If you are doing jiu-jitsu or judo then chances are at some point you will get sore fingers from all the grabbing of the gi.
In this video I’ll show you 2 ways how I deal with finger pain and soreness.
I used to dunk my hands in cold water and that helped for the pain. Yet I didn’t think it did much for helping them heal. I also used to tape my fingers a lot. But I am not sure that it did much.
Then I started soaking my fingers in warm water and that helped. Your fingers like your toes are on the end of your body so they get less blood flow than other parts of your body.
So I think the warm water will improve blood flow to them and help them heal as they sometimes get micro injuries from the grabbing.
You can try it out whenever your fingers are sore. You can soak them in warm water for 15-20 minutes a time.
I also combine this with meditation. So I am doing 2 beneficial things at once.
The other thing I do is use DMSO. You can apply this to your fingers after you have showered or at least washed them.
I notice less stiffness and soreness after doing this.
