Fernandina Beach ladies, this article is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Fernandina Beach chiropractic male and
female patients. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is aware of the
differences but focuses on an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including Fernandina Beach back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic marvels at the connections
researchers make! 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 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 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 declines; cognition declines. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic finds these
tests interesting for Fernandina Beach chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Fernandina 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 tested 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 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic does many tests during the Fernandina Beach chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic does not want to miss a thing!
