Fernandina Beach Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Fernandina Beach ladies, this article is for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Fernandina Beach chiropractic male and female patients. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is aware of 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 including Fernandina Beach back pain.


Amelia Chiropractic Clinic marvels at the connections researchers make! Researchers have described how grip strength is an indicator of a variety 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 matter is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor quality of life as it concerns 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 declines; cognition declines(3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic finds these tests interesting for Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Fernandina 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 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 have low back pain.
