New Roads ladies, this one’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Of
course! New Roads Chiropractic Center recognizes these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
injured states of our New Roads chiropractic male and
female patients. New Roads Chiropractic Center 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 including New Roads back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
New Roads Chiropractic Center is amazed at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is an indicator of an assortment
of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia affects 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 experienced poor
quality of life as far as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort dimensions. (2) A third hand-grip strength link
to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition declines. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center notices these
tests interesting for New Roads chiropractic
patients and is really drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about New Roads back pain!
GRIP STRENGTH AND BACK PAIN
Another connection is crafted 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 defined as low grip strength of the woman’s dominant hand.
A highly physical woman was described as one who performed
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) New Roads Chiropractic Center does many tests as
part of the New Roads chiropractic examination; now you know
why! New Roads Chiropractic Center does not want to miss anything!
