Severna Park ladies, this one is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Of
course! Back And Neck Care Center recognizes these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Severna Park chiropractic male and
female patients. Back And Neck Care Center is aware of the
differences but highlights in this article an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including Severna Park back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Back And Neck Care Center marvels at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have verified
how grip strength is a sign 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 far as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort aspects. (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 decreases; cognition decreases. (3) Back And Neck Care Center notices these
tests interesting for Severna Park chiropractic
patients and is quite interested in what
hand-grip strength says about Severna Park 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 defined as low grip strength of the woman’s dominant hand.
A highly physical woman was defined 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 have low back pain. (4) Back And Neck Care Center does many tests as
part of the Severna Park chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Back And Neck Care Center doesn’t want to miss anything!
