First of all, let me ask you this… How much water are you drinking throughout the day? Next question, do you know how much you need to drink for your body to function properly?
According to the Mayo Clinic, it is suggested to drink an average of 64 ounces (eight cups) of fluids per day.
If you are not drinking enough fluids to replenish your body it can lead to serious health risks. Since your body is about 60% water by weight, you MUST hydrate to prevent problems, prevent muscle spasms, and allow body processes to operate normally.
Here at Coastal Chiropractic and Wellness, we strongly believe in taking action in preventative care. Just as we advise our patients to keep up with chiropractic adjustments, to exercise, and to eat well; we also strongly encourage the importance of staying hydrated and drinking enough water.
Dehydration affects every aspect of your wellness, even your spine.
As a person ages, grows less active, or most commonly has a minor or major injury to the spine that has gone unaddressed, the loss of spinal fluid can lead to disc degeneration and the eventual loss of motion between vertebral discs. Once this mobility is lost, further degeneration occurs more rapidly and the cycle of dehydration, shrinking, chronic pain and disease accelerate.
How to ensure you are staying hydrated throughout your day:
Already feeling some back pain from being dehydrated throughout the years? No problem.
