After witnessing first-hand dozens of repetitive stress injuries of the hand, wrist and elbow, Dr. Terry Zachary decided to take some action. The result is the GripSaver Plus. ''Climbers are especially prone to imbalance injuries related to the inherent overuse of the flexor (closing) muscles of the hand and wrist. Climbers, in my experience, are among the strongest of all athletes as far as finger flexion is concerned, yet are very average relative to strength in hand and wrist extension. This leaves them wide open to the threat of repetitive flexion injuries. Climbers must be especially aware of addressing reciprocal muscle balance of the hand and wrist in their training. Not only will they reduce the risk of injury, but they will also improve their performance.'' Dr. Zachary compares this approach with training other body areas. ''When a fitness trainer guides a client through biceps muscle exercises, there will be equal attention focused on exercising the triceps muscle group. The same is true for most muscle groups in the body''. Imported.
