Drawing from the latest research, Treat Your Own Hand and Thumb Osteoarthritis is a friendly manual that offers a simple, yet effective program for those who suffer from hand and thumb osteoarthritis.
Illustrated with over 100 step-by-step photographs, readers will find easy-to-follow exercises that are designed to make their hands less stiff, much stronger, more coordinated, and less painful. Perhaps best of all, the exercises can be done in the privacy of one's home with little cost or equipment - and they take just a few minutes each day to do.
