Fort Wayne Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

January 15, 2019

Fort Wayne ladies, this one is for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Of course! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is very familiar with 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 is aware of the differences but highlights in this article an interesting finding 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 create! Researchers have verified how grip strength is an indicator 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 connected. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced 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 capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition declines(3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc finds these tests interesting for Fort Wayne chiropractic patients and is very interested in 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 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.
