Topic - Preventing Pulley Injuries

mmmhumous on 12 Jan 2013
I seem to be prone to A2 pulley injuries on my ring and middle fingers. After my first one (shock loaded by falling on to a full crimp) I now tape up, and am trying to avoid crimping in favour of climbing open handed s much as possible. I recently tweaked one due to not warming up enough (did a few diffs-severes, then jumped on a crimpy boulder problem).

Any tips on how to warm up (quickly) to prevent pulley injuries? Does the massage technique used to rehabilitate them work? (i.e. rubbing in the direction of the tendon).
