Sandy Springs Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Sandy Springs ladies, this one’s for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Cross Chiropractic Center is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various injured states of our Sandy Springs chiropractic male and female patients. Cross Chiropractic Center is aware of the differences but focuses on an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues like Sandy Springs back pain.


Cross Chiropractic Center is amazed at the connections researchers create! Researchers have documented 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 faced 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 declines(3) Cross Chiropractic Center finds these tests interesting for Sandy Springs chiropractic patients and is quite drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Sandy 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 defined 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 probable to have low back pain. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center does many tests as part of the Sandy Springs chiropractic examination; now you know why! Cross Chiropractic Center does not want to miss a thing!
