La Grande ladies, this one’s
for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different
issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows these
differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various
hurting states of our La Grande chiropractic male and
female patients. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC grasps the
differences but highlights in this article a
fascinating finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health
issues including La Grande back pain.
GRIP STRENGTH AND HEALTH
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is amazed at the connections
researchers create! Researchers have documented
how grip strength is a sign 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 connected.
Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another issue
is that women with low hand-grip strength faced 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 ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults
over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases. (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC notices these
tests interesting for La Grande chiropractic
patients and is quite interested in what
hand-grip strength reveals about La Grande 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 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 have low back pain. (4) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC does many tests during the La Grande chiropractic examination; now you know
why! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC does not want to miss anything!
