Hands are an essential part of the human body. We perform a plethora of things with our hands, be it eating, writing, typing, cooking, cleaning, in fact, even during praying we need to use our hands.
Hand pain has become old news in today’s digitalized world. Upon that there’s deadly Corona which is making us overwork from home. Since people are overworking, they are facing several health issues, like neck pain, insomnia, headaches, and even hand pain. Trust me, I’m a writer and I know how shitty hand pain feels like. Incessant typing has caused my veins to show up and there’s not a single day when I’m not cracking my knuckles due to pain in my wrist and fingers.
According to several health professionals from best hospitals in Varanasi, your hands ache when you do not give it the rest it needs or when your hands have been subjected to any recent injuries or accidents. There are certain ways through which you can deal with excruciating hand pain. Allow me to mention some of them in brief.
Use Hot Water Treatment
Hot water has always been a favourite remedy for aches and pains. You can take a hot shower or you can fill a bowl wide enough to fit your hands with hot water. I would highly recommend you to add a tbsp of epsom salt and some drops of your preferred essential oil into the bowl for a relaxing experience.
Apply An Ice Pack
If you’re into hot water treatment, you can opt for something cold. Apply an ice pack 3-4 times a day to get relief from your terrible hand pain.
Drink Turmeric Latte
Yes, turmeric latte is simply wow for any ache in the body. All thanks to turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties. Upon that, it’s very easy to prepare turmeric latte aka haldi waala doodh.

Do Hand Exercises
Try hand exercises, like thumb stretches, finger bends, fist exercises, and so on. Do these exercises 3-5 times a day for two minutes without fail.
Massage Your Hands
If exercising is not your cup of tea, try soothing massages. Massage your hands with a lotion or oil every night. A tip from my side: if you’re using a massage oil, warm it up a little for more effective results.
Hope the above ways help you, I seriously want them to work for you. In case they don’t work, consult a medical professional to get a more reliable solution. Don’t forget to give your hands the gift of good rest by declaring one day in a week as “no working day”! See you again!
