Paramus Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Paramus 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! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center recognizes these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various injured states of our Paramus chiropractic male and female patients. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center appreciates 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 Paramus back pain.


Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is amazed at the connections researchers make! Researchers have described 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 associated. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another matter 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 decreases; cognition declines(3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center finds these tests interesting for Paramus chiropractic patients and is very interested in what hand-grip strength reveals about Paramus 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 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 likely to experience low back pain.

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center doesn’t want to miss anything!
