Fort Wayne Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Fort Wayne ladies, this article’s for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Of course! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc recognizes these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Fort Wayne chiropractic male and female patients. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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 Fort Wayne back pain.


Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc marvels at the connections researchers make! Researchers have verified how grip strength is a sign of an assortment 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 indicates anemia. (1) Another matter is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor quality of life as far 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc finds these tests interesting for Fort Wayne chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Fort Wayne 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 defined 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more likely to experience low back pain. (4) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc does many tests during the Fort Wayne chiropractic examination; now you know why! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc doesn’t want to miss a thing!
