New Roads Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

New Roads ladies, this one’s for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Of course! New Roads Chiropractic Center recognizes these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various injured states of our New Roads chiropractic male and female patients. New Roads Chiropractic Center realizes 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 New Roads back pain.


New Roads Chiropractic Center is amazed at the connections researchers make! 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 associated. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced 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 capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition declines(3) New Roads Chiropractic Center notices these tests interesting for New Roads chiropractic patients and is really drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about New Roads back pain!


Another connection is crafted 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 described as one who performed 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 probable to experience low back pain. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center does many tests as part of the New Roads chiropractic examination; now you know why! New Roads Chiropractic Center does not want to miss anything!
