Hello valued readers,
We have received some requests for a video on how to improve fine motor skills. There are a lot of ways to do this. The research strongly recommends being very deliberate with the timing of your medications and understanding the hi and low points and tracking those. High intensity exercise may increase symptoms in the short term, will decrease symptoms in the long term.
In addition to the timing of your medications and high intensity exercise, there are specific fine motor activities you can use to improve your skills. The research suggests starting these activities before you actually start to have fine motor limitations. The earlier and more aggressively you attack these issues, the better.
Enjoy the video below and let us know what else you'd like to learn about. For more ideas on fine motor skills, check out future posts here and talk to your local physical and occupational therapists.
