Drink Plenty of Water for healthy spine ….

Spine is very important part of body and very complex structure too , now a days problems related to spine growing like anything , degeneration in early age is one of the major issue which create more complication over a period of time .

Most commonly affected structure of spine due to degeneration is intervertebral disc. Over time, these repeated daily movements like standing , sitting , bending  and minor injuries can add up and begin to affect the discs in your spine. Minor injuries to the disc may occur and not cause pain at the time of the injury.
With degenerative disc disease, the main problem lies within one or more of the intervertebral discs. Intervertebral disc is a soft disc like structure between each of the vertebra in your spine. The intervertebral discs are designed to absorb pressure and keep the spine flexible by acting as cushions during body movement. The discs are similar to shock absorbers. Without the cushion effect of the discs, the vertebrae in your spine would not be able to absorb stresses, or provide the movement needed to bend and twist. Bones cannot sustain high stress repeatedly without being damaged. Much of the mechanical stress of everyday movements is transferred to the discs.

A healthy intervertebral disc has a great deal of water in the nucleus pulposus – the center portion of the disc. The water content gives the nucleus a spongy quality and allows it to absorb spinal stress. Excessive pressure or injuries to the disc can cause the injury to the annulus – the outer ring of tough ligament material that holds the vertebrae together. Generally, the annulus is the first portion of the disc that seems to be injured. Small tears show up as in the ligament material of the annulus. These tears heal by scar tissue. The scar tissue is not as strong as normal ligament tissue. Over time, as more scar tissue forms, the annulus becomes weaker. Eventually this can lead to damage of the nucleus pulposus. The nucleus begins to lose its water content due to the damage – it begins to dry up.

Because of water loss, the discs lose some of their ability to act as a cushion. This can lead to even more stress on the annulus and still more tears as the cycle repeats itself. As the nucleus loses its water content it collapses, allowing the two vertebrae above and below to move closer to one another. This results in a narrowing of the disc space between the two vertebrae. As this shift occurs, the facet joints located at the back of the spine are forced to shift. This shift changes the way the facet joints work together and can cause problems in the facet joints as well.

Bone spurs, sometimes called osteophytes, may begin to form around the disc space. These bones spurs can also form around the facet joints. This is thought to be due to the body’s response to try to stop the excess motion at the spinal segment. The bone spurs can become a problem if they start to grow into the spinal canal and press into your spinal cord and nerves. This condition is called spinal stenosis

It is vitally important to drink plenty of water as part of a healthy diet to nourish the entire body, which is comprised of about 60% to 70% water. Drinking water to stay well hydrated allows nutrients to travel to the major organs in the body, helps remove waste and helps protect joints and organs.

So Water is also very  important for the spine and back. As  intervertebral discs consist largely of water (at birth, discs are about eighty percent water, although this usually declines with age). Therefore, keeping the body well hydrated by drinking water regularly is important to nourish the spinal discs and help keep them healthy.

Healthy Weight Gain for Teenagers

Some teenagers have difficulty keeping up with the energy needs of their bodies and may be underweight. The reason for this may be

  • They are growing taller
  • Exercising a lot with sports
  • Might simply have a high metabolism
  • Eating less according to the body requirement
  • Any stress or eating disorder
  • May not be getting balanced nutrition. He may not be getting enough vitamins, minerals (such as iron and calcium), protein, or dietary fat for a healthy body. For example, a growing teen needs plenty of calcium and vitamin D to make strong bones.

You can help your teen by these simple ways

  • Add butter to food.For example, at breakfast, spread a generous amount of butter toast, or an egg sandwich. At lunch and dinner, use butter on chapatti or in dal & veggies .
  • Use whole fat dairy productssuch as whole milk, full fat or regular cheese and yogurt instead of skim, reduced fat, or low fat dairy products. For example, at breakfast suggest that your teen have a glass of whole milk with his meal or with cereal or oatmeal. Or can have a glass of fullcream milk in evening ½ hr  before going to play.
  • Modify Cooking: cook more healthy food , add salads , fruits , and dry fruits in cooking like extra dry fruits in rice , salad dressing with nuts and cream , chapatti with some stuffing and veggies with some dressings .
  • Use “Extras”:try to add few extra calories in the form of small snacks like muffin , cookies , nuts, ice-cream, shakes .etc
  • Maximize Portions:You may wonder how much food to offer your teen at meals and snacks. Paying attention to portions is a great idea for weight gain. First, think about how much your teen eats for most of his meals and snacks. Slowly try to increase the overall volume of food at each meal, starting with one meal. For example, try adding one food item to a typical breakfast. Add some fruit to cereal and milk. Then try increasing the amount of cereal. Make sure you switch to whole milk.
  • Batter to give home made food : Avoid preserve or packed food , cook fresh and serve . avoid any packed drinks instead give home made shakes and fruit juice
  • Never compare : Never compare your kid with other siblings or any friends kids , every one is different and always concentrate individual health concerns without comparing
  • Do not force : It’s okay to encourage your teen to finish his meal or snack, but do not force him to eat or to clean his plate. Prepare meals with high energy/calorie food and keep the volume of food normal.
  • It’s a great idea to offer a second helping of any food that your teen enjoys with a meal. For example, if he loves mashed potatoes, an extra scoop is great. If he is super thirsty at lunch, it’s fine for him to have another glass of juice, whole milk, or lemonade. If he is particularly hungry after school, give him an extra snack or double the snack portion.
  • Eating on a schedule: Encourage your teen to eat three meals each day and three snacks in the mid-morning, afternoon, and evening before bedtime.
  • Don’t focus on food always: Be sure that food and nutrition doesn’t take up all your time and thoughts. Thinking and talking about good nutrition is key when trying to encourage weight gain but remember to have discussions about school, sports, current events, and feelings with your teen.

When Should  meet  any specialists?

  • A Dietitian (sometimes called a nutritionist): if your teen is underweight , feeling loss of energy after any physical activity , complain always  for leg pain and lethargy , feel difficult to getup in morning . prominent Acne and skin changes , loss of hair and dandruff .
  • A counselor or psychologist : who specializes in working with teens may be helpful with goal setting and providing help with any anxiety related to food and health. Consult if there is any eating disorder , constant decrease in performance , any behavioral change you notice which is seems to be very abnormal .
