I have been in and out of climbing for years (for various reasons).
Last time I was climbing I had been taping 2 of my fingers on one hand, the middle and ring fingers - base and middle sections. It seemed to help with some discomfort I had been feeling that I thought was probably related to tendons.
It has been several years since I was climbing regularly. When I started back this week I noticed a feeling in those fingers that is much more muted then it was before but I can tell that it is there. I would have thought a few years would be plenty of time to recover fully.
Is there some sort of treatment or supplement I should consider to try to keep this problem managed before it becomes an injury? I am not climbing anything hard at all. I am starting all the way back at the beginning routes.
Would it be a good idea to start taping now? How do I give my tendons the best chance to adjust?
Any help would be appreciated.
