I found this article in a recent email and thought it might be of interest since I think I've seen more than one thread recently on knitting aches and pains.

I've been doing the clench and fan exercise (among others) since I had a mild stroke a year and a half ago. It affected my right side. After you do the clench and fan, you can exercise your fingers by raising and lowering them one by one. I usually do these about 10 times about 2 or 3 times a day.
