Colorado Springs ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Colorado Springs chiropractic male and
female patients. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR realizes the
differences but focuses on a
fascinating finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Colorado Springs back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR admires the connections
researchers make! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is a sign 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 related.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength faced 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 declines. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR notices these
tests interesting for Colorado Springs chiropractic
patients and is quite drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Colorado Springs 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 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more likely
to have low back pain. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR does many tests as
part of the Colorado Springs chiropractic examination; now you know
why! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR does not want to miss anything!
