Paramus 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! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center recognizes these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Paramus chiropractic male and
female patients. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center appreciates 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 Paramus back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is amazed at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have described
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 associated.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter
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 decreases; cognition declines. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center finds these
tests interesting for Paramus chiropractic
patients and is very interested in what
hand-grip strength reveals about Paramus 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 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 likely
to experience low back pain. (4) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center does many tests during the Paramus chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center doesn’t want to miss anything!
