How do I improve my grip strength?

We use our hands every day, for everything that we need to do, and this is normally taken for granted.  Either carrying shopping, cooking, lifting, writing, working, phone calls, texts, emails and cleaning, our hands are what we rely on for most things.

When we do not have a strong grip, we tend to drop things, or do not have the strength in our hands to carry out day to day duties. 

Some reasons for a weakened grip include:

There are many bones and tendons in our hands, which makes them a complex part of our body, so training them to regain more strength can seem just as challenging. There are various grip training exercises that can help you:

When putting together your own training programme of exercises to help your grip, it is a good idea to mix up the exercises during the week in order to work your different muscles within your hand and wrist.

Here at Home Physio Group we have dedicated professional physiotherapists who can help you regain some strength back in your hand grip.  Please call our office on 020 7096 0684 where our friendly case managers will be able to assist.
