Millville Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Millville 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! Wilson Family Chiropractic is very familiar with these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Millville chiropractic male and female patients. Wilson Family Chiropractic realizes the differences but highlights in this article a fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues including Millville back pain.


Wilson Family Chiropractic admires the connections researchers create! Researchers have documented how grip strength is an indicator of an assortment of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia affects 13.9% of elderly people. Hand-grip strength and anemia in women is inversely associated. Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another matter is that women with low hand-grip strength report 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 decreases; cognition declines(3) Wilson Family Chiropractic finds these tests interesting for Millville chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about Millville 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 defined as low grip strength of the woman’s dominant hand. A highly physical woman was defined 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 likely to experience low back pain. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic does many tests as part of the Millville chiropractic examination; now you know why! Wilson Family Chiropractic doesn’t want to miss anything!
