After childbirth, the mother’s wrist may suffer pain or weakness as a result of stress during pregnancy and childbirth. Here are some tips that can help treat the mother’s wrist after giving birth:
- Rest and massage: Give your wrist enough rest and give it time to recover. You can gently massage the wrist using circular movements and wrap the hand to relieve stress and promote circulation.
- Ice application: Use the coated ice pack or ice bag and place on the wrist for 10-15 minutes several times a day. This can help reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
- Stretching and strengthening exercises: Perform simple exercises to extend and strengthen the wrist muscles. You can slowly catch and open the hand several times or do wrist bend extension exercises.
- Use props: You can use wrist prop or flexible bandage to install and support the joint and relieve pressure from it.
- Physiotherapy: Physiotherapy sessions can be useful in treating the mother’s wrist after childbirth. Physiotherapists can use techniques such as massage and special exercises to strengthen and relieve pain in the wrist.
- Heating: Use warm baths or hot towels to heat the wrist and relieve pain and stress.
Whatever the case, you should listen to your body and give it sufficient periods of rest and care. If pain persists or symptoms worsen, it is advisable to see a doctor or physiotherapist to assess the condition and consult them about appropriate treatment.
