Using a computer keyboard or mouse for long periods of time often causes wrist pain, which is often referred to as repetitive strain injury (RSI). This is due to the nerves of the wrist being pressed together. This can also cause pain to the fingertips. If symptoms are severe hand muscles can often be weakened.
You do not have to wait for a cure for symptoms of this illness, as you can simply apply ginger water to the affected areas. Ginger water will help relieve symptoms of RSI due to ginger having a warming herbal effect; it stimulates blood circulation around the nerves, helping to relieve the pain.
How to prepare:
Add grated ginger to boiling water and simmer for 30 minutes, remove from the heat and set aside. Allow the water to cool but not to get cold.
How to use:
Soak a small towel in the ginger water. Twist the towel to remove some of the water and place on the affected area. Place a dry towel over the wet towel to keep in the warmth. Leave until the towel is cold. Do this 2-3 times a day and the pain will be reduced.
