Did you know that your spine ages everyday and that over time that leads to back pain?
Recently Brain World Magazine caught up with Dr. Noam Sadovnik B.S, B.S, D.C., founder and director of Chiropractic and Physical Rehabilitation at The Center located in New York City. Dr. Sadovnik and his team of certified professionals focus on “musculoskeletal hygiene” to eliminate existing conditions and prevent future ones. He implements advanced healthcare technologies with tried and trusted chiropractic techniques to provide attractive alternatives to surgery and heavy pain medications.
Along with chiropractic and physical rehabilitation, the Center also offers services in holistic psychiatry, clinical nutrition, integrative medicine, dermatology and skin care, therapeutic massage, acupuncture, and pain management. “We find that people and doctors like the idea of everything being offered at one place. It makes communication that much easier between patient and doctors,” says Sadovnik during our sit down at his spacious and relaxing offices in the Flatiron district of New York City.
Dr. Sadovnik sees patients everyday who are battling lower back pain. He says most of these patients don’t understand how diet, lifestyle and even water can lead to lower back pain and that most of this back pain from our aging spine can be prevented.
For instance, did you know 70 percent of our spine is made up of water? One of the reasons people have lower back pain is because their spine is dehydrated. A dehydrated spine also accelerates our aging process. Roughly 75% of the population is dehydrated. But do you know how to determine how much water you should drink a day? Dr. Sadovnik told us the formula for figuring this out and many other important bits of information which BW is happy to share with you in two videoclips.
The first video of our interview with Dr. Sadovnik is all about the problems of spinal aging. Dehydration, blood sugar, the differences between chronic and acute back pain. The second video is about solutions: how to determine the amount of water you should drink daily, how diet affects the health of your spine, how to create a work environment that is better on your back and how specific exercises can prevent back pain.
Your body has its own built in alarm system which is called pain and Dr. Sadovnik says you can thank your BRAIN for providing this perception.
