West Des Moines ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa recognizes these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our West Des Moines chiropractic male and
female patients. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa realizes the
differences but focuses on a
fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues like West Des Moines back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa admires the connections
researchers make! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is an indicator of a variety
of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia affects 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 report poor
quality of life as far as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort dimensions. (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 decreases; cognition declines. (3) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa finds these
tests interesting for West Des Moines chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about West Des Moines 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 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa does many tests as
part of the West Des Moines chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa does not want to miss a thing!
