The Recipe For a Pain-Free Career
Ice After Work
Ice is by far the most effective treatment for inflammation, and after a few hours of massaging, the muscles in your hands, wrists and forearms are inflamed, whether they hurt or not.
The best and easiest way to ice is with an ice bath. Any trough or cooler large enough to get your entire forearm and hand in is fine. A cooler is great, but anything of the right shape such as a plastic window planter that is long and narrow will do the trick. Fill your container with enough ice to submerge your forearm and hand and add water to the same level.
