Manchester Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Manchester ladies, this one is for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike issues to contend with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is very familiar with these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various injured states of our Manchester chiropractic male and female patients. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries 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 like Manchester back pain.


Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is amazed at the connections researchers make! Researchers have verified how grip strength is a sign of a variety of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia affects 13.9% of elderly people. Hand-grip strength and anemia in women is inversely related. Low hand-grip strength indicates anemia. (1) Another matter is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor quality of life as it concerns mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort dimensions(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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries notices these tests interesting for Manchester chiropractic patients and is quite interested in what hand-grip strength says about Manchester 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 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 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.

Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries doesn’t want to miss anything!
