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
Grab a stress ball and squeeze it 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!
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 with both of your hands.
