Williamson Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Williamson ladies, this article’s for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Of course! Apple Country Chiropractic knows these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various injured states of our Williamson chiropractic male and female patients. Apple Country Chiropractic grasps the differences but highlights in this article a fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues like Williamson back pain.


Apple Country Chiropractic marvels at the connections researchers create! Researchers have verified how grip strength is a sign of a variety of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia bothers 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 experienced poor quality of life insofar 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 declines; cognition decreases(3) Apple Country Chiropractic finds these tests interesting for Williamson chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Williamson 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 probable to have low back pain. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic does many tests during the Williamson chiropractic examination; now you know why! Apple Country Chiropractic doesn’t want to miss a thing!
