I agree, likely pulley strain, maybe with some lumbrical involvement, given the palm pain.
These can be 1-6 months, and sometimes they never get back to truly 100%. The injury is almost unknown outside of the rockclimbing community, so you may see some frustration as you seek out doctors who are familiar with the injury.
Keep it moving. AROM.
I'd like to see a study, that compared between groups. One group doing dedicated AROM. Next doing AROM with 55 deg. Lewis reaction baths. Next group doing the baths only.
My admittedly biased opinion would be...AROM group showing faster healing than cold bath group, with a statistically insignificant difference between AROM, and AROM plus bath groups. But I'd like to see the study.
