Malverne Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Malverne 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! Malverne Health & Wellness recognizes these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Malverne chiropractic male and female patients. Malverne Health & Wellness is aware of 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 Malverne back pain.


Malverne Health & Wellness admires the connections researchers create! Researchers have documented 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 suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced 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) Malverne Health & Wellness finds these tests interesting for Malverne chiropractic patients and is really interested in what hand-grip strength reveals about Malverne 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 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 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 likely to have low back pain. (4) Malverne Health & Wellness does many tests as part of the Malverne chiropractic examination; now you know why! Malverne Health & Wellness doesn’t want to miss a thing!
