Injured my left index finger a few weeks ago, from overuse I think. Pulley injury around the middle knuckle. I have been icing it a lot and trying not to climb on it too much, but I’m having a hard time. It is getting better though. The first day it hurt to put any weight on it. Now, I can grab two or so pad edges without pain. Pretty psyched! Hopefully in the next week or so it will be ok again.
I’m trying to stay optimistic. Focusing mainly on progression in physical strength, I don’t usually worry about technique too much. Being injured though it’s nice to be able to slow down and really try figuring out the best way to set my body up for a move.
Metolius hooked it up with a Grip Saver!… It helps strengthen opposing muscles we don’t use very often to provide support and balance around the fingers and hands.
