Staying Hydrated in South Florida

West Palm Beach, Fl is known all over America for its beautiful beaches, exciting attractions, and great weather. The locals know West Palm Beach for its brutal year-round heat. Staying hydrated while enjoying all the fun activities south Florida has to offer is very important for your overall health, but it is also important for your spinal health.

The spine can only draw water and nutrients through osmosis and a process called imbibition. Imbibition occurs when the motion between vertebral discs acts as a pump to move fluids in and out of the discs. Essentially spinal health depends on regular exercise and movement. The desk-bound routines that many of us have, only exacerbate this problem.

Spinal discs are slower to heal compared to the rest of the body. While many chiropractic patients have swift pain-relief and reduced symptoms, it can take weeks or even months for the discs to truly heal.

To maintain spine health, exercise often, drink plenty of water daily and remember to have regular visits with your chiropractor. If you are concerned about your spinal health or even have general health concerns, the doctors at Renewed Wellness can help.
