Fatigue Q & A

What causes chronic fatigue?

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a complex disorder characterized by the inability to identify an underlying medical condition as the source of the fatigue. Chronic fatigue can get worse with activity but doesn’t get better, even with sufficient rest.

Chronic fatigue has no known cause. Ongoing fatigue is frequently linked to medical issues:

  • Stress
  • Viral infections
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Compromised immune systems

Age may be a factor in the condition, as chronic fatigue most often affects people in their 40s and 50s. However, diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome occurs in people of all ages and more frequently in women than men.

What are the symptoms of chronic fatigue?

Chronic fatigue can be the result of many factors influencing your health. Extreme exhaustion lasting more than a day after physical activity may qualify as chronic fatigue syndrome.

Although there isn’t a conclusive test to diagnose chronic fatigue syndrome, Dr. Rainaldo conducts a physical examination to determine if you have any of the following symptoms associated with the fatigue:

  • Memory loss
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Difficulty concentrating

When left untreated, chronic fatigue can result in depression, lost time from work, and social isolation. Fatigue can also cause additional health complications due to inactivity and poor lifestyle choices.

Dr. Rainaldo offers proactive guidance for overcoming the emotional and psychological effects of chronic fatigue syndrome.

What is the treatment for chronic fatigue?

Dr. Rainaldo uses applied kinesiology to diagnose the cause of your chronic fatigue syndrome, by using muscle testing and other techniques. He tests different reflexes to identify sources of tension and emotional stress. His goal is to eliminate your stress and achieve whole-body balance.

Through chiropractic care and physical therapies, Dr. Rainaldo introduces relaxation techniques to rebalance the body. He may also employ manual manipulation to realign your spinal column and improve blood circulation throughout the body.

As poor nutrition can cause several health conditions, including chronic fatigue, Dr. Rainaldo also explores possible dietary triggers including nutritional deficiencies. He may recommend herbal and vitamin supplements to promote healing and improve your energy levels based on what your body needs.
