Arm & Hand Pain
Whether it’s from work, workouts or a chronic condition, massage and stretching can help improve circulation, which often reduces arm and hand pain.
Steps to Relief
When massaging the arms, start at the end of the shoulder blade and work your way down to the fingertips.
There are two methods of massaging the arms: using short strokes to work down from the shoulder to the elbow, and then from the elbow to the wrist. Or use long strokes to massage from the shoulder to the wrist continuously. Try both and see which method works best for you.
Massaging the back of the hand is not recommended. However, massaging the fingers toward the tips is allowable.
