Murfreesboro Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Murfreesboro ladies, this article’s for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Most Chiropractic Clinic knows these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Murfreesboro chiropractic male and female patients. Most Chiropractic Clinic grasps 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 Murfreesboro back pain.


Most Chiropractic Clinic marvels at the connections researchers make! Researchers have described how grip strength is a sign 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 report poor quality of life insofar as 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 declines; cognition declines(3) Most Chiropractic Clinic notices these tests interesting for Murfreesboro chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about Murfreesboro 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 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more likely to experience low back pain. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic does many tests during the Murfreesboro chiropractic examination; now you know why! Most Chiropractic Clinic doesn’t want to miss anything!
