Problem with finger tendons

Postby tpowell » Tue Apr 09, 2013 10:58 am

So I recently started hitting pockets super hard on the treadwall at the the gym, and this week I've been having some pain in my ring finger. So far, it hurts to push on the top and bottom of the finger as well as making a fist. I'm finding that it doesn't hurt while I climb, only afterwards. I'm worried that I've strained/torn a pulley tendon or whatever they're called. Does anyone have any experience with an injury like this? I'd love some advice as to what to do. I was planning on taking a break from hard bouldering and focusing on endurance. Thoughts? Concerns?

Does your finger feel jammed below the knuckle when bent? I experienced this about two months ago while getting back into harder (for me anyway) bouldering after a break. I kept climbing a few days a week while avoiding crimpy things, but the injury hung around for a and didn't go away until I took a week or two off completely. I'd probably recommend a complete break or sticking only to really juggy routes until it feels better, otherwise it will just hang around longer than it would otherwise.
