Preston ladies, this article is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Of
course! Chiropractic Associates recognizes these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Preston chiropractic male and
female patients. Chiropractic Associates realizes the
differences but highlights in this article a
fascinating finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Preston back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Chiropractic Associates admires the connections
researchers create! Researchers have verified
how grip strength is an indicator of a variety
of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia bothers 13.9% of elderly
people. Hand-grip strength and anemia in women is inversely associated.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor
quality of life as it concerns mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort aspects. (2) A third hand-grip strength connection
to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases. (3) Chiropractic Associates notices these
tests interesting for Preston chiropractic
patients and is very interested in what
hand-grip strength reveals about Preston back pain!
GRIP STRENGTH AND BACK PAIN
Another connection is made among
back pain, hand-grip strength and a woman’s physical activity level in an
over-50-year-old woman. Researchers tested the hand-grip strength
of women. Each hand was tested with a dynamometer tool. Low hand-grip strength
was classified as low grip strength of the woman’s dominant hand.
A highly physical woman was described as one who did
muscle-strengthening exercise at least 3 days a week. Women who tested
with low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable
to experience low back pain. (4) Chiropractic Associates does many tests during the Preston chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Chiropractic Associates doesn’t want to miss anything!
