Aloha, ukulelist! Has it happened to you that, sometimes, after touching your hands hurt? Well, unfortunately it is more common than you think but today, here, we will explain why this happens and how to avoid it 😉.
Pain in the hands is common in musicians and those of us who play ukulele are not the exception since to generate the necessary muscle memory to be able to play it properly, we have to go through a whole adaptation process that includes putting our hands to exercise with each practice session and those who know what it is to go to the gym will know the pain that exercise causes in under-trained muscles and that it takes a few sessions for them to stop hurting that way but when we keep track the pain decreases until disappearing 😀.
Another of the most common reasons why this pain happens is from playing without heating and, although it may seem like a small thing, the heating is very important so that your hands do not suffer so strongly from the practice you are about to do, the same It applies to prolonged practice or composition sessions where we do not take breaks between exercises or songs and which also results in excessive fatigue and pain for your hands and this can be avoided by warming up before, and resting during your sessions with the ukulele. Stretch your fingers, move them and relax your hands and you will feel much better!
And the last of the common reasons for these uncomfortable pains has to do with something that many of us do without realizing it and that is washing our hands after playing the ukulele and that is harmful in the long term since our hands are still warm when we finish. Touching and when coming into contact with cold water and air after washing, the change in temperature causes this type of pain and the best way to avoid it is to wait half or an hour after touching to wash your hands and thus not put your hands at risk of very uncomfortable pain.
In these ways we can avoid uncomfortable hand pain and have a much better experience playing with our ukulele. We care very much that your musical journey is pleasant and what better than taking care of yourself to be able to play without pain 😉🌸.
