San Jose ladies, this one is
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Chiropractic Solutions is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
injured states of our San Jose chiropractic male and
female patients. Chiropractic Solutions realizes the
differences but highlights in this article an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including San Jose back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Chiropractic Solutions admires the connections
researchers make! Researchers have described
how grip strength is a sign of an assortment
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 report 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 decreases; cognition decreases. (3) Chiropractic Solutions finds these
tests interesting for San Jose chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about San Jose back pain!
GRIP STRENGTH AND BACK PAIN
Another connection is made among
back pain, hand-grip strength and a woman’s physical activity level in an
over-50-year-old woman. Researchers tested 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 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 probable
to experience low back pain. (4) Chiropractic Solutions does many tests as
part of the San Jose chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Chiropractic Solutions does not want to miss a thing!
