Oxford ladies, this one is
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike
issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Of
course! Satterwhite Chiropractic is very familiar with these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Oxford chiropractic male and
female patients. Satterwhite Chiropractic realizes the
differences but focuses on an interesting discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including Oxford back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Satterwhite Chiropractic is amazed at 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 connected.
Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor
quality of life as it concerns mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort aspects. (2) A third hand-grip strength connection
to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic notices these
tests interesting for Oxford chiropractic
patients and is very drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Oxford 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 have low back pain. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic does many tests during the Oxford chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Satterwhite Chiropractic does not want to miss a thing!
