Colorado Springs Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Colorado Springs ladies, this article’s for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various injured states of our Colorado Springs chiropractic male and female patients. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 like Colorado Springs back pain.


The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR admires the connections researchers make! Researchers have documented 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 related. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor quality of life as far as mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort aspects(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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR notices these tests interesting for Colorado Springs chiropractic patients and is quite drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about Colorado Springs 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 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 have low back pain. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR does many tests as part of the Colorado Springs chiropractic examination; now you know why! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR does not want to miss anything!
