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 contend with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Moses Chiropractic recognizes these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various injured states of our West Palm Beach chiropractic male and female patients. Moses Chiropractic realizes 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 like West Palm Beach back pain.


Moses Chiropractic marvels at the connections researchers make! Researchers have documented how grip strength is a sign 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 related. Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength report 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 declines; cognition decreases(3) Moses Chiropractic finds these tests interesting for West Palm Beach chiropractic patients and is very interested in what hand-grip strength reveals about West Palm Beach 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 classified 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 likely to experience low back pain.
