused by deficiency, we’re referring to fatigue that is caused by a low-performing nervous system, sleep deprivation, burnout, poor nutrition, or, most commonly, a combination of these factors. This type of fatigue is addressed with chiropractic care and lifestyle changes.
Fatigue that is caused by overstimulation results in simultaneous feelings of exhaustion and being unable to fall asleep. This is a telltale sign of chronic, low-level stress.
This type of stress shifts you into what we call a sympathetic state. Being in a sympathetic state means your body is releasing cortisol and your adrenal glands are exhausted—you are in fight-or-flight mode. Our treatment approach involves supporting your nervous system through spinal adjustments, addressing hormonal imbalances, and helping you implement lifestyle changes to reduce stress.
