Richmond ladies, this one’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Of
course! Johnson Chiropractic knows these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Richmond chiropractic male and
female patients. Johnson Chiropractic is aware of 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 including Richmond back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Johnson Chiropractic is amazed at the connections
researchers make! 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 connected.
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 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 declines; cognition declines. (3) Johnson Chiropractic finds these
tests interesting for Richmond chiropractic
patients and is really drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Richmond 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 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) Johnson Chiropractic does many tests as
part of the Richmond chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Johnson Chiropractic does not want to miss a thing!
