Saline Soaks

Saline Soaks

Your hand should be soaked in warm salt solution.

There are 3 ways to obtain a batch of salt solution:

  1. Buy a liter of Sterile Saline.
  2. Boil one quart of water – Add one tablespoon of Table Salt.
  3. Use a Gallon of Distilled Water – Add 4 Tablespoons of Table Salt.
  1. Microwave a batch of that solution in a paper cup or appropriate size container.
  2. Allow solution to cool to a comfortable temperature (100 – 102 Fahrenheit) before use.
  3. While your hand is soaking, you should exercise it as you were instructed, unless told otherwise by your surgeon.
  4. Do this for a total of 15-20 minutes.
  5. Repeat 3-4 times every day.
