Move your way

Get a Grip benefits go far beyond flexibility and strength. This program impacts how we function with our hands, which ultimately connects you back to your surroundings and what's most important to you.

In this program, you will have access to 3 phases of exercises, each one laying a foundation for the next. The plan guides you through a proven series of movements to follow.

However, since no two people are the same and no two days are the same, you are able to freely navigate through the plan.

Ultimately, you'll find a pace and path that relieves your hand stiffness and weakness for good.

Get a Grip is for you if you've felt frustration trying to

Open tight jars, carry groceries, open bags, play your favorite instrument, participate in your favorite hobbies, basically...

all the things we do with our hands.

Phase 1: Warm Up

In this warm up phase, you’ll learn active finger and thumb exercises that are the foundation to work through hand stiffness and get you on the path to improved strength.

We will also guide you through modifications and easy to follow demonstrations to reduce discomfort.

Phase 2: Precision and Power Prep

In this transition phase, you’ll be guided through finger and thumb stretches to maximize your finger and thumb mobility.

From there, we will progress your gripping abilities with exercises focusing on in hand manipulation, light gripping, and light pinching.

Phase 3: Grip Strength and Endurance

In this final phase, you will be putting in the hard work with grip and pinch strengthening exercises.

This is where you will use common household items plus recommended equipment to purchase to help you achieve your hand strengthening goals.

Hi I'm Michelle

For over 18 years, I've helped people recover from life changing hand and arm injuries as an Occupational Therapist and Certified Hand therapist. I understand the devastating physical and emotional impact loss of hand function can have on your life. That is why I want to teach you how to get back the motion, strength, and functional use of your hands.

You are here because you are ready to do the work, but you may not know where to start, or know if you are doing it right. You don’t have to figure it out on your own. I’d love for you to follow along with me in my Get a Grip program.

What Participants Say

Learn how the Get a Grip program is helping others.

I really needed this! I had a wrist surgery on November last year and it's been 3 months since they took off the cast. I didn't have motion until I started your exercises 3 days ago. I'm gonna keep doing those exercises until I reach 100% flexibility. Thank you 😊
I gave up guitar because of my injury. This program has helped me slowly gain the mobility, dexterity and strength back in my hand and fingers. I'm starting to play a few minutes a day again and I couldn't be happier!
No one understands the importance of your hands like Michelle. You feel as if she is your therapist and it is so nice to be able to do the the exercises along with her.
FAQ's

Questions you may be asking before starting Get a Grip

This program is for anyone looking to maximize their hand function, improve finger or hand range of motion, reduce joint achiness and/or stiffness, increase finger and thumb dexterity, and increase grip and pinch. 

Whether it be wrist/hand issues from a new or old injury, stiffness as a result of a hand fracture or surgery, or if you are someone interested in improving your finger, thumb, and overall hand health, you can benefit from this program. I make it easy and teach you how to incorporate self care to this often neglected part of our body.

Invest in your most valuable body parts. Over the past 18 years I have worked with thousands of people with life altering hand injuries. I have seen how injuries to your hands and arms can not only effect you physically but the mental, emotional, social, and financial impact can be great.  

By using exercises, modifications, and 3 progressive phases (light, moderate, difficult), you are sure to find the right exercises to help you reach your goals.

Hand arthritis, hand/finger stiffness and pain, poor grip/pinch strength, limited finger(s) mobility particularly in flexion, healed finger/hand/thumb/wrist fractures that have resulted in stiff fingers and loss of strength, healed tendon or nerve injuries, sports related injuries, common hand conditions seen in the office athlete, and more!

Short answer- yes. Simply because I don’t believe in the no pain no gain mindset. This is often counterproductive and can cause more hand injuries in the long run. The Get a Grip program is designed to show you how to move with minimal pain. And with 3 progressive phases, you are sure to find a comfortable phase to work in.

Phase 1 begins by working through discomfort and stiffness with range of motion exercises, then you will build from there slowly with phase 2 and 3 by incorporating stretches, grip and pinch strengthening, fine motor coordination, and in hand manipulation tasks.

Furthermore, I’ve built in modifications to several exercises to improve comfort and effectiveness. With that said, I highly recommend anyone with wrist or hand issues to always start with phase 1 after getting clearance to exercise from your doctor.

Because there are many different surgical restrictions and protocols, it can greatly depend on what you had done. There is no way of knowing your specific situation, condition, or protocol restrictions.

With that said, we suggest a conservative approach. Meaning this program will be more appropriate once you are closer to 6-8 weeks post surgery and you have been cleared by your surgeon and/or occupational therapist or physical  therapist to begin exercising. It is always important to learn what your post operative precautions are and how long you may need to follow them. Do not hesitate to contact us should you continue to have concerns.
