Chiropractic Vacaville CA Dehydration And Back Pain

It has been said that 70% of the body is made up of H2O or water. Having as small as a 2% decrease in the fluid can already make you feel constipated, itchy, woozy, and generally rotten all over. It is sensible that remaining hydrated is important and healthy. Drinking a significant amount of water can help ensure that our bladder and kidneys flush toxins out of our bodies. Plus, it can aid our bodies in digesting food. With all these factors in mind, it can prevent the onset of headaches, joint aches, and muscle pain.

Water Is Important To Your Spinal Well-Being In Vacaville CA

So, what does this have to do with your vertebrae? It's quite a lot as it turns out. Water is known as the stuff of life - and of spinal well-being. Since our bodies consist of 70% water, the same ratio can also be found in the discs that cushion the vertebrae in the spinal column. Dehydration has not always been brought up when talking about the spinal column but a large factor of it contributes to herniated and slipped discs.

A decrease in the disc water content is linked to spinal disc degeneration and deterioration. When the discs break down, your fibrous outer ring will form cracks and can lead the disc to fluid loss. The inner core will grow weaker as it shrinks and will be put under more strain until concerns grow to be ripe for the disc to bulge or herniate.

The right amount of water that is considered to be enough is still up for serious discussion. However, you should put into consideration the provided "rule" that at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water, or 64 ounces of water in total should be drank daily. It is known more as a "guideline" though because the total amount your system may require is greatly based on your gender, weight, activity level, and environment amongst other reasons.

But there is another more straightforward approach to drinking water. If you're dehydrated, don't think twice about drinking a glass of water. Even if you're not thirsty but you're starting to experience a few signs and symptoms of minor dehydration, drink a glass of water anyways. The beneficial thing about drinking enough water is that your urine will likely be clear or pale yellow. Be cognizant that your urine will be darker first thing in the morning, after a meal, or when you take water-soluble vitamins like riboflavin.

When your body is properly hydrated, your spinal discs can reabsorb fluids while you sleep at night. Along with that, a number of adults with back pain and discomfort have experienced relief with the help of spinal decompression. This allows the fluid to soak into the spongy interior of the disc so that proper healing and support will be going into your spine. With that, there's no doubt that water is the backbone of life and that it will ensure good health for your vertebrae.
