Groton ladies, this article is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Of
course! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Groton chiropractic male and
female patients. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is aware of the
differences but focuses on an interesting discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Groton back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office marvels at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have documented
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 experienced poor
quality of life insofar as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort dimensions. (2) A third hand-grip strength connection
to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition declines. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office finds these
tests interesting for Groton chiropractic
patients and is really interested in what
hand-grip strength says about Groton 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 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 tested
with low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable
to experience low back pain. (4) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office does many tests during the Groton chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office doesn’t want to miss a thing!
