Williamson ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Of
course! Apple Country Chiropractic knows these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Williamson chiropractic male and
female patients. Apple Country Chiropractic grasps the
differences but highlights in this article a
fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Williamson back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Apple Country Chiropractic 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 related.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor
quality of life insofar as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort dimensions. (2) A third hand-grip strength link
to health is its ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic finds these
tests interesting for Williamson chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Williamson 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 classified 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 have low back pain. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic does many tests during the Williamson chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Apple Country Chiropractic doesn’t want to miss a thing!
