Pflugerville Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Pflugerville ladies, this article’s for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Pflugerville Wellness Center knows these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Pflugerville chiropractic male and female patients. Pflugerville Wellness Center realizes the differences but focuses on a fascinating finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues including Pflugerville back pain.


Pflugerville Wellness Center admires the connections researchers create! Researchers have documented how grip strength is an indicator 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 connected. 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 connection to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition declines(3) Pflugerville Wellness Center finds these tests interesting for Pflugerville chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Pflugerville back pain!


Another connection is formulated 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 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center does many tests during the Pflugerville chiropractic examination; now you know why! Pflugerville Wellness Center does not want to miss anything!
