Manahawkin ladies, this one’s
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Of
course! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Manahawkin chiropractic male and
female patients. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center realizes the
differences but focuses on an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including Manahawkin back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center marvels at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have verified
how grip strength is an indicator of a variety
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 indicates anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor
quality of life insofar as 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center notices these
tests interesting for Manahawkin chiropractic
patients and is really interested in what
hand-grip strength says about Manahawkin 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 defined as one who did
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 experience low back pain. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center does many tests as
part of the Manahawkin chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center doesn’t want to miss a thing!
