Drinking Water To Reduce Back Pain
My chiropractor said I should drink more water to reduce back pain. The inner core of discs is made up of collagen and water. When you don't drink enough water, the inner core shrinks which reduces its shock absorbing capability. I try to drink a 1/2 gallon of plain water a day. On colder days, I drink more tea than plain water. I've been doing this for over a month. It seems to help.
