Sitka ladies, this one is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is very familiar with these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Sitka chiropractic male and
female patients. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka grasps the
differences but highlights in this article a
fascinating finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Sitka back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka marvels at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have described
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 associated.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue
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 link
to health is its ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition declines. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka notices these
tests interesting for Sitka chiropractic
patients and is really drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Sitka back pain!
GRIP STRENGTH AND BACK PAIN
Another connection is formulated 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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka does many tests as
part of the Sitka chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka doesn’t want to miss anything!
