Are you a musician that plays an instrument that depends upon finger strength? A gymnast, weight lifter or other athlete that participates in a sport where grip strength is essential? Maybe you have arthritis in your fingers or are diabetic and need to exercise your fingers for circulation. Consider strengthening your fingers and your hand grip.
