Complementary Therapies for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Natural Therapy options CFS Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Scott ColasantiChronic Fatigue Syndrome is a complex and difficult to diagnose medical condition. Often the diagnosis is a result of ruling out many other possible conditions.

If you have been diagnosed CFS and want to explore options to supplement your conventional treatment routine, consider the following:

It’s important to involve your medical doctor and all practitioners to develop a successful treatment program. Before starting any alternate or complementary therapies, be certain to consult with your doctor.

  • Chiropractic – Spinal adjustments help increase range of motion, reduces nerve irritation, and improves spinal health.
  • Osteopathy – Osteopathic treatments help improve circulation, improve mobility and restore health.
  • Physical Therapy – Along with the application of heat, cold, ultrasound and the use of electrical stimulation, the Physical Therapist can also recommend therapeutic exercises to help with the symptoms of CFS.
  • Acupuncture – Acupuncture can help relieve pain and the ‘cupping’ technique can help with muscle tension.

There is, unfortunately, no cure for CFS, and often the most successful treatment is one of coping and symptom alleviation. If you’d like to explore alternative and complementary treatment options, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 519-258-8544
