Montreal ladies, this article is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Montreal chiropractic male and
female patients. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is aware of 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 Montreal back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic admires the connections
researchers make! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is a sign 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 indicates anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor
quality of life insofar as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort dimensions. (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 declines; cognition decreases. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic finds these
tests interesting for Montreal chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength says about Montreal 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 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic does many tests as
part of the Montreal chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic does not want to miss anything!
