When your hands go stiff, you sometimes find it difficult to carry out your daily tasks. Fortunately, this does not happen very often, and it could also depend on just what kind of jobs you are called to do each day. For instance, you could be in for a stickler if there is no central heating in your apartment, right smack bang in the middle of winter, and you are required to spend up to ten hours clacking away at your keyboard.
You could get away with wearing gloves. But again, that would also depend on just exactly what kind of work you are doing at your desktop. Those with hand stiffness in Mount Pleasant could be amongst the most outdoorsy type of people. No amount of inclement weather, particularly if it is nastily cold, is about to keep them from having their fun. Of course, its different when you do these kind of things for a living.
You can get away with some discomfort if you are just playing games. It matters very little to daily life if you miss the snowman. But what if there is still a screw loose. The margin of error must be very slim indeed. In fact, there are those that are now saying that there should in fact be a zero tolerance for human error. Which is why you would usually have checks and balances if you will. Anyway, those who are required to work at below zero temperatures out of doors would usually be adequately protected, from top to bottom.
And especially their hands and feet. But what if the hand stiffness never goes away? Get yourself to a specialist medical practitioner or surgeon at the earliest signs of prolonged hand stiffness.
