Hands are very important parts of the body. Right or left both are equally important. When a person gets partial paralysis and his/her hands are affected, in a way he/she becomes handicapped. Partial paralysis happens due to less blood flow to the brain. In some cases it might happen due to an accident or after an operation performed on the head. Hands take more time to heal than the rest of the body. Proper care has to be taken to heal hands from partial paralysis; otherwise it will lead to further complications. The patient should not be made to stand up holding him/her by the shoulders; there are chances of the shoulders getting dislocated due to pressure. This could result in stiffness of the shoulders, joints and fingers. If such stiffness occurs, shoulders or elbows should not be rubbed hard. They should be treated with steam therapy. Physiotherapy is a science used for such diseases. If hands are motionless, exercises taught in physiotherapy help heal the ailment. Exercises such as applying pressure to hands can be done. Getting up from the sleeping position in a proper way and own your own by turning on one side is taught, which will reduce chances of dislocation of the shoulders. Stiffness in shoulders is also treated by Capsular stretching exercises. Regular and daily exercise will help heal the hands and stop the pain.
