How We Help Grip Strength

Have you ever noticed that your grip strength isn't what it used to be? Maybe you struggle to open jars or hold onto objects for an extended period. While it might seem like a minor inconvenience, weakened grip strength can have far-reaching consequences beyond just making daily tasks more challenging. In fact, research has shown that low grip strength is correlated with lower life expectancy and reduced quality of life.

But the good news is that chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to addressing neck pain, poor posture, and grip strength issues, with therapies like myofascial therapy and red light therapy (low-level laser therapy) playing a crucial role in providing relief and restoring strength to your hands.

What Leads to Poor Grip Strength

Neck pain and poor posture often go hand in hand, leading to tension and misalignments in the cervical spine. When the muscles of the neck are tight and the spine is out of alignment, it can create a domino effect that impacts the entire musculoskeletal system, including the hands and wrists. As a result, your grip strength diminishes over time, making it difficult to perform even simple tasks that require hand strength.

But weakened grip strength is more than just an inconvenience – it's also a significant predictor of overall health and longevity. Research has shown that low grip strength is associated with a higher risk of mortality, as well as a lower quality of life. This is because grip strength is a reliable indicator of overall muscle strength and function, as well as cardiovascular health and resilience.

Relieve Tension in Neck and Shoulders to Improve Grip Strength

Fortunately, our chiropractic care offers a comprehensive solution to address neck pain, poor posture, and grip strength issues. Through gentle spinal adjustments, we realign your cervical spine, relieve tension in the muscles of your neck and shoulders, and improve nerve function to your hands and wrists. This not only helps alleviate neck pain and improve posture but also enhances grip strength and hand function.

In addition to spinal adjustments, we also incorporate complementary therapies like home traction therapy (which can save you thousands of dollars),  myofascial therapy,  and red light therapy to further support the healing process. Myofascial therapy focuses on releasing tension and adhesions within the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds and supports the muscles. By addressing restrictions in the fascia, myofascial therapy can help improve mobility, alleviate pain, and enhance muscle function in your hands and wrists.

Therapies to Improve Grip Strength

Red light (and infrared light) therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy, utilizes specific wavelengths of light to penetrate deep into the tissues, stimulating cellular repair and reducing inflammation. This non-invasive treatment can help accelerate the healing process, relieve pain, and improve overall function in the hands and wrists, promoting better grip strength and hand dexterity.

We don’t muck about. If you’re losing hand strength you need help and the best approach we’ve found addresses both the structural and functional aspects of neck pain, poor posture, and grip strength issues. Our chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to healing that goes beyond just symptom management.
