Hand and wrist pain is usually not a serious issue and will settle in a few days or weeks with some simple handcare you can do at home.
Non-Surgical Handcare Options For Painful Hands and Wrists
Stretching Exercises: Get your hand’s tendons and muscles moving in the right direction. If you experience ongoing pain, it also might be a good idea to find a physical therapist. Your physical therapist can guide you through exercises to strengthen the muscles to relieve some of the stress on the hand’s joints and reduce pain.
Moisturizer for cracked, chapped, or dry skin: Work tasks such as cooking, cleaning, and washing can lead to painful hands. Likewise, dry skin can make matters worse, leading to cracked, irritated skin. Apply our herbal hemp cream to dry hands for intense softening and smoothing of stubborn dry skin.
Heat and cold: Use heat to loosen the joints of the hand and wrist. Also, a hot bath or shower can help with chronic pain. Cold therapy can ease newly-developed injuries, such as playing golf. You don’t have to buy an ice pack to enjoy the benefits of cold therapy. If you don’t have an ice pack, a frozen bag of peas will mold around your hand for even distribution.
Splint: A good splint can stabilize the position of your wrist and fingers. You can find quality wrist splints online. The Eatol wrist brace is a top-rated hand brace with hot/cold pack for added handcare benefits.
Injections: Your doctor may suggest an injection of a corticosteroid to reduce swelling for up to a year.
NSAIDS: A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) can help relieve some types of hand pain, but this is only a temporary solution. In addition, long-term use of NSAIDs such as ibuprofen or naproxen is linked to ulcers, organ damage, and increased risk of heart attacks.
Massage therapy is effective at soothing aches, pains, and numbness. It can also be used as a preventive measure. Our hemp cream formula is an ointment-like formula that provides substantial coverage and a smooth glide for an intense handcare massage.
Hemp CBD Cream: The search for pain relief is one reason why CBD Cream is quickly gaining popularity. Use it on cracked skin and sore, achy muscles and joints. The effects of using CBD cream for your handcare routine can last between 2-6 hours, depending on the cannabidiol strength.
