Buffalo, NY ladies, this article is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Of
course! Disc Centers Of America is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Buffalo, NY chiropractic male and
female patients. Disc Centers Of America grasps 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 Buffalo, NY back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Disc Centers Of America is amazed at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is an indicator 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 issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced 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) Disc Centers Of America notices these
tests interesting for Buffalo, NY chiropractic
patients and is quite interested in what
hand-grip strength says about Buffalo, NY 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 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 probable
to have low back pain. (4) Disc Centers Of America does many tests during the Buffalo, NY chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Disc Centers Of America does not want to miss a thing!
