Ashburn ladies, this article is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Ashburn chiropractic male and
female patients. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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 like Ashburn back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is amazed at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is an indicator of an assortment
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 issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor
quality of life insofar 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 decreases. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn finds these
tests interesting for Ashburn chiropractic
patients and is very interested in what
hand-grip strength reveals about Ashburn 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 defined as one who did
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 likely
to experience low back pain. (4) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn does many tests as
part of the Ashburn chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn doesn’t want to miss a thing!
