135 Possible Causes for Grip Strength Decreased

  • Osteoporosis

    Patients 65 years had lower 25OHD, lower maximum grip strength, and lower BMD.[] The osteoporosis risk in postmenopausal women with a maximum grip strength 20 kg and who were 65 years was significantly elevated.[] Handgrip strength and 25OHD decrease with aging in postmenopausal women. The patients with lower 25OHD level had significantly lower BMD of femoral neck.[]

  • Radial Nerve Palsy

    Ten adult volunteers had radial nerve blocks and their strengths were quantitatively evaluated before and after blocking for grip, key pinch, isolated thumb adduction (adduction[] Mid- arm All below Numbness, paresthesia , pain along lateral posterior arm All below Wrist drop Paralysis or weakness of the hand and finger extensors ( decreased grip strength[] All composite motions that required stabilization of the wrist or thumb showed marked weakness after the radial nerve block (grip decreased 77%, key pinch decreased 33%, and[]

  • Tennis Elbow

    Four weeks after the treatment, the Botox group had smaller decrease in pain (P 0.02) but greater decrease in grip strength (P 0.01).[] The patient may also feel a decrease in grip strength and feel pain in when grasping or picking up objects.[] Also reports are emerging that decreasing grip strength and relaxing forearm muscles in the follow-through phase of the back- hand stroke can help prevent “Tennis Elbow” in[]

  • Radial Tunnel Syndrome

    Some of the symptoms of Radial Tunnel Syndrome include: Pain that worsens when rotating the wrist Outer elbow tenderness Decreased ability to grip Loss of strength in the[]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    You can also experience weakness in the hands, clumsiness, decreased grip strength, and difficulty in doing tasks where you need manual dexterity.[] Decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual tasks.[] Decreased grip strength can lead to frequent dropping of objects from the hand. Occasionally, sharp shooting pains can be felt in the forearm.[]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Grip strength and pinch strength as well as gross dexterity and fine dexterity were assessed. All four performance measures decreased significantly (p  0.001).[]

  • De Quervain Tenosynovitis

    Impairments include pain over the first compartment of the wrist, decreased wrist and finger ROM and joint mobility, decreased grip strength, and difficulty grasping objects[] Patients typically report painful abduction of the thumb and decreased grip strength. [4] The most common cause is chronic overuse.[] […] in grip strength. 1 - 4 Characteristics of de Quervain tenosynovitis are shown in Figure 1 .[]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    Grip strength demonstrated a 465% increase on the right upper extremity and a 25% increase on the left upper extremity.[] Loss of motor strength, sensory changes, wasting of the intrinsic muscles of the hand , and spasticity may dramatically decrease upper extremity function and the condition[] Lose fine fingertip and grip strength. 19.[]

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    The main function of the palmar fascia is to increase grip strength; thus, over time, Dupuytren's contracture decreases a person's ability to hold objects.[]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    Case series. To describe the management of 7 patients with grade 1 cervical compressive myelopathy attributed to herniated disc using intermittent cervical traction and manipulation of the thoracic spine. Intermittent cervical traction has been indicated for the treatment of patients with herniated disc and has[…][]
