Why Hydration Is Important To Your Spine

Water. We know that it is a vital part of our health and wellbeing. You probably already knew that adequate hydration promotes optimal organ function, good digestion, healthier skin, and even encourages a healthy weight, but did you know it is also vital for good spine health? Just as the rest of your body needs water to function properly, so does your spine. When you don’t drink enough water, and become dehydrated (even mildly) it can create problems, some of them painful. Not only does drinking water rehydrate the body, but it also has a variety of health benefits. Chiropractic care by Dr. Penn, combined with drinking adequate amounts of water each day, can lead to optimal health and wellness so that you feel your very best every day for many years to come. Generally, here are few benefits of drinking water: Sleep better Studies show that lack of hydration during the night can affect the amount of deep restorative sleep. For people who are not hydrating well over a long period of time, this diminished sleep quality and quantity will affect cognitive, emotional, and cardiovascular health Dryness of the mouth and nasal passage, leg cramps due to dehydration can disturb your sleep, which is why drinking fluids before bed is a good idea. Decreases Muscle Cramping Have you ever been woken from a deep sleep with cramps in your legs or feet? Have you had to stop in the middle of a workout because of cramping? A lot of muscle cramping can be attributed to lack of water intake. It is essential that you stay hydrated daily to prevent muscle cramping. Especially if you work out regularly, be sure to drink water before, during, and after a workout to keep muscles properly hydrated. Constipation Relief Constipation is a digestive condition characterized by difficulty in passing stool and unpredictable bowel evacuation. Doctors often recommend more fluid intake as a treatment solution. So, taking plenty of water reduces the risk. Therefore, whether you are targeting to prevent or treat constipation, you won’t go wrong with taking several glasses of water. Healthy Skin The secret to enjoying a healthier skin is not using expensive skin care products but taking plenty of water. While skincare products are designed to work externally, the problem is often internally. You need to drink more water to moisturize the skin and keep wrinkles away. Aids in Weight Loss Drinking water can be very beneficial for losing weight. Essentially, water in the stomach can trick the body into feeling full so that you are less tempted to snack or eat more at meal times. Replacing soda or other carbonated drinks with water can keep calories down and increase weight loss. Keep headaches at bay One of the first things you might notice when you’re dehydrated is a throbbing headache. The good news? If dehydration is the cause, it should go away shortly after you drink a large glass of water. Improves Health and Wellness Both chiropractic care from Pinpoint Chiropractic and wellness and drinking lots of water daily can improve how you look and feel. Chiropractic care focuses on spinal health and proper nerve communication so that the body can function at top levels of health. Combining chiropractic care and drinking enough water can prevent injuries, decrease sickness, and increase your health. Pleasant Breath Have you ever moved close to a group of marathoners who are being interviewed immediately after competing? This is because the possibility of bad breath coming from their mouths is high. The unpleasant smell is because of dehydration. This also applies when you sweat after a workout. You need enough water to flush off oral bacteria and food deposits that are responsible for a smelly mouth. In conclusion... There are so many science-based facts that support the benefits of drinking water. What’s clear is that you need this precious fluid to live healthily. It’s your primary defense line. If you had made a resolution to live healthier this year, it starts with learning to drink more water. It’s one of those resolutions that never disappoints.
