Hand and Finger Injuries – Intrinsic Muscle Strengthening

Have you sustained a hand or finger injury, whether it’s a minor sprain by jamming it or something more serious like an annular pulley ligament tear? After letting the injury heal enough, then you need to work on strengthening the intrinsic hand muscles.

Start with the forearm vertically with the fingers pointing straight up. Keep your wrist straight and avoid bending it by bracing it with your other hand. Then perform finger flexion with your “MCP joints” or the knuckle joints of your index to pinky fingers. Do 3 sets of 30 reps daily.

If you’re unsure about the exercise or have any uncertainty about where you’re at with the recovery of your hand or fingers, consult your local Physiotherapist before continuing.
