Did you know that most joint surfaces are covered in hyaline, a very smooth cartilage that is mostly water. Maintain proper hydration and functional joint strength around your major weight-bearing joints, and you’ll have taken some definitive steps towards joint longevity. A simple glass of water can have the power to protect your body’s structure.
Have you or someone you know suffered from Sciatica pain? Spinal discs can range anywhere from 70 to 90% water! Drinking plenty of pure water can keep you from having spinal problems by protecting your discs. The discs of your spine space the bones, and well-hydrated discs provide enough room for delicate nerve roots to reach your muscles, allowing your spine to function at its best.
When being seen for sciatica or back pain, we may consider the nutritional components of your inflammation. Since intervertebral discs are up to 90% water, hydration may very well be something we will want to address with you.
Another plus is that water is an inexpensive way to take care of your body.
