The focus of this article is on freeing and strengthening the human hand. Specifically, Michael Boblett presents some practical ideas you may pass on    to clients. There is a list of stretches designed to make the hand more flexible by freeing the various proximal phalanges and their respective metacarpals from being stuck to one another and to their neighbors. There is also some advice about various kinds of equipment for hanging, which can be used to apply distal distraction to impingements, especially in the wrist. The article ends with the usual reminder that there are unanswered questions.
