Touch is one of the most powerful senses in the human body. With touch, we know, interact with, and manipulate our world. To control our society’s abundant technology, we must constantly swipe, tap, and click. We need the feeling and muscle control in our hands and fingers to be reliable. With such high demands on our hands, it's not surprising many of us deal with frequent or prolonged hand pain.
Aching in the hands and wrists is not only caused by repetitive motion; hand pain also stems from conditions like tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and arthritis. Your pain may be due to accident or injury. We all want to put an end to the discomfort that limits our daily activities.
Here are a few ways to wave goodbye to hurting wrists.
Stretch and Strengthen
We use our hands a lot, but rarely exercise this body part. Stretching and strengthening exercises can help reduce tension and build support for delicate bones, tendons and ligaments in the wrist.
During long sessions using a computer or mobile device, frequently shake your hands out loosely. Bend your hands forward and back, pulling on the fingers to stretch. These simple stretches can help alleviate tension and soreness in the wrists.
To work on hand strength and flexibility, place a foam ball in your palm and make a fist, squeezing firmly. Continue squeezing for a two-count, then relax. Repeat a dozen times per session. Do not overdo this exercise; two to three times a week is sufficient, with a couple of days in between each session. As with any exercise, check with your physician before starting, and discuss any prior or existing hand injuries with them.

If hand pain persists or becomes more intense, you should seek help from your primary care provider or physical therapist. A physician can diagnose issues and refer you to hand specialists, who can make you braces, teach you stretches, and help to rehabilitate your wrists.
