Toronto Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Toronto ladies, this article’s for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Naturally! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre recognizes these differences when it comes to treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Toronto chiropractic male and female patients. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre realizes the differences but highlights in this article a fascinating discovery about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues including Toronto back pain.


Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre marvels at the connections researchers make! Researchers have described how grip strength is a sign 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 matter is that women with low hand-grip strength faced 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre finds these tests interesting for Toronto chiropractic patients and is really drawn to what hand-grip strength reveals about Toronto 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. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre does many tests as part of the Toronto chiropractic examination; now you know why! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre doesn’t want to miss a thing!
