Preston Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Preston ladies, this article is for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Of course! Chiropractic Associates recognizes these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various injured states of our Preston chiropractic male and female patients. Chiropractic Associates realizes 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 Preston back pain.


Chiropractic Associates admires the connections researchers create! Researchers have verified how grip strength is an indicator 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 suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor quality of life as it concerns mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort aspects(2) A third hand-grip strength connection to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases(3) Chiropractic Associates notices these tests interesting for Preston chiropractic patients and is very interested in what hand-grip strength reveals about Preston 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 described as one who did 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) Chiropractic Associates does many tests during the Preston chiropractic examination; now you know why! Chiropractic Associates doesn’t want to miss anything!
