Plymouth Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Plymouth ladies, this one’s for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology knows these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Plymouth chiropractic male and female patients. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology appreciates the differences but focuses on an interesting discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues like Plymouth back pain.


Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology admires the connections researchers make! Researchers have described how grip strength is a sign 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 indicates anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength faced poor quality of life as it concerns mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort dimensions(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 declines; cognition decreases(3) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology finds these tests interesting for Plymouth chiropractic patients and is quite drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Plymouth 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable to experience low back pain.

Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology does not want to miss a thing!
