West Palm Beach ladies, this one is
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Of
course! Chiropractic Care is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our West Palm Beach chiropractic male and
female patients. Chiropractic Care 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 like West Palm Beach back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Chiropractic Care marvels at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have verified
how grip strength is a sign 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 issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor
quality of life insofar as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort aspects. (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) Chiropractic Care finds these
tests interesting for West Palm Beach chiropractic
patients and is really drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about West Palm Beach 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 checked 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 described as one who did
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) Chiropractic Care does many tests during the West Palm Beach chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Chiropractic Care doesn’t want to miss a thing!
