Pensacola ladies, this one is
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center recognizes these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Pensacola chiropractic male and
female patients. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is aware of the
differences but focuses on a
fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Pensacola back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center marvels at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have verified
how grip strength is an indicator 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 issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor
quality of life as it concerns 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 decreases; cognition declines. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center notices these
tests interesting for Pensacola chiropractic
patients and is really interested in what
hand-grip strength says about Pensacola 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 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 likely
to have low back pain. (4) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center does many tests as
part of the Pensacola chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center doesn’t want to miss anything!
