Pensacola Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Pensacola ladies, this one is for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center recognizes these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various injured states of our Pensacola chiropractic male and female patients. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is aware of the differences but focuses on a fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues like Pensacola back pain.


Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center marvels at the connections researchers create! Researchers have verified 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 related. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor quality of life as it concerns 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 decreases; cognition declines(3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center notices these tests interesting for Pensacola chiropractic patients and is really interested in what hand-grip strength says about Pensacola 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 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 have low back pain. (4) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center does many tests as part of the Pensacola chiropractic examination; now you know why! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center doesn’t want to miss anything!
