Fort Wayne ladies, this one’s
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Of
course! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is very familiar with these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Fort Wayne chiropractic male and
female patients. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic realizes 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 Fort Wayne back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic admires the connections
researchers create! Researchers have verified
how grip strength is an indicator 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 connected.
Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor
quality of life insofar as 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 decreases. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic notices these
tests interesting for Fort Wayne chiropractic
patients and is very interested in what
hand-grip strength reveals about Fort Wayne 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 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 likely
to have low back pain. (4) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic does many tests during the Fort Wayne chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic does not want to miss a thing!
