Topic - A1 pulley injury advice

mikekeswick - on 09 Jan 2013
A few months ago I was bouldering at Brimham, I ended up trying an eliminate problem with tiny crimpy edges whilst not at all warmed up....
The next day I had a bit of pain in my middle finger around the a1 pulley. It hurt for a few days but then seemed to get better pretty quickly. I rested it for a week or so then only did light climbing with the finger taped for a few more weeks. I've now started trying harder stuff again but
the problem is that although experiencing no pain during climbing it is tender the next day if I squeeze the area.
I've got an appointment with a hand specialist on the 22nd and am hoping he can shed some light on what exactly is wrong but in the mean time there must be something proactive that I can do to help myself. I've read about massaging the area and using ice after climbing.
Any advice??
