What is Trigger Finger?

Trigger finger is a condition impacting the tendons responsible for bending the fingers and thumb. As you move your fingers, you may experience a sensation of locking or catching, accompanied by pain and stiffness. While it commonly affects the little finger and thumb, any finger can be impacted, with the condition referred to as trigger thumb when involving the thumb.

What Are The Symptoms of Trigger Finger?

The onset of trigger finger symptoms is gradual and often unrelated to a specific injury. Prolonged use of the hands, particularly activities involving pinching and grabbing, can contribute to the development of symptoms. Key symptoms include:

  • A painful bump on the palm side of the hand at the finger or thumb base
  • Sensations of stopping, popping, or locking during finger or thumb movement
  • Pain when bending or straightening the affected finger
  • Increased stiffness and locking after periods of inactivity, such as waking up in the morning

How is Trigger Finger Treated?

Our approach to trigger finger treatment is personalized based on the severity of your condition. Non-surgical options include:

  • Medications
  • Rest
  • Splints
  • Stretching exercises
  • Steroid injections

For more serious cases or when non-surgical methods prove insufficient, our skilled surgeons may recommend hand surgery. This procedure involves making a small incision near the base of the affected finger to open the narrowed part of the tendon sheath.
