San Jose Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

San Jose ladies, this one is for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Chiropractic Solutions is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various injured states of our San Jose chiropractic male and female patients. Chiropractic Solutions realizes the differences but highlights in this article an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues including San Jose back pain.


Chiropractic Solutions admires the connections researchers make! Researchers have described how grip strength is a sign 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 related. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue 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 capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases(3) Chiropractic Solutions finds these tests interesting for San Jose chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength says about San Jose back pain!


Another connection is made 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 defined as one who did muscle-strengthening exercise at least 3 days a week. Women who had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable to experience low back pain. (4) Chiropractic Solutions does many tests as part of the San Jose chiropractic examination; now you know why! Chiropractic Solutions does not want to miss a thing!
