One of my clients just mentioned that his wife is suffering from painful and swollen knuckles due to arthritis. He asked me about exercises she can do to alleviate this pain, and I showed him this video. While I initially made this video for a client who plays guitar, these moves are beneficial for anyone looking to improve strength, flexibility and mobility, or to reduce pain in their hands, wrists and shoulders. Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments below, or share this with a loved one suffering from arthritis pain.
