Buffalo, NY Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Buffalo, NY 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. Of course! Disc Centers Of America is very familiar with these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Buffalo, NY chiropractic male and female patients. Disc Centers Of America grasps 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 Buffalo, NY back pain.


Disc Centers Of America is amazed at the connections researchers create! Researchers have documented how grip strength is an indicator of a variety 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 dimensions(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 declines; cognition declines(3) Disc Centers Of America notices these tests interesting for Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients and is quite interested in what hand-grip strength says about Buffalo, NY 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 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 probable to have low back pain.
