Severna Park Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Severna Park ladies, this one is for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Of course! Back And Neck Care Center recognizes these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Severna Park chiropractic male and female patients. Back And Neck Care Center 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 Severna Park back pain.


Back And Neck Care Center marvels at the connections researchers create! Researchers have verified how grip strength is a sign of a variety of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia bothers 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 report poor quality of life as far as mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort aspects(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 decreases(3) Back And Neck Care Center notices these tests interesting for Severna Park chiropractic patients and is quite interested in what hand-grip strength says about Severna Park back pain!


Another connection is made 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 defined as one who did 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. (4) Back And Neck Care Center does many tests as part of the Severna Park chiropractic examination; now you know why! Back And Neck Care Center doesn’t want to miss anything!
