Largo Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Largo ladies, this article is for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Hollstrom & Associates Inc is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various injured states of our Largo chiropractic male and female patients. Hollstrom & Associates Inc realizes 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 including Largo back pain.


Hollstrom & Associates Inc admires 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 associated. Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor quality of life insofar 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc notices these tests interesting for Largo chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about Largo 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 experience low back pain. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc does many tests as part of the Largo chiropractic examination; now you know why! Hollstrom & Associates Inc doesn’t want to miss a thing!
