Montreal Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Montreal ladies, this article is for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have unlike issues to deal with when it involves their bodies. Naturally! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Montreal chiropractic male and female patients. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is aware of 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 including Montreal back pain.


Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic admires the connections researchers make! Researchers have documented 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 associated. Low hand-grip strength indicates 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 dimensions(2) A third hand-grip strength link to health is its ability to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases(3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic finds these tests interesting for Montreal chiropractic patients and is very drawn to what hand-grip strength says about Montreal 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 had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more probable to have low back pain. (4) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic does many tests as part of the Montreal chiropractic examination; now you know why! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic does not want to miss anything!
