Best Exercises to Improve Finger Dexterity and Hand Movement.

Here are some ways that you can improve your hand movement and dexterity at home.

1. Grab a squeeze ball

If you have ever been to any kind of event where free swag has been given out, then you probably have an extra stress squeeze ball somewhere. Give one of these balls a squeeze and hold your grip for a couple of seconds before releasing. Repeat this for 10-12 reps and then repeat with your opposite hand.

2. O Exercise

Touch your index finger to your thumb, forming an O. Now, repeat this with your middle finger, ring finger, and pinky. Once you have made it to your pinky, work your way back up to your index finger.

3. Switching fingers

Lay your palm flat on a surface. Raise your thumb up while keeping your palm flat on the table. If you need to, use your other hand to help raise it further and hold for 10 seconds. Feel the stretch at the base of your finger. Proceed to do this with each finger for a couple of reps each.

4. Playing games with string

When you were a child, you might have played games with string, such as Jacob’s Ladder or Cat’s Cradle. This is a great way to give your hands and fingers a workout. All you need is some string/yarn and you are ready to go!

5. Stacking

You can do this exercise with most objects like lego blocks or coins, start by grabbing a handful of coins and stack the one at a time. Try stacking them as high as you can or work on stacking them by size. Do this exercise on both your hands.
