Fatigue is a symptom that most people will experience at some point in their life. If you feel you are experiencing extreme weariness, are unusually fatigued, or are constantly feeling exhausted, adrenal fatigue may be a major factor in your exhaustion.
Our bodies are made to respond to stressful situations appropriately as they arise, but sometimes we can become overwhelmed by stress in severe situations. Sometimes it is the culmination of stress over long periods of time, or the deluge of multiples stresses inundating us at the same time, that may in time cause our bodies to overwork our adrenal glands — whose main function is to respond to stress. Your adrenal glands are located on top of the kidneys and secrete hormones such as cortisol, epinephrine, and norepinephrine that help you react to stressful situations.
At Physicians Health and Injury Center, we work with the spine and with the nervous system, which is the brain, spinal cord, and the nerve roots that exit between the vertebrae or bones in the back. Stress in the form of physical, chemical or mental stress can cause the spine to misalign, and put pressure on the nerves. When this occurs at the area of the spine where the nerves exit and supply the adrenal glands, the adrenal glands don’t function well and adrenal fatigue can occur.
Our integrated and wellness care is non-invasive and does not involve medication. By realigning the spine with gentle maneuvers known as adjustments, we can correct the underlying cause of fatigue and reopen the energy pathways within your nervous system.
As part of our patient care, we also educate our patients on nutrition, exercise, sleep, and how to properly manage mental and emotional stress.
