MINOR WRIST & JOINT PAIN RELIEF:
Get your wrists moving.
Flex them throughout the day to increase your range of motion, helping to release tension that may develop while doing your daily routine.
Add some support.
Use gel or foam wrist pads at work to help you stabilize your joints while you type.
Adjust your posture.
Set up your desk for better ergonomics: keep your hands at the same level as your elbows and your wrists straight, not bent.
Don’t sit still.
Shift positions when sitting at work, watching TV or reading to prevent stiffness.
Stabilize while on the go.
Wear sleeve or joint guards for added support during the day.
Try new therapies.
For example, acupuncture may help ease osteoarthritis pain. Talk to your doctor about other options.
