Slide show: Hand exercises for people with arthritis
Fist stretch
Previous Next 3 of 6 Fist stretch

Start by holding your hand and fingers straight and close together, as if for a handshake — with your forearm, wrist and hand resting on a tabletop or other flat surface. Close your fingers into a gentle fist, wrapping your thumb around the outside of your fingers. Don't squeeze. Moving slowly and smoothly, return your hand to the starting position and then repeat the exercise multiple times on each hand.
