Burlington and Hamilton ladies, this article is
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Spinal Care Clinic is very familiar with these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic male and
female patients. Spinal Care Clinic is aware of 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 Burlington and Hamilton back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Spinal Care Clinic 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 indicates anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor
quality of life as far as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort dimensions. (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 decreases; cognition declines. (3) Spinal Care Clinic finds these
tests interesting for Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic
patients and is quite drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Burlington and Hamilton 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 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 have low back pain. (4) Spinal Care Clinic does many tests during the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Spinal Care Clinic doesn’t want to miss anything!
