Auburn Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Auburn ladies, this article’s for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. recognizes these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various injured states of our Auburn chiropractic male and female patients. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. appreciates the differences but highlights in this article an interesting discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues like Auburn back pain.


Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is amazed at the connections researchers create! Researchers have described how grip strength is an indicator 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 related. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor quality of life insofar as mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort dimensions(2) A third hand-grip strength connection to health is its ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases(3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. notices these tests interesting for Auburn chiropractic patients and is very interested in what hand-grip strength says about Auburn back pain!


Another connection is formulated 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable to experience low back pain. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. does many tests during the Auburn chiropractic examination; now you know why! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. doesn’t want to miss anything!
