Exercises for the Hands and Fingers


1.Make a Fist

Hand and finger exercises can help strengthen your hands and fingers, increase your range of motion, and give you pain relief. Stretch only until you feel tightness. You shouldn’t feel pain. Start with this simple stretch:

Make a gentle fist, wrapping your thumb across your fingers.
Hold for 30 to 60 seconds. Release and spread your fingers wide.
Repeat with both hands at least four times.


2.Finger Stretch

Try this stretch to help with pain relief and to improve the range of motion in your hands:

Place your hand palm-down on a table or other flat surface.
Gently straighten your fingers as flat as you can against the surface without forcing your joints.
Hold for 30 to 60 seconds and then release.
Repeat at least four times with each hand.
