Millville ladies, this article is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Wilson Family Chiropractic is very familiar with these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Millville chiropractic male and
female patients. Wilson Family Chiropractic 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 Millville back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Wilson Family Chiropractic admires the connections
researchers create! Researchers have documented
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 associated.
Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor
quality of life insofar as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort aspects. (2) A third hand-grip strength connection
to health is its ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition declines. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic finds these
tests interesting for Millville chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Millville 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 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 defined 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 experience low back pain. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic does many tests as
part of the Millville chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Wilson Family Chiropractic doesn’t want to miss anything!
