Baton Rouge ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Of
course! Spine & Sports Rehab Center is very familiar with these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Baton Rouge chiropractic male and
female patients. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is aware of the
differences but highlights in this article a
fascinating finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Baton Rouge back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Spine & Sports Rehab Center is amazed at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have described
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 indicates anemia. (1) Another issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength faced 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 capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center notices these
tests interesting for Baton Rouge chiropractic
patients and is really drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Baton Rouge 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 defined 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 have low back pain. (4) Spine & Sports Rehab Center does many tests as
part of the Baton Rouge chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Spine & Sports Rehab Center doesn’t want to miss a thing!
