The fingers must be exercised every day to help promote strength, flexibility and joint health. Exercising the fingers and hands encourages dexterity and agility, strength and coordination. A few minutes a day is all it takes, but it offers long-lasting benefits.
Try this Isolation & Strength Exercise:
Place your right hand palm-side down on a flat surface. Raise only your thumb, keeping your remaining fingers firmly on the table. Now place your thumb down on the table and repeat the move with your index finger. Hold the finger as high as you can without pain or discomfort, and then lower it. Repeat the same lifting process with the middle finger, the ring finger and the pinkie or little finger.
This exercise helps strengthen individual muscles found in the finger, as well as the ligaments and tendons that join them to the hand. It also increases agility, especially in those diagnosed with arthritis. Perform the same set of exercises on the left hand. You can repeat this exercise set several times a day to help build strength, relieve tension and improve coordination.
