How Important Is Hydration For Our Health and Body?
When working out or engaging in strenuous sports activities it’s important to sufficiently hydrate ourselves in order to replenish the fluids lost when sweating. The same applies in the case of physical therapy. That is why your physical therapist is always reminding you to drink plenty of fluids. It is important to understand that hydration is vital when undergoing recovering physical therapy, as well as for muscle regeneration when exercising. Bellow we will further detail the importance of hydration in these instances:
The Soft Tissue Workout of Physical Therapy – People going
through physical therapy will always be advised to properly hydrate
because water enables the soft tissues’ ability to release
tension. A dehydrated soft tissue will bruise easier and suffer
regular muscle cramps. So, by sufficiently hydrating during therapy
sessions you will be making sure the fluids your tissues have lost
are being replenished, as well as helping alleviate the pain you
experience when doing routine daily activities.
Metabolic Waste – Your physical therapist or trainer will
assist you in alleviating tension and tightness in muscles that are
being caused by blockages in the muscle’s ability to move waste.
Therefore, by properly hydrating it will be easier for your body to
eliminate metabolic waste helping soothe the tightness and tension
from your muscles.

to make sure your body is healthy. Assuring your body’s daily
necessary fluids help it cool down, make blood, and many other
By having a regular exercise routine and sufficiently hydrating you will be able to better fight diseases and transport both waste and nutrients. These will in time lead to overall health and even prevent some diseases.
