Groton Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Groton ladies, this article is for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Of course! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Groton chiropractic male and female patients. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is aware of 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 Groton back pain.


Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office marvels at the connections researchers make! Researchers have documented how grip strength is a sign 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 related. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor quality of life insofar as mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort dimensions(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 declines; cognition declines(3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office finds these tests interesting for Groton chiropractic patients and is really interested in what hand-grip strength says about Groton 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 classified as low grip strength of the woman’s dominant hand. A highly physical woman was described as one who did 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 probable to experience low back pain.

Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office doesn’t want to miss a thing!
