Doing these hand exercises to the best of your ability may help with dexterity, range of motion and hand function. Try soaking your hands in warm water or wrap them in a warm towel before starting, to loosen and relax your fingers and joints.*†

*Remember to talk with your doctor before starting any exercise program to make sure the exercises are safe for you, especially if you are experiencing a flare.
Not advised if experiencing joint flaring; speak to your doctor before applying heat.
