Before we dig into the exercises, you should know how to get the most of your hand putty exercises:

Getting the Best Results from Hand Putty Exercises

If you only learn one thing from this post, remember this:

Massed practice is the key to recovering mobility after stroke. The more repetitions you complete of therapeutic rehab exercises, the faster you’ll regain mobility.

So if you want to improve hand function after stroke, aim to practice a high number of repetitions of hand therapy exercises, like these putty exercises.

Also, consistency is often more important than pushing your rep count super high.

You will see better results if you practice 10x reps daily than 100 reps only once a week. Your brain needs consistent stimulation to relearn hand motor skills fastest.

Now, let’s exercise.
