Finger thumb and hand strength exercises – which strength is best?

There are many reasons why people are interested in strengthening exercises for their fingers, thumbs, hands, wrists, carpal tunnels, forearms and elbows using Handmaster Plus. Today's blog is about choosing the proper strength Handmaster Plus that is appropriate for your needs. Always remember that you want to choose a strength resistance that you can handle so that you can move your hands fully through the closing and opening motions. This will ensure that you will be strengthening and balancing the hand, wrist and elbow. I would like to also suggest a test to perform before beginning even with the soft strength.
Our soft strength Handmaster plus is designed for early-stage rehabilitation exercises of many conditions, such as arthritis, stroke, osteoporosis as well as post-injury for rehabilitation exercise such as sprains, strains, dislocations and fractures of the finger, thumb, hand, wrist and elbow. As well people are doing rehabilitation exercises for conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, golfers elbow (medial epicondylitis), tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), wrist tendonitis, jams of the finger/thumb, and DeQuervain's tenosynovitis.
Regardless of your specific need for early-stage rehabilitation exercises, first you must attain your health care provider's approval to begin exercise. It is also a good idea to perform the following test to make sure you are ready for real rehabilitation exercises: start without the Handmaster Plus soft strength on your hand and simply close your hand into a grip for count of one second and then alternately open and spread your fingers for count of one second. Continue this for 30 seconds. Then determine your comfort level at that point. If there is no pain or discomfort, you are ready to start with Handmaster Plus soft strength resistance in your rehabilitation exercises. If you feel discomfort or pain during the test, simply continue the hand open and closed exercise without resistance daily until you feel any discomfort. Simply doing this exercise even for 10 seconds a few times per day will be beneficial. but remember, only if there is no discomfort. If there is discomfort even on this test, you are not stable enough for any type of rehabilitation exercise, and it is best to rest. Again, only your healthcare provider can advise.
The medium strength Handmaster plus product is generally used in late stage rehabilitation cases or as a wellness, performance and injury prevention training exercise. If you are using Handmaster plus medium strength for late stage rehabilitation exercises, please do so only after mastering the Handmaster Plus soft rehabilitation exercises. If, at any point, anyone using the medium Handmaster Plus cannot do the exercises through full ranges of motion, I highly suggest that you step back and use the Handmaster Plus soft until all hand muscles are ready for the medium resistance.
The same is true for those who are using the headmaster plus firm strength for training exercises. Like any exercise is too much resistance is being supplied, the mechanics of the exercise will not be done properly. Remember, this is not an ego contest, it is essential that the proper resistance is used that allows you to open the hands fully utilizing the extensor and abductor muscles (9 muscles open your hand) as well as close the hands fully against the ball (equally 9 muscles close the hand). Only when the hand muscles are trained properly through full natural ranges of motion - both clothing and opening - can the strength, stability and balance of the fingers, thumb, hand, wrist, carpal tunnel and elbow be achieved.
