Pflugerville ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Pflugerville Wellness Center knows these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Pflugerville chiropractic male and
female patients. Pflugerville Wellness Center 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 including Pflugerville back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Pflugerville Wellness Center admires the connections
researchers create! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is an indicator 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 connected.
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 dimensions. (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) Pflugerville Wellness Center finds these
tests interesting for Pflugerville chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Pflugerville 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 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 experience low back pain. (4) Pflugerville Wellness Center does many tests during the Pflugerville chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Pflugerville Wellness Center does not want to miss anything!
