Our care for fatigue symptoms

What you need to know about fatigue

Fatigue fundamentally differs from mere tiredness. Tiredness stems from a long day’s work or rigorous exercise, whereas fatigue is characterized by persistent lethargy, low energy, and a diminished tolerance for stimuli. Crucially, fatigue is often not alleviated by rest; sleep does not cure it because the issue often lies deeper. The brain may be overwhelmed by excessive information, might process information less efficiently, or struggle with filtering it appropriately.

Such conditions frequently arise following a concussion, burnout, whiplash, or illness. When the brain is tasked with processing more than it can manage, it becomes overloaded, leading to enduring fatigue. This overload leaves “no space” in the brain for the execution of everyday activities, contributing to the feeling of exhaustion.

Hence, our therapy aims to recalibrate the balance, adjusting the volume of information the brain processes to align with its handling capacity.

How we treat fatigue

We address a form of fatigue that stems from neurological issues, distinguishing it from other types of fatigue through the Functional Neurological Examination (FNE). This examination helps us identify the specific brain areas and functions implicated in your symptoms.

Following the examination, we embark on a week of intensive therapy, focusing on enhancing the coordination and synchronization between various brain regions and neurons. Throughout this week, we employ a diverse array of technologies and exercises designed to engage and stimulate your brain in multiple ways.

This approach has proven highly effective, yet it is demanding. It is crucial for you to understand the commitment required and be prepared to dedicate your full attention to the treatment process.

Your road to recovery

One week of intensive treatment

Step 1

The Functional Neurological Examination (FNE)

You share your symptoms with us, prompting us to ask relevant questions and conduct a thorough Neurological Examination. This process allows us to assess whether our treatment is well-suited to your needs.

Step 2

Advanced Machine Testing (quantification)

Based on Step 1, we determine what tests are necessary to quantify the underlying cause of the symptoms. To do this, we use a range of computer-controlled equipment.

Step 3

Rehabilitation week (in 5 days)

We address the problems. Through an individual program specifically tailored to your problems, we bring back function during an intensive week of treatment.

Step 4


After the 5-day intensive treatment week, we will give you homework assignments. These are exercises that further promote your recovery. We are happy to keep an eye on these developments with you.

What does ABC expect from you?

Our treatment for fatigue is most effective when done within a short period of time. This means that we offer therapy (rehabilitation) in the form of a full week of a variety of therapies. Within this intensive program, we do tests and training to bring back the balance between different parts of the brain.

Providing treatment within one week is integral to treatment success. Thus, it is not possible to offer them in phases. Therefore, if you want to work permanently on your recovery, we ask that you invest a full week.

We can imagine that you still have questions after seeing the website.
