Fine Motor Skills


Fine motor skills are the ability to make movements with the tiny muscles found in our hands and wrists. These types of skills include picking up objects, holding a pen or pencil, cutting with scissors, buttoning shirts, tying shoes and other daily activities that involve the tedious work of your fingers, hands and wrists. Most fine motor skills are needed for daily life activities for adults and children at work, home or school. At Advanced Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy, our occupational therapy program can help improve these daily life skills.
