Burlington and Hamilton Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Burlington and Hamilton ladies, this article is for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Spinal Care Clinic is very familiar with these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic male and female patients. Spinal Care Clinic is aware of 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 Burlington and Hamilton back pain.


Spinal Care Clinic marvels at the connections researchers make! Researchers have described how grip strength is a sign 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 associated. Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another matter is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor quality of life as far as mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort dimensions(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) Spinal Care Clinic finds these tests interesting for Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients and is quite drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Burlington and Hamilton 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 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 have low back pain. (4) Spinal Care Clinic does many tests during the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic examination; now you know why! Spinal Care Clinic doesn’t want to miss anything!
