Drink water to fight back pain

A very simple and cheap method that may help your back pain –

DRINK WATER

From a great little Spine Health  – Article

‘Your discs are made to lose water and then rehydrate, because the movement of your spine and gravity causes water to flow through your spine and be reabsorbed by the discs. If not enough water is available for the discs to absorb what they’ve lost, then it can’t function as it was meant to. Since most of the jelly inside the discs in your spine is made of water, it will shrink if not hydrated adequately. When it shrinks it will cause the outer layer to take on more of the stress of absorbing shock and supporting your spine. Eventually, this can cause swelling, pain and even a bulge or rupture in the disc’s outer shell – and believe me when I say that can be quite uncomfortable.’ – thejoint.com
