How To Treat a Finger Pulley Tear or Rupture

Treatment for Finger Pulley tear or rupture sprain, strains and tears is vital to ensure the recovery. These injuries can be devastating for rock climbers. Approximately 40% of all reported rock climbing injuries occur at the A2 and A4 pulleys of the flexor tendons. The Mechanism of injury is predictable and involves:

  • Closed crimp hand position
  • Repetitive motion
  • Excessive force
  • Acute loading

We have put together this infographic to provide an overview of recovery and rehabilitation following a finger pulley injury. Regardless of whether you have sustained a minor sprain (grade I) or a full rupture with injury to other muscles and ligaments in the hand (grade IV), we have you covered.
