Tarrytown ladies, this article is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Tarrytown Chiropractic knows these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Tarrytown chiropractic male and
female patients. Tarrytown Chiropractic appreciates 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 Tarrytown back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Tarrytown Chiropractic is amazed at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have verified
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 connected.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor
quality of life as it concerns mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort aspects. (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 decreases; cognition declines. (3) Tarrytown Chiropractic finds these
tests interesting for Tarrytown chiropractic
patients and is really drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Tarrytown 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 tested 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 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 likely
to experience low back pain. (4) Tarrytown Chiropractic does many tests during the Tarrytown chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Tarrytown Chiropractic doesn’t want to miss anything!
