However before for something as dramatic as surgery, it may help to try a few home exercise to relieve the pain and stiffness of the joints of the hands. Of course you can try these exercises along with medication prescribed by a doctor, or on their own, but it's always better to start sooner rather than later. These exercises will help ' flex-and-relax ' joints in both hands and can be performed anywhere.

1. bend finger
Spread and stretch your palms again.

Then slowly bend your finger down until it touches the Palm of your hand while maintaining the other fingers straight as you can.

Hold it for 5-10 seconds, and then slowly straighten it back up.

Repeat for each finger, and then switch to another.

2. make a fist
This exercise starts in the same position "handshake" distribution, as well as the first. Start by holding the ball (either one) directly, as if you were ready to perform the handshake, though you do not need to extend your hand.

Next, slowly bend the hand into a fist, where the thumb is on the outer side of the arm.

It is important to be gentle during this promotion, so squeezing hand. Once formed the fist, open your hand until the fingers straight again. Repeat 10 times. Then switch to the other arm.

3. finger stretch

This is similar to finger bending exercises starts, including the position of shake and bend the finger. But instead of buckling, until it touches the Palm of your hand, your goal is the base of the pinky finger.

You don't need to make contact with the base, but you need to stretch as far as you can. Hold this position for a few seconds and then slowly release. Repeat 10 times and then switch hands.

This exercise is called "O" exercises. You start with your hand held up and straight as if giving a high five, with your fingers spread apart.

Then slowly curve your fingers until they touch. The result should be a claw or O-shaped.

Hold for 5-10 seconds and then straighten. Perform this exercise several times a day on each hand, but you don't need to do them all at once. Claw works better when your hands begin to feel sore or stiff.

5. bending table
Start in the position of shaking hands again, but this time the rest side of the arm on a flat surface so that your thumb points upward.

Hold your finger pointing as straight up as you can slowly folding fingers inside. The result would pose "thumbs-up".

Note: this exercise works better when the arm can be kept level, which is what the table surface is designed to provide.

6. finger lifts
Put your hand flat on the table with the Palm and fingers spread.

Keeping your fingers as flat as possible, slowly lift your finger up as high as you can.

Hold for a few seconds, then lower.

Repeat for each finger, and then switch hands.
