Movement Matters. Don't Ignore Your Back Pain

DON’T WAIT OUT THE PAIN!

HOW TO MAKE HYDRATION A HABIT

These concerns can develop as a result of a myriad of environmental issues, such as having poor posture, prolonged sedentary activity, car crash, sporting accident, stress, heavy lifting, and so on. When it comes to back pain, don’t wait! When you experience an injury to your back, or realize that you are experiencing regular pain as a result of an ongoing injury or overuse, it is important to find out the cause of your back pain as quickly as possible. Back pain can quickly become chronic, as a potentially small issue can become complicated when it is not addressed early on. Working with a back pain specialist can help you to identify the difference between environmental causes and something more medically based.

Many people are too busy with summer plans to pause for a snack, let alone water break, to the point where one may forget to quench their thirst; however, it’s important to stay hydrated as it can help you maintain your energy and focus and keep your body healthy. Try these simple ways to stay hydrated this summer: 1. Always carry a water bottle. If you have a bottle within arm’s reach, it’s very likely that you’ll mindlessly sip from it throughout the day, without having to make a conscious effort. 2. When you’re feeling frazzled, grab a glass of cold water. Studies show that people instantly feel more alert after drinking H2O. 3. Sip on a mug of herbal tea every evening. If you make this a habit, you’ll add an extra cup of fluid to your body every single day. 4. Eat a diet rich in whole foods. By eating foods like vegetables, fruits, and yogurt, you’ll automatically increase your fluid intake. Also, as aging impairs the body’s natural thirst mechanisms, it is especially important for elderly adults to drink water to avoid becoming dehydrated. These tips should make hydration a habit in your life.
