Then I met a guy who told me what I will tell you.
Rest, Rest, Rest. You can do the RICE routine, later, you can massage the joints, but let it rest. I know, telling a young active person to rest is tough but that is what will fix it.
I stopped climbing for 16 months in 1992 and when I came back, I did all the exercises I was told to do. Since that time, I have not had a problem and I did quite a bit of climbing after the injury. Surgery would be the last desperate thing I would think of. just FYI.
