Fort Wayne Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Fort Wayne ladies, this one’s for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is very familiar with these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various injured states of our Fort Wayne chiropractic male and female patients. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic realizes the differences but focuses on an interesting discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues like Fort Wayne back pain.


Aaron Chiropractic Clinic admires the connections researchers create! Researchers have verified how grip strength is an indicator of an assortment of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia affects 13.9% of elderly people. Hand-grip strength and anemia in women is inversely connected. Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another matter is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor quality of life insofar 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 decreases(3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic notices these tests interesting for Fort Wayne chiropractic patients and is very interested in what hand-grip strength reveals about Fort Wayne 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 did 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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic does many tests during the Fort Wayne chiropractic examination; now you know why! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic does not want to miss a thing!
