5 Home Remedies For Hand And Wrist Pain

Your hands and wrists are continuously in use throughout the day as you work, work out, and participate in your hobbies. A single injury may significantly impact your capacity to perform. However, most Cumming hand & wrist pain cases do not indicate a significant or ongoing issue and may go away in a few days or weeks with some easy at-home self-care.

Here are home remedies for hand and wrist pain;

  1.   Avoid activities that aggravate your discomfort

Stay away from activities that aggravate the pain or create it. Any repeated task,  using a screwdriver, painting,   using a screwdriver, or moving large goods, may fall under this category. To reduce the stress on your hands and wrists, you might be able to alter how you perform some chores. Some hand and wrist issues won’t improve unless you quit performing particular jobs.

  1.   Try over-the-counter pain medications

Taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, and pain relievers like paracetamol can help to reduce pain and inflammation in your hand and wrist. Also, you can apply NSAID gels on your hand and wrist. Or you may take pills, which you can do. Combining gels and pills can result in overdosing because both enter your bloodstream. You should carefully read the instructions that come with any drug, including the dose instructions. Speak with a Physician or a pharmacist if you have any concerns or questions.

  1.       Ice and heat

You can lessen discomfort and swelling by applying an ice pack to your hands and wrists. You may use a packet of frozen vegetables wrapped in a wet towel. Avoid applying ice to the skin since it might burn or hurt it.

Applying heat may ease the discomfort and stiffness in your hands. You may get items like wheat bags from pharmacies that you can reheat in a microwave. You might need to cover your skin with a cloth or tea towel to prevent scorching.

You may also relieve your pain by taking a warm bath or shower, placing your wrist and hand on a hot water bottle with the covering on, or both. It can be beneficial and relaxing to move your hand around in a bowl of warm water. If your wrist or hand is inflamed or you just hurt it, avoid applying heat to it since it could aggravate the situation.

  1.   Wearing splints

Wearing splints can support your wrist and hand and wrist. Some splints are for use while you are doing your daily chores, while others are for help when you sleep or relax. You can get guidance from a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, or hand therapist on whether a splint could be helpful, which kind would be best for you, and how to wear it appropriately.

  1.   Keep your wrists and hands moving

 Move your hands, wrists, and fingers as much as possible to reduce discomfort and stiffness. Additionally, this will keep your strength, function, and range of motion intact.

You can practice these workouts at home. If your wrists and hands feel tight, try to perform them as frequently as possible.
