Do you ever notice that you suffer from severe lower back pain more in the summer than any other time of the year? Have you ever considered that maybe you weren’t getting the hydration needed for your body to properly function? Although it is recommended that we drink 64 ounces daily, we don’t always find ourselves meeting those numbers and when you mix the lack of water with high temperatures, the end result could lead to a very painful issue. As always, make sure that when you are outside and start feeling too hot that you take some time to cool off and rehydrate. Make sure to consult with your healthcare provider if you are having any symptoms that may or may not be related to dehydration.
