Tarrytown Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Tarrytown ladies, this article is for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Tarrytown Chiropractic knows these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Tarrytown chiropractic male and female patients. Tarrytown Chiropractic appreciates the differences but highlights in this article an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues including Tarrytown back pain.


Tarrytown Chiropractic is amazed at the connections researchers create! Researchers have verified 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 connected. 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 decreases; cognition declines(3) Tarrytown Chiropractic finds these tests interesting for Tarrytown chiropractic patients and is really drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about Tarrytown 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 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 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 experience low back pain. (4) Tarrytown Chiropractic does many tests during the Tarrytown chiropractic examination; now you know why! Tarrytown Chiropractic doesn’t want to miss anything!
