In today's day and age almost everyone can be seen on their mobile phones. A teenager texting, a middle aged lady playing Candy Crush or a bored passenger playing Angry Birds. While it sure is entertaining to use, it poses a risk to your fingers and wrist on account of the angle these tasks require you to hold the phones, especially in the long run.
Other than pain caused by using your fingers, sometimes you may just have weak fingers. Not susceptible to breaking, but with a terrible grip – which is as bad.
A little exercise can take you a long way, and here are a few of them.
Use of a Hand Therapy Ball
Playing with putty or clay is a great way to increase the range of motion in your fingers and strengthen your hands at the same time, all while going back to your childhood. The best part is that it won't even feel like exercise. Just follow the kids' lead -- squish the clay into a ball, roll it into long "snakes" with your palms, or use your fingertips to pinch spikes on a dinosaur. All of these are various form of physical therapy, believe it or not!
If you believe that these aren't helping, then the best thing for you to do is go to a physical therapist, who will undoubtedly help you figure out what your ailment is, and might just beat your high scores.
