Baton Rouge ladies, this article is
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is very familiar with these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Baton Rouge chiropractic male and
female patients. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation grasps 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 Baton Rouge back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation admires the connections
researchers make! 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 associated.
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 ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition decreases. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation notices these
tests interesting for Baton Rouge chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Baton Rouge 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 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable
to have low back pain. (4) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation does many tests during the Baton Rouge chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation does not want to miss a thing!
