West Palm Beach ladies, this one is
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different
issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Moses Chiropractic recognizes these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
injured states of our West Palm Beach chiropractic male and
female patients. Moses Chiropractic realizes the
differences but highlights in this article an interesting finding 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
Moses Chiropractic marvels at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is a sign of an assortment
of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia affects 13.9% of elderly
people. Hand-grip strength and anemia in women is inversely related.
Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength report 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 capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition decreases. (3) Moses Chiropractic finds these
tests interesting for West Palm Beach chiropractic
patients and is very interested in what
hand-grip strength reveals about West Palm Beach 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 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 likely
to experience low back pain. (4) Moses Chiropractic does many tests during the West Palm Beach chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Moses Chiropractic doesn’t want to miss anything!
