Hand and Finger Injuries – Rock Climbing Rehab – Hand Intrinsic Muscle Strengthening Part 2
If you’ve injured your finger tendon or a pulley ligament from rock climbing, then doing specific strength training for them can help you better rehab from it.
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 spread all the fingers apart (into abduction).
Return the fingers together and repeat this for 30 seconds doing 3 sets 2 times daily.
This exercise can help you heal, recover and rehab more effectively and increase your contact strength after a hand or finger injury from rock climbing. If you have pain or are unsure about what you are doing consult a local physiotherapist before continuing.
