Stretching Intrinsic Hand Muscles - Jonathan Kuttner
The intrinsic muscles of the hand are generally taken for granted, as they are involved in so many aspects of daily life.
A decrease in functionality (pain, restricted range of movement) will create a significant negative impact on people's lives.
Damage to these muscles make it difficult for people to perform simple daily tasks such as handling money, opening doors, typing, or using a mobile phone.
In many cases, the affected intrinsic muscles will have an adverse affect on other hand structures that aren't themselves injured. Typically, these will include the flexor and extensor tendons.
Very often, pain and stiffness in the hands can be caused by active trigger points in the intrinsic muscles.
