Hand and Finger Injuries – Rock Climbing Rehab – Hand Intrinsic Muscles

If you have a finger tendon or annular pulley ligament injury, then doing strength training for the intrinsic muscles of your hand and fingers can help you rehab much better!

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. Return the fingers to the start position 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. If you have pain or are unsure about what you are doing consult a local physiotherapist before continuing.
