Early Signs of Osteopenia

Weak Grip Strength

Another indicator of bone density is the grip strength. In certain studies, scientists have found out that low strength of the handgrip might indicate low bone mineral density. The risk of vertebral fracture is higher when grip strength decreases as well. However, keep in mind that many other factors and physical activities can affect your weak grip strength. Fortunately, you would change it with exercises. Most weight-bearing drills can help improve bone mineral density at the forearm and wrist. If you notice any weakness related to your grip strength, make sure to consult your healthcare provider to get proper advice.[2]
