Mr Kite wrote:I would like to think that was true - but how are the interossei going to rotate the knuckle? They attach on the wrong side (i.e. forward of the knuckle) and are concerned with abduction, not rotation. They will help you spread the fingers from the knuckle, but this won't help if you have a pronounced splay. If you don't have much of a splay, then more of a spread at the knuckle will translate into more of a spread at the fingertips - in which case this method will work - but my previous post is on the basis that the OP has a pronounced splay, in which case spreading from the knuckle is just a lot of muscular effort for no end result, since the tips will stay together.
