Massage Incline Village, NV: Massage for Treating Chronic Fatigue Symptoms
Massage for Treating Chronic Fatigue
According to the Mayo Clinic, a leader in medical education, research and care, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is defined as “a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that can’t be explained by any underlying medical condition. The fatigue may worsen with physical or mental activity, but doesn’t improve with rest.” Because the root of the syndrome is unknown–and there’s not a proven test to diagnose it–those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome continue to search for effective ways to alleviate the symptoms.
Where Does Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Come From?
There are many theories that attempt to answer what causes chronic fatigue syndrome, but there is yet to be one underlying cause upon which the medical community can agree. Some of the theories include hormonal imbalances, viral infections and issues with the immune system. Still, there hasn’t been enough conclusive evidence to attribute chronic fatigue syndrome to one root cause.
What are the Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
The following symptoms are widely accepted as being associated with chronic fatigue syndrome, including loss of memory or concentration, sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes, muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, light/unrefreshing sleep, extreme exhaustion after exercise and, of course, general fatigue. Also note that Fibromyalgia is considered by some to also be a symptom, but some medical professionals argue Fibromyalgia is a different condition all together.
Those who suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome report these symptoms being constant, which impacts their ability to maintain certain lifestyles and engage in certain activities without being in pain and/or becoming exhausted afterward. Therefore, suffers search for ways to treat and lessen the symptoms they’re experiencing.
Treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with Massage
Because the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome affect those who have it persistently, treatment is anything that (in a healthy way) seeks to provide comfort. Massage therapy can help to alleviate joint and muscular pain associated with chronic fatigue syndrome, providing relief and comfort well after your massage. Massage therapy can help increase blood flow, which can reduce pain and aches, including headaches and sore areas. A regular treatment of massage therapy–weekly or monthly–can help you get on a routine and find relief from some of the symptoms commonly associated with chronic fatigue syndrome.
