St. Francisville Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

St. Francisville ladies, this article’s for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Of course! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville recognizes these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various injured states of our St. Francisville chiropractic male and female patients. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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 like St. Francisville back pain.


Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville marvels at the connections researchers create! Researchers have verified 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 suggests anemia. (1) Another matter is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor quality of life as it concerns 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 decreases; cognition decreases(3) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville notices these tests interesting for St. Francisville chiropractic patients and is very interested in what hand-grip strength reveals about St. Francisville 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 tested 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 performed muscle-strengthening exercise at least 3 days a week. Women who had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable to experience low back pain.
