3 Consequences of Dehydration


Vital Energy Wellness and Chiropractic Center Inc specializes in Chiropractic Care in Arvada, CO — but that’s not all we do. We also provide weight and nutritional counseling as well as mental and behavioral health services. It’s a part of our comprehensive wellness package we offer our patients.

A big part of performing at optimum capacity is staying hydrated throughout the day. Medical Daily threw out an interesting number, that 75% of the population suffers from chronic dehydration. Whether the actual number is that high or not, the truth is, a lot of us aren’t getting enough water out there.

Below are a few health consequences you’ll experience if you’re low on H2O. 

1.) Joint Pain

This is a big one and it’s particularly related to chiropractic care. We always recommend to our patients to drink the requisite amount of water — which is 1/2 your body weight in ounces, by the way. Around 80% of your cartilage composition is made up of water, and they become directly compromised when you’re not getting enough water.

2.) Lack of H2O is Bad for Your Back

Dehydration affects the discs of your spinal column, which gives way to a condition you don’t want to experience: herniated disc.

3.) Dehydration Lowers Your Energy Levels

In our current grind culture where many folks have to keep side hustles just to be prosperous, who can really afford to be functioning anything but their best out there in this competitive world. Dehydration will disrupt the heart’s ability to pump blood that spreads oxygen to the body’s cells, making it hard to achieve physical and mental wellness.

So, next time you’re thirsty, make it a water. And if you stay hydrated and still experience back or joint pain, contact Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc to schedule your consultation. We have a successful track record of getting (and keeping) our patients active.
