Method: Non-experimental design study, descriptive case series, sample 17 participants with diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.
The patients performed a program of exercises focused on manual motor skill for 6 weeks. Were measured at the variables of function, the grip strength , digtal clamp and pain, the sixth week and at the third month.

Results: There was no significant difference in pain intensity, function and the grip strength, post intervention p > 0,05.
There was significant difference at the sixth week in the digital clamp p = 0.002. During follow-up at the third month, there was only significant difference in the grip strength p = 0.01.

Conclusion: The application of a program of exercises focused on the manual motor skill, generated changes a level of the grip strength and clamp. Regarding the functionality and
