LIVE from the Combined Sections Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, Jenna Kantor, SPT guest hosts and interviews Brianne Showman Brown on hydration. Dr. Brianne Showman Brown has been a licensed physical therapist since 2006. Since that time, she has been helping active adults and athletes get back to the activities they love. As ideas and theories in rehabilitation, functional movement, and nutrition are constantly changing, she is constantly searching for the new information in order to get you back to the activities you love as quickly (but safely) as possible.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The physical and mental effects of not consuming enough water throughout the day

-Physical therapy setting and productivity requirements and their implications on water consumption

-How to fit water breaks into your day and busy patient schedule

-Increased water consumption results in more bathroom visits?

-And so much more!

 

Relying on your thirst signal for your body’s need for water is surprisingly not accurate as Brianne states, “By the time your body even tells you to drink water, you’re already passed that point of being dehydrated.”

 

For our body to function at the most optimal, Brianne stresses, “All of our organs need water to function.”  

 

Being chronically dehydrated leads to poor performance because, “If you’re so dehydrated, your body is going to shut down what it has to in order to keep you alive.”

Dr. Brianne Showman Brown has been a licensed physical therapist since 2006. Since that time, she has been helping active adults and athletes get back to the activities they love.

As ideas and theories in rehabilitation, functional movement, and nutrition are constantly changing, she is constantly searching for the new information in order to get you back to the activities you love as quickly (but safely) as possible.

Being a CrossFitter and runner herself, she also understands the desire to want to push through the pain, not wanting to take time off, and wanting to get back to activity as soon as possible when required to take time off. She does her best to keep you active in the things you are able to do, modifying as necessary, but not taking you completely out of the gym, off the track/field, or off the road.
