Tonawanda Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Tonawanda ladies, this article’s for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various injured states of our Tonawanda chiropractic male and female patients. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation appreciates the differences but focuses on an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues like Tonawanda back pain.


Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation admires the connections researchers create! Researchers have documented 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 connected. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor quality of life insofar as 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 decreases; cognition decreases(3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation notices these tests interesting for Tonawanda chiropractic patients and is really drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Tonawanda 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 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 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 likely to experience low back pain. (4) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation does many tests during the Tonawanda chiropractic examination; now you know why! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation does not want to miss a thing!
