How To Treat a Finger Pulley Tear or Rupture
Finger pulley sprain, strains and tears 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.
