Nashua Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

January 15, 2019

Nashua ladies, this one is for you (and those who care about you!). Men and women have unlike issues to contend with when it involves their bodies. Of course! Moriarty Chiropractic recognizes these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Nashua chiropractic male and female patients. Moriarty Chiropractic 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 including Nashua back pain.


Moriarty Chiropractic admires the connections researchers make! Researchers have verified how grip strength is an indicator 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 connected. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter is that women with low hand-grip strength report poor quality of life insofar as 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) Moriarty Chiropractic finds these tests interesting for Nashua chiropractic patients and is really drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Nashua 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 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable to have low back pain. (4) Moriarty Chiropractic does many tests as part of the Nashua chiropractic examination; now you know why! Moriarty Chiropractic does not want to miss anything!
