I got a massage recently, and she paid a lot of attention to my arms and hands.
Naturally, my therapist helped promote the blood flow in my hands. For an hour after my inflamation was decreased tremendously,
and the morning after I was able to close my hands into a fist(I am not usally able to do that) I am lucky enough to have PPO insurance that covers massages because it is considered physical therapy.
I highly suggest you try this,
and if you are in the LA area, and have PPO insurance contact me, because I now work at a massage place that has a DR on site, and will take most PPO insurance.
If not, try geting a massage once a week, at least on your arms and hands. You can get these simple arm/hand massages at most nail salons at a decent price.
I hope this helps.
Love you all.
Thank you for the support.
