Ottawa ladies, this article’s
for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different
issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows these
differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various
injured states of our Ottawa chiropractic male and
female patients. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider grasps the
differences but highlights in this article an interesting discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including Ottawa back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider admires the connections
researchers make! Researchers have described
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 associated.
Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another matter
is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor
quality of life as far as mobility, usual
activities and pain/discomfort aspects. (2) A third hand-grip strength link
to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition decreases. (3) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider notices these
tests interesting for Ottawa chiropractic
patients and is really drawn to what
hand-grip strength reveals about Ottawa back pain!
GRIP STRENGTH AND BACK PAIN
Another connection is formulated among
back pain, hand-grip strength and a woman’s physical activity level in an
over-50-year-old woman. Researchers tested 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider does many tests during the Ottawa chiropractic examination; now you know
why! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider doesn’t want to miss a thing!
