4 Ways To Get Relief From Hand Pain!

4 Ways To Get Relief From Hand Pain!

The human hand is made up of 27 bones and a number of tendons and ligaments. An injury to any one of these bones or a disease that affects the bones and ligaments can make you experience excruciating pain in your hands. This pain can affect your ability to perform simple day to day tasks like holding a spoon or writing. Some common reasons your hand may pain are muscle strains, fractures, arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Apart from pain relieving medication, there are a number of ways you can deal with this pain.

  1. Hot and cold compresses: Hot and cold therapy is ideal for any type of muscle or ligament injury. A cold compress helps in reducing the pain and inflammation by constricting blood vessels and numbing the area. On the other hand, a hot compress dilates blood vessels and increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the affected area. Ideally, the two should be used alternatively for 10 to 20 minutes each. A bag of frozen vegetables or ice wrapped in a towel makes an easy cold compress. To treat your hand with heat, use a moist heating pad or a hot water bottle. You could also dip your hands in warm water.
  2. Massage: A massage is a great way to treat hand pain that results from carpal tunnel syndrome. If the exact cause of pain is not known, massage the entire hand, wrist and forearm. A massage enhances blood flow to the area and hence improves flexibility and opens locked tendons. Using a few drops of essential oils such as lavender or rosemary can also aid in relieving hand pain.
  3. Hand exercises: If your work involves repetitive actions like typing, knitting or embroidery, the muscles in your hand can get locked into position thereby, causing pain and discomfort. To relieve this it is important to take a break from this repetitive exercise every hour and flex your hand. Try bending your fingers forwards and backwards and rotating your wrists in both directions to ensure that your joints remain smooth.
  4. Epsom salt water bath: For instant relief from intense hand pain, soak your hands in a bath made of hot water and epsom salts for 10 to 20 minutes. Follow this by wrapping your hands in a warm, wet washcloth and applying gentle pressure over the hand for 5-10 minutes. You should instantly feel relief from the pain and experience increased the flexibility of hand. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. From the given symptoms, it seems that your wife is troubled from stress and anxiety disorder. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

I am 22 years under anti depressant medication from past five years. I just feel inferiority complex and lonely all the time and feel as if I have lost my dream and am doing nothing good. I feel so helpless and get irritated when my family approaches me. What should I do?

Hi what symptoms you mentioned are all because of depression. It is like using mental filter. In depression we see only the negative around us and about us. We make no efforts to see the positives around us. We even forget our own positive achievements and moments in life. Slowly mind sets into this habitual thinking. But there is a way out. As we go to gym to exercise regularly every day if we want to loose weight same way you need to change your this habitual thinking by conscious efforts every day. Everyday write down the positive happenings in your life even if it means the simplest thing like smelling of beautiful flower fragrance that put smile on your face, someone praised you. This will start your brain rewiring what we call as neuroplasticity towards positive change. Also write your achievements till now. Everyday. Even if you have to write same thing again. Continue this for at least 8 weeks. Learn some relaxation exercise, listening to music. Avoid watching emotional serials or movies. Watch and read comedy. Please do continue on medicines as suggested by your psychiatrist and regularly visit to modify the dose if needed. This is equally important as these exercises. Wishing you a good health! warm regards.

Hi doctor please tell me what is the healthy limitation of consumption of alcohol. Am not addictive I very rarely consume it. Is smoking cigarette avg 2per month is harmful.

Psychologist, Pune
Hi its a debatable question as to healthy consumption of alcohol there is no hard and fast authentic info abt it every Dr. All over the world has a different opinion. Does anyone bitten by mosquito get malaria? dengue? it depends upon several factors its the same in addiction who will get caught in it no one knows as of now you are able to handle it its ok. Even if you consume rarely or smoke rarely no dependancy shud be there coz even if its one drink or one smoke if there is any kind of physical or mental dependancy there is a problem which needs to be addressed. There are other things in life where you can focus on than such secondary things.

Please understand that the schizophrenia is not fully curable. But you don't loose heart. Most of the symptoms of schizophrenia are body's natural defense mechanism. Psychotherapy, meditation and exercise combined with medicines should provide you good management opportunity.

Sir I was suffering from memory loss. After reading some article I nothing gone summarize. So suggest me for that. Thank you.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.

My daughter is 7 years old but she have a problem to remember of study que ans wt should I do for it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
For a child of that age use a play-way method to help her remember. However, I am concerned whether you are pushing her too much or having high expectations on her. If the teachers are also complaining, then there may be some concern. In that case I recommend that you go to a child counselor who specializes in child learning difficulties who will need information, both genetic and as well as her history from prenatal days. If there are any disturbing experiences, they may play a role in distracting her. Simple sensory recall techniques are taught very well in a Montessori school, and so you may consider shifting her to one such school. Picture recall is an easily used method to improve memory. Before that she must be able to concentrate: Yoga has some good exercises to improve concentration, which you might explore.
