Chronic fatigue is now associated with cortisol level changes. This hormone is vital to overall health and body functions. Low cortisol levels can be caused by a misalignment of the upper cervical spine (C1 and C2 vertebrae). Head and neck injuries can easily cause such a misalignment even if the accident wasn’t serious.

Because of this, it is important to see an upper cervical chiropractor to determine if your chronic fatigue may be the result of a misalignment. Dr. Geoff Besso of Stow, Ohio has been specially trained to diagnose and correct such misalignments of the upper neck.
