Toronto ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre recognizes these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our Toronto chiropractic male and
female patients. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre realizes the
differences but highlights in this article a
fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including Toronto back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre marvels at the connections
researchers make! Researchers have described
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 related.
Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter
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 link
to health is its ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre finds these
tests interesting for Toronto chiropractic
patients and is really drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Toronto 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 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 probable
to experience low back pain. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre does many tests as
part of the Toronto chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre doesn’t want to miss a thing!
