St. Francisville ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Of
course! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville recognizes these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
injured states of our St. Francisville chiropractic male and
female patients. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville realizes 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 St. Francisville back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville marvels at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have verified
how grip strength is an indicator of a variety
of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia affects 13.9% of elderly
people. Hand-grip strength and anemia in women is inversely connected.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor
quality of life as it concerns 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 decreases; cognition decreases. (3) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville notices these
tests interesting for St. Francisville chiropractic
patients and is very interested in what
hand-grip strength reveals about St. Francisville 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable
to experience low back pain. (4) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville does many tests as
part of the St. Francisville chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville does not want to miss a thing!
