Sandy Springs ladies, this one’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Cross Chiropractic Center is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Sandy Springs chiropractic male and
female patients. Cross Chiropractic Center is aware of 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 Sandy Springs back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Cross Chiropractic Center is amazed at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is a sign of a variety
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 matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor
quality of life as far as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort dimensions. (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 declines; cognition declines. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center finds these
tests interesting for Sandy Springs chiropractic
patients and is quite drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Sandy Springs 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 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 probable
to have low back pain. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center does many tests as
part of the Sandy Springs chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Cross Chiropractic Center does not want to miss a thing!
