Carrolltown Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Carrolltown ladies, this one’s for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Of course! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recognizes these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Carrolltown chiropractic male and female patients. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation grasps the differences but highlights in this article a fascinating finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues like Carrolltown back pain.


Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation admires the connections researchers make! 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 report poor quality of life as far as mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort aspects(2) A third hand-grip strength link to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition declines(3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation finds these tests interesting for Carrolltown chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about Carrolltown back pain!


Another connection is made 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 defined 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 have low back pain.
