Dehydration can effect any or all parts of the body-especially the spine, inter-vertebral joints, and their disk structure. Hydraulic properties of water stored in the disk core as well as other parts of the musculoskeletal system, are indeed dependent upon adequate hydration. Contact surfaces in the spinal vertebrae require water for its lubricating property. The disc core within the intervertebral space also contains water---and supports the compression weight of the upper body. Dr. Batmanghelidj states, "Fully 75 percent of the weight of the upper body is supported by the water volume that is stored in the disc core-25 percent is supported by the fibrous materials around the disc." The 5th lumbar is affected in the majority of cases. Water appears to be a universal lubricating agent for all joints through an intermittent vacuum effect.

The water is then dispersed by pressure brought about by joint movement. Factors involved in relieving back pain are: specific exercise to enhance the uptake of water into the disc space through a vacuum effect; correct posture; regular chiropractic adjustments. Neck pain is also exacerbated by dehydration. Adequate hydration and exercise will help establish adequate circulation, and a vacuum within the disc spaces.
