Thank you so much for these exercises, have more range of motion and strength in my fingers. Had broken little finger and ring finger which were pinned together for quite a while, wasn’t healing very well as I am a Type 1 Diabetic and needed a cast on for longer than usual. I have little use for my left hand, fingers will not bend without a lot of pain, but with your exercises hope to get more flexibility, thank you!
