Can Water Help Chronic Pain?

By January 22, 2010

There has been a lot of discussion lately in the chronic pain forum about the healing properties found in a glass of water. As it turns out, some research suggests that dehydration may exacerbate the symptoms of some chronic conditions, including headaches and back pain. So perhaps the "water cure" isn't so far fetched.

About.com's Guide to nutrition wrote a great article about dehydration and back pain. As it turns out, there is evidence in favor of this so-called treatment. It is certainly an interesting read, and provides lots of food for thought. Maybe we shouldn't always be so quick to reach for the ibuprofen: a glass of water might just do the trick!

Chronic pain opiate narcotics are effective but very dangerous, should be taken in moderation and prescribed by a physician, medications such as Darvocet, hydrocodone, Lortab, Vicodin, Norco, Percocet, OxyContin, are even more commercial and very useful for people with diseases like fibromyalgia, chronic pain, Parkinson’s, arthritis, arthrosis, should be restricted and controlled, said the FDA does not allow them the freedom to market.

This is a really similar idea that I was speaking with my sister about last night, I think its really cool and have found some really quality help. Perhaps this can aid some of you as well. Let me know if this is worth it to anyone else like it was for me. Enjoy!
