Manchester ladies, this one is
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is very familiar with these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Manchester chiropractic male and
female patients. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries realizes the
differences but focuses on an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Manchester back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is amazed at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have verified
how grip strength is a sign of a variety
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 indicates anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor
quality of life as it concerns mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort dimensions. (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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries notices these
tests interesting for Manchester chiropractic
patients and is really interested in what
hand-grip strength says about Manchester 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 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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries does many tests during the Manchester chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries doesn’t want to miss anything!
