Carrolltown ladies, this one’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Of
course! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recognizes these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Carrolltown chiropractic male and
female patients. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation grasps 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 Carrolltown back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation admires the connections
researchers make! Researchers have described
how grip strength is an indicator of an assortment
of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia bothers 13.9% of elderly
people. Hand-grip strength and anemia in women is inversely related.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter
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 declines. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation finds these
tests interesting for Carrolltown chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Carrolltown 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 defined 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 have low back pain. (4) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation does many tests during the Carrolltown chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation does not want to miss a thing!
