Largo 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! Hollstrom & Associates Inc is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Largo chiropractic male and
female patients. Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 including Largo back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Hollstrom & Associates Inc admires the connections
researchers create! Researchers have verified
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 associated.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced 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 declines; cognition declines. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc notices these
tests interesting for Largo chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Largo 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 classified 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 probable
to experience low back pain. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc does many tests as
part of the Largo chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Hollstrom & Associates Inc doesn’t want to miss a thing!
