Richmond Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Richmond ladies, this one’s for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Johnson Chiropractic knows these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Richmond chiropractic male and female patients. Johnson Chiropractic is aware of the differences but focuses on a fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues including Richmond back pain.


Johnson Chiropractic is amazed at the connections researchers make! 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 connected. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor quality of life as far as mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort aspects(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 declines(3) Johnson Chiropractic finds these tests interesting for Richmond chiropractic patients and is really drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about Richmond 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 performed muscle-strengthening exercise at least 3 days a week. Women who had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more likely to experience low back pain. (4) Johnson Chiropractic does many tests as part of the Richmond chiropractic examination; now you know why! Johnson Chiropractic does not want to miss a thing!
