Hand exercises can help improve joint flexibility and range of motion in people who have arthritis. Start by holding your hand and fingers straight and close together. Bend the end and middle joints of your fingers. Keep your knuckles straight. Moving slowly and smoothly, return your hand to the starting position. If you can, perform multiple repetitions of this exercise on each hand.
