A 33-year-old member asked:

what are some exercises that'll relieve my finger stiffness?

Passive stretch: Finger stiffness is generally associated with increased fluid of the joints or tendons. By stretching the fingers slightly beyond their normal range of motion the tendons get stretched and the ligaments of the joints give a little. This produces relief.

I agree with what Dr. Ciaglia stated. In addition, I would recommend warming up your hands prior to working on the stiffness. Warming the joint makes the connective tissue more pliable. Good luck!
