In my case it happened naturally - like your native lanquaqe - I did not really think a lot about it... I just use it. I don't pretend to be a great teacher therefore somebody else could explain it and justify it better than me.
I don't use all the time in all things, no. But where it want to play naturally, or in harmonics, or to alternate melody by apoyando of little finger, or in some arpeggios..
But because it happens naturally in my case I never analysed it and can't really give to somebody lessons about it...
I never really play any exercises for it too... I just use it...
But it is good to use it!
And regarding your question - yes I don't have any problem with my right hand because of guitar playing. Could it be because little finger? That's possible too.
I'd better speak by music...Please listen my guitar at Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, etc.
