Hand and Finger Injuries – Rock Climbing Rehab – Crimp Grip Strength

If you’ve injured your finger tendon or hand from rock climbing any other hand and finger intensive sports or activities, then this exercise might help you get back to a better functional recovery!

Start with your wrist in neutral, not flexed or extended. Then flex your index to last fingers at the knuckle joints only - or the Proximal Inter phalangeal joints, and then flex the last two digits of every finger and pull into the hand for a tight crimp grip flexion.

Extend the fingers back out and repeat this for 30 seconds doing 3 sets 2 times daily.

This can help you recover and rehab your hand or finger injury more effectively and increase your contact strength for rock climbing or any other hand or finger intensive type of activities. If you have pain or are unsure about what you are doing consult a local physiotherapist before continuing.
