Malverne 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! Malverne Health & Wellness recognizes these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Malverne chiropractic male and
female patients. Malverne Health & Wellness is aware of the
differences but highlights in this article a
fascinating finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like Malverne back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Malverne Health & Wellness admires the connections
researchers create! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is a sign 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 related.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor
quality of life as far as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort aspects. (2) A third hand-grip strength link
to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition declines. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness finds these
tests interesting for Malverne chiropractic
patients and is really interested in what
hand-grip strength reveals about Malverne 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 defined as low grip strength of the woman’s dominant hand.
A highly physical woman was defined 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 have low back pain. (4) Malverne Health & Wellness does many tests as
part of the Malverne chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Malverne Health & Wellness does not want to miss a thing!
