Auburn ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. recognizes these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Auburn chiropractic male and
female patients. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. appreciates the
differences but highlights in this article an interesting discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Auburn back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is amazed at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have described
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 related.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor
quality of life insofar as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort dimensions. (2) A third hand-grip strength connection
to health is its ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. notices these
tests interesting for Auburn chiropractic
patients and is very interested in what
hand-grip strength says about Auburn 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 classified as low grip strength of the woman’s dominant hand.
A highly physical woman was described 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 probable
to experience low back pain. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. does many tests during the Auburn chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. doesn’t want to miss anything!
