West Palm Beach Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

West Palm Beach ladies, this one is for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Of course! Chiropractic Care is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our West Palm Beach chiropractic male and female patients. Chiropractic Care grasps the differences but highlights in this article an interesting discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues like West Palm Beach back pain.


Chiropractic Care 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 suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor quality of life insofar as mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort aspects(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) Chiropractic Care finds these tests interesting for West Palm Beach chiropractic patients and is really drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about West Palm Beach 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 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 have low back pain. (4) Chiropractic Care does many tests during the West Palm Beach chiropractic examination; now you know why! Chiropractic Care doesn’t want to miss a thing!
