I hurt my finger on a finger crack mid November. The finger only hurt on finger cracks or if I intentionally torqued it the wrong way and it was my last desert trip of the season so I didn’t think much of it. Since then I have been training quite hard in the gym and am climbing the hardest I ever have with no issues from the finger whatsoever. I really only rarely thought of the finger, just conscious if I torqued it that it would hurt. The past few days I’ve felt like it was strange that it has been injured for so long without causing any problems. I did some research last night and it looks like a PIP injury.
I guess my question is, should I stop face climbing/training if I can’t feel any pain and it causes no problems? I definitely can’t get on a finger crack with it, so I won’t be doing that. Is a few months of non-Climbing required for it to heal?
Get in touch with Susan Ozaki (who is a climber and I've heard great things about) or Seth Riley (who helped me with a FDP and FDS strain and A4 sprain), both with Hand and Ortho. They have several offices here locally.
