Water is the secret to keeping our joints active


With the return to the office after the long vacation period, side effects due to the excessive use of technology – pc, tablet and smartphone – such as back pain and severe neck soreness are felt. In addition to the canonical remedies to prevent pain such as positioning the PC at eye level, using a tablet holder, maintaining a correct posture and taking short breaks to get up and walk, hydration can be the winning weapon in helping us to defeat the pangs due to immobility.

Being able to count on a good level of hydration, in fact, is an essential condition to keep the discs of the spinal column flexible. «Our joints are made up of a large amount of water which helps to cushion and lubricate them when we make even the smallest movement. – explains the professor Alessandro Zanasiexpert ofSanpellegrino Observatory and member of the International Stockholm Water Foundation – It is therefore necessary to drink a lot of water and keep hydrated to preserve the right amount of synovial fluid, which is responsible for lubricating the joints during movement. Furthermore, we must not underestimate the fact that many hours spent in front of a screen, without interruption and therefore without drinking, can also have negative effects on cognitive abilities, reducing concentration and causing severe headaches ».

Therefore, drinking adequately can not only help stimulate the production of synovial fluid, but it can also help the regeneration of cartilage and its lubrication, reducing joint inflammation and helping us in the moments we make – even the simplest – after long hours. pass by sitting and statically.

“It is therefore important to interrupt with short and frequent breaks the hours we spend sitting, busy using our technological devices, going to drink at least one glass of water every hour. Always keeping a glass at hand, on the desk in the office as well as at home, is therefore an excellent habit to avoid dehydration and help our body in even the simplest movements », concludes Zanasi.
