Lynchburg ladies, this one’s
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Palmer Chiropractic Center is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Lynchburg chiropractic male and
female patients. Palmer Chiropractic Center grasps the
differences but highlights in this article an interesting discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including Lynchburg back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Palmer Chiropractic Center is amazed at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have described
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 associated.
Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor
quality of life as far as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort aspects. (2) A third hand-grip strength connection
to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition decreases. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center notices these
tests interesting for Lynchburg chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Lynchburg 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 checked 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 likely
to have low back pain. (4) Palmer Chiropractic Center does many tests during the Lynchburg chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Palmer Chiropractic Center doesn’t want to miss anything!
