Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment in New York City

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than one million people in the United States have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  It is found more often in women than in men – women are four times more likely to get it. While anyone of any age can get Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, it seems to be most common in people in their 40s and 50s. 

Patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome find themselves in a state of continuous and oftentimes debilitating fatigue that no amount of bed rest can alleviate.   For some people, this may only last a few months, for others a few years. In many cases the symptoms come and go over several years. The condition is characterized by the following symptoms:

  • Physical and mental exhaustion including loss of memory or ability to concentrate
  • Sore throat and swollen lymph nodes in armpits and neck
  • Difficulty thinking and maintaining concentration
  • Aching muscles and joints (with no redness or swelling)
  • Headaches
  • Malaise after any kind of exertion
  • Other individualized symptoms include muscle weakness, night sweats, and sensitivity to light.

Fatigue is a warning signal within the body. Experiencing fatigue is an indicator that something is wrong. This may be a lifestyle or health related. Unfortunately, we’re not always so in tune with our bodies as to notice that our fatigue level is unusually high, or that it isn’t normal to be so fatigued all the time. When you’re repeatedly fatigued, day in and day out, it’s time to evaluate what in your life may be causing it.

Your nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord, and a dense series of nerves that go out to all parts of your body. Your nervous system is responsible for providing the energy necessary for life in the body to exist and function properly.  Through chiropractic adjustments the person with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can experience relief from symptoms by benefiting from spinal adjustments, and reduced tension in the neck and shoulders. Research has found that chiropractic care has been found to create a better, more restful sleep in adults and children. As we all know, a night of interrupted sleep, snoring, or sleep apnea can lead to a day full of exhaustion. Chiropractic adjustments to the lumbar, spine, skull, subluxation, and mid-thorax, were found to alleviate these issues, thus allowing for more restful, meaningful sleep. 

Craniosacral Therapy is another very good option for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Craniosacral therapy will allow the body to release any stuck or stored emotions and past traumas that may be contributing to the chronic fatigue experience.   Dr. Alex Kaminsky is a specialist when it comes to your nervous system and spine and is an expert in addressing the underlying physiological and neurological consequences that begin with Spinal Nerve Stress.

Releasing Spinal Cord and Spinal Nerve Stress caused by subluxation with gentle, specific, and scientific adjustments and re-alignments, often the commonly underlying cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is corrected. These realignments open the natural energetic pathways of the body reconnecting the brain to all organ systems, glands, and tissues.  One common cause for fatigue is an imbalance or impairment in the flow of nerve energy. In the normal human body, energy flows in a cycle from the brain to the spinal cord and then to the tissues of the body before flowing back to the brain. However, this normal energy flow can be interrupted and thrown off by an unbalanced spine. 

Commonly patients naturally see an increase in their energy once their bodies begin to be properly aligned.  Misalignments cause the body and it’s systems to function suboptimally. It’s this suboptimal functioning that results in a variety of issues ranging from back and neck pain to fatigue. This is one reason that patients suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome often find some relief during regular chiropractic adjustments and Craniosacral Therapy.

About Dr. Kaminsky & Craniosacral Therapy

Having a Chiropractic background since the year 2000, Dr. Kaminsky offers many methods of treatment with an emphasis on Craniosacral Therapy in NYC.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a method focusing on the link between the cranium (head) and sacrum (the second to last bone at the base of your spine), scientifically proven to work in unison to pump fluid throughout the body, an unknown disruption of which can cause many health issues.  The craniosacral mechanism pumps vital fluid called cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) through the body and in a sense energetically lubricates the joints, tissues, organs; basically all cells of the body. It is the driving force of all your body’s systems of function; including maintaining the tone of your muscles.

The Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord) are surrounded with CSF generating energetic rhythmic impulses of fluid delicately pumping throughout your body’s parts “breathing” the movement of life. This measurable rhythm of moving fluid, like the heart rhythm, pulse rhythm, breathing rhythm is the foundational “blueprint” and primary principle of our real-time state of our health. 

Compromises of our rhythmic movements of fluid flow correlates to the impulse restrictions in the system which the body is unable to overcome or self-correct. This is the reason why we have “dis-ease”, symptoms, conditions, basically all ailments.  This is where the skill of an experienced craniosacral therapist becomes valuable.  By placing his or her hands on your body the practitioner can feel, detect, evaluate, and facilitate correction of these restrictive arrhythmic impulses.

The craniosacral therapist helps your rhythm restore and renew in compromised areas allowing for healing to take place of sensory, motor, musculoskeletal, neurological disorders, symptoms, conditions and pain.  To learn more, visit the other pages on this website.
