Manahawkin Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Manahawkin ladies, this one’s for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have different issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Of course! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various injured states of our Manahawkin chiropractic male and female patients. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center realizes the differences but focuses on an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues including Manahawkin back pain.


Manahawkin Chiropractic Center marvels at 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 connected. 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 link to health is its ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength decreases; cognition declines(3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center notices these tests interesting for Manahawkin chiropractic patients and is really interested in what hand-grip strength says about Manahawkin back pain!


Another connection is formulated among back pain, hand-grip strength and a woman’s physical activity level in an over-50-year-old woman. Researchers checked 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more likely to experience low back pain. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center does many tests as part of the Manahawkin chiropractic examination; now you know why! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center doesn’t want to miss a thing!
