Step 1 - End Muscle Attachment Inflammation



Do-It-Yourself Hand Pain Relief can often be simple if you are just shown the correct techniques and you take your time.

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Forearm Release With Thumb -

All the tendons from your forearms muscles run through your wrist and connect to your hand and fingers. If the big bellies of these forearm muscles are tight then they can be pulling too much on the tendons and create the hand pain you feel. So we've got to loosen these tight muscles.
Take your thumb from your opposite hand and press it into the muscle tissue in your forearm while your arm rests in your lap with your palm facing toward the ceiling. Notice any tender spots, and notice if the entire forearm is tight, which is possible.

Even if you have strong forearms you should be able to press into the muscles and they should NOT be tender. Tender means tight, and tight muscles mean they're probably playing a part in making your wrist hurt. Ideally, muscles are strong and flexible, not tight and tender.

Now, we'll use the press-hold-move technique. Begin opening and closing your hand continuously while……at the same time……you are pressing with your thumb into the tender spots in your forearm muscles.

You will feel the tight muscles moving under your thumb as they do their job of opening and closing your hand. Take a break when your thumb needs a rest from pushing.

Notice how much hand pain relief has occurred from this one technique.

B. Forearm Release With Opposite Forearm -

I love this technique! It has served me well for many years when I work on my own forearms. Sometimes you need more pressure than just your thumb can provide to release the muscles in your forearm, especially if you want to really get at those big strong deep forearm muscles, the flexor digitorum profundus and the flexor pollicis longus.

With the palm of your hand facing the ceiling, lay your forearm on a flat, stable, but cushioned surface. Laying a towel on a kitchen table, chair, stool, or bench is usually fine.

Now we'll use the press-hold-move technique again. Take your opposite forearm and using about 2 to 3 inches of the flat boney surface just below your elbow, lean over your forearm that is now resting on the table and use your bodyweight to press into the tight tissue in your other forearm……while you open and close the hand on the wrist the hurts.

Pick one tender spot at a time. Then press, hold and release......press, hold and release as you open and close your hand. Do this for a couple minutes, take your time. Then take a break.

Notice how much hand pain relief has occurred from this one technique.

C. Top of Forearm Release With Fingertips -

Now we're going to release the muscles on the "top" side of your forearm (extensor muscles). Place your hand on your lap palm down. The part of your forearm facing the ceiling is what we're calling the "top" of your forearm for this exercise.

Take your fingertips from your opposite hand and press into the muscle tissue on the top of your forearm while you flex your hand back toward your elbow. Notice any tender spots in the tissue on the top of your forearm (anywhere between the two bones that make up your forearm).

Now, we'll use the press-hold-move technique. Press on one spot at a time as you flex your wrist back and forth. Take a break after a minute or two.

Notice how much hand pain relief has occurred, and if so, how much it has improved.

D. Top of Forearm Release With Point of Elbow -

Sometimes you need more pressure than just your fingertips can provide to release the muscles in the top of your forearm.

We'll still be using the press-hold-move technique. With the palm of your hand facing down, lay your forearm on a flat, stable, but cushioned surface. Laying a towel on a kitchen table, chair, stool, or bench is usually fine. Now take your opposite forearm and using the point of your elbow, press into your forearm resting on the table and use your bodyweight to press into the tight tissue in your forearm while you flex your wrist back and forth.
Pick one tender spot at a time. Then press and release, press and release as you flex your wrist back and forth. Do this for a couple minutes, take your time. Then take a break.

Notice how much hand pain relief has occurred.

Step 2 - Stop Nerve Pathway Irritation



Here's what you're going to do:

A. Lower Neck and Shoulder Release -

With your hand that is not in pain reach across the front of your neck and let your fingertips "hang" on the intersection the back of your neck and shoulder. You should be pressing into this tissue on the same side of the body that your hand pain is on. Feel the tissue on the lower portion of your neck and down and out about six inches on the top of your shoulder.

If you feel any tender muscle tissue do the press-hold-move technique on any tender spots until they release.

With your neck you can nod "yes" or turn your head back and forth in a "no" motion to make that tissue move under your fingers.

With the top of your shoulder, shrugging your shoulder backward with your elbow raised high will make that tissue move as you press on it.

Do the same technique on the other side of your body. If you can do it with the hand that hurts it may be easier, if not do it with hand that doesn't hurt and it will be fine.

Notice how much hand pain relief this technique creates for future reference.

B. Underside of Collarbone -

Take the tips of your fingers on the hand opposite from the side you're working on and place them on the muscle tissue on the underside of your collarbone (subclavius, pectoralis major and minor muscles).

Now curve your fingers on your hand a little bit, and take the palm of your other hand and place it over your dominant hand. We call this the hand-on-hand technique- it allows you to apply pressure without tiring out your hands. You will simply press on the tissue with your finger tips, and press on your finger tips with the palm of your other hand. It's amazing how much easier it is to work on yourself using the "hand on hand" technique.

Use your fingertips to press along the entire length of the underside of your collarbone on all the soft tissue (all the way across until you run into your shoulder muscles) and notice any tender spots.

Now add in the press-pull-release technique. Press, pull and release......press, pull and release (press for about 1 full second and then release) continuously with your finger tips using the "hand-on-hand" method into the tender spots until they become less tender.

C. Upper Back -

Begin with the tennis-ball-press technique. Lie on the floor with a tennis ball under your shoulder blade or put a tennis ball in a sock and lean against the wall with the tennis ball pressed between your shoulder blade and the wall (infraspinatus muscle). Now do the press-hold-move technique by sliding your elbow along the floor or wall while the tennis ball is placed under any tender spots.

Now position the tennis ball in the space between your shoulder blade and your spine (rhomboid muscle). Move your arm in the same motion you just did as you put pressure on any tender spots. Work one tender spot for a bit, move to another for a bit, then return to the spots you've already worked on and you'll find they've let go a bit while you were working on other spots.

Do this on BOTH sides of your upper back, especially on the rhomboid muscle between your spine and shoulder blade.

D. Back of Upper Arm Release

We're going to work on the back of your upper arm on the side that your hand hurts. Take your opposite hand and reach across your body and grab the back of your upper arm. These muscles are called your triceps. Press your fingertips into the on the back of your arm from you elbow all the way up to your shoulder. Notice any tender tissue.

Press your fingertips into any tender spots and do the press-hold-move technique by straightening and bending your elbow joint.

You can also do the press-pull-release technique on any tender spots. It also tends to work well in this area.

Notice how much hand pain relief this technique creates for future reference.

E. Release Elbow Joint

Take your thumb from the hand that does not hurt and press it into the front outer half of your elbow joint. There is a muscle here called your brachioradialis that can be a factor in causing hand pain.

If it is tender do the press-hold-move technique by bending and straightening your elbow.

You can also add the press-pull-release technique to help this muscle release.

Step 3 - Restore Joint Muscle Balance



You've already restored a lot of joint muscle balance with the work you did in Step 1, so Step 3 just deals with the few remaining muscles that could be causing your wrist joint pain.

So here's what we're going to do:

A. Palm of Hand Release -

We'll be using the press-hold-move technique on the palm of your hand.

Take your thumb from your non-painful hand and place it in the center of the palm of the hand with the wrist pain. While holding your thumb in place put your fingertips on the back of the hand with wrist pain….so now you are able to "pinch" the palm of your hand between your thumb and fingers.

Gently pinch the tissue in your palm and notice any tender tissue

Now, press firmly on any tender spots while opening and closing your hand. For most areas of your palm you can open and close just your fingers and you'll feel the tissue move under your thumb as you do it. But for the muscles in your palm that operate your thumb you may have to play around with the position of your working hand to appropriately "pinch" the muscles that operate your thumb.

Take your time. Press on the tissue while moving your fingers on the hand with the wrist pain. Then move to another spot for a while. Then come back to the spots you've already worked with and you'll find they're more free from the work you did in other areas.

You can also add the press-pull-release technique to help these muscles release.

Notice if one particular tender spot triggers noticable hand pain relief and focus on those spots.

B. Back of Hand Release -

This very similar to the work you just did on the palm of your hand, except we'll be using your fingertips to work on the back of your hand with the press-hold-move technique.

With your hand relaxed,press your fingertips into the tissue between the bones on the back your hand. When you notice a tender spot to the press-hold-move technique by pressing while closing your hand into a fist and then opening your hand as wide as you can by flexing your fingers back toward the back of your hand.

It's also good to investigate for tender tissue while opening and closing your hand. When you find a tender spot, just do the press-hold-move technique as described in the paragraph above.

Repeat Step 3 again before assessing its effectiveness. Most people's palms need a lot of work to totally release, so just do a little bit at a time if that works better for you.

Notice how much hand pain relief Step 3 achieved for you for future reference.

Self-Assessment For
Hand Pain Relief

Is your hand joint pain completely gone? Partially gone?
Which techniques gave you the most pain relief?
Did Step 1, Step 2, or Step 3 work best?
Was there one specific hand pain treatment that instantly relieved your pain? Remember what worked best for you, so you can do that first next time you need it.

Are you still experiencing some hand pain?
Which muscles are still tender (that means they are tight!) and could use some more work?
Go back and repeat those techniques that seem to need a few more rounds. You may be pleasantly surprised at the results you get now that you've released other muscles that may prevented them letting go on the first attempt.

Investigate a bit and you'll eventually find which techniques work best for you to provide the best wrist joint pain relief. Then you'll be able to fix yourself whenever you desire!
