Lateral finger exercises

Post by Garron »

Hi,

I'm often hurting the lateral tendons in my fingers (i.e. the ones that move your finger side to side). Does anyone know some exercises to improve the strength and or stability for this?

Thanks,
Garron

Get yourself 2 finger putties. One soft and one stiff.

Then Google how to do finger exercises with putty or get back to me on this post. Finger putty changed my life.

I got putty from https://vertigogear.co.za which took a day to be delivered. It was cheaper in to get from here https://www.mediotronics.co.za but the process was a lot slower.
There is lots of google advice on how to use the stuff.

Thanks!

Excellent news that you found some. Goodluck with the exercises, recovery and strengthening. Soon your fingers will be better than ever.

Remember to wash your hands before using it, then it lasts longer (stays cleaner).
