Applying pain balm, is not wrong but it is only temporary relief. Your problem seems to be range of movement for which physiotherapy Will help. You need mobilisation by an experienced physiotherapist.

Weight bearing exercises, leaning backward with Palm support, and functional exercises will reduce the spasticity and will bring back normal function of hand. Better consult a Neuro physiotherapist
