Why It Is Important To Be Hydrated After Physical Therapy Treatments

Have you ever wondered why your body can sometimes cramp up hours after you have gone through a rigorous exercise regimen? It is because excessive sweating, such as the kind of sweating you do when you work out, causes a drop in blood volume. If you do not drink water to replace the fluids you lost and the increase the production of blood, then the drop in blood causes muscle cramps and other problems that normally occur if you do not hydrate yourself properly after a workout.
