I know, I know, I’m a broken record with hydration reminders and especially for my Tucson studio clients. This is important though.
Back pain and Muscle aches are often caused by dehydration.
Even mild dehydration can bring on pain.
When Back pain or muscles aches come on, drink 2 to 3 glasses of water immediately.
Many factors can cause dehydration; including, certain medications and high temperatures. In our extreme desert temperatures, it’s even more vital to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Try drinking a glass of water a half hour before meals. In addition to staying well hydrated, drinking a glass of water 20 to 30 minutes before your meal aids digestion.
Consider starting your day with a few glasses of water. I like to mix things up by adding a few teaspoons of fresh lemon juice or a few sliced cucumbers.
