Healthy spinal discs = a healthy back.
Normal vertebral discs are 88% water and lose water during the day as you move.
Staying hydrated throughout the day is essential for maintaining the height of each disc so it can function properly.
- Keep a glass of water near your bed and drink before you get up in the morning.
- Aim to drink before you feel thirsty. If you wait, you may already be dehydrated.
- Avoid sports drinks. Instead drink water when exercising and then when you’re
done, eat a healthy snack like orange slices or a banana.
- Have water constantly available to you throughout the day. Keep a water bottle on
your desk/your work station so you can top up your glass throughout the day and carry a bottle of water with you when you are on the go.
