Fort Wayne ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Of
course! Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC recognizes these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Fort Wayne chiropractic male and
female patients. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC realizes the
differences but highlights in this article a
fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including Fort Wayne back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC marvels at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have verified
how grip strength is a sign 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 indicates anemia. (1) Another matter
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 ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC finds these
tests interesting for Fort Wayne chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Fort Wayne 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 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC does many tests during the Fort Wayne chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC doesn’t want to miss a thing!
