What is trigger finger?
Trigger finger, or stenosing tenosynovitis, is a condition where a finger becomes fixed in a bent position. The finger may sharply straighten or bend back into position, similar to a trigger being pulled. Trigger finger may develop if the tendon sheath in the affected finger become inflamed or irritated as a result of frequent gripping and use of the hands. Certain health conditions, such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, may also contribute to trigger finger.
How is trigger finger treated?
Trigger finger treatment will vary based on the severity of the tendon sheath inflammation and the patient’s overall health. At Physicians Rehabilitation, we tailor our treatment plans to achieve the best possible outcomes for each patient.
