Trigger Finger

Trigger finger, or “stenosing tenosynovitis,” is a common hand condition that can cause discomfort and limit the ability to move one or more fingers. This condition occurs when the flexor tendon in the finger becomes inflamed or irritated, making it difficult to straighten the affected finger. Premier Orthopaedic Associates specializes in providing expert care and advanced treatments for trigger finger, helping you find relief and regain pain-free hand function.

What are the symptoms of trigger finger?

Trigger finger can affect any finger, including the thumb, and is often characterized by a popping or clicking sensation when attempting to move the finger. It can result from repetitive gripping motions, overuse of the hand, or underlying medical conditions. Trigger finger can cause pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion in the affected finger, limiting your daily activities and enjoyment of life.

Diagnosing trigger finger

An accurate diagnosis of trigger finger is essential to determine the severity of the condition and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Our experienced hand specialists employ a thorough evaluation process, which includes a review of your medical history, a physical examination, and, in some cases, diagnostic imaging to assess the affected finger's functionality and rule out other potential causes.

Comprehensive trigger finger treatment

At Premier Orthopaedic Associates, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments and therapies for trigger finger, tailored to address the unique needs of each patient. Our approach includes:

  • Conservative treatments: Many cases of trigger finger can be managed with conservative approaches such as rest, activity modification, and hand exercises to alleviate symptoms and improve hand function.
  • Medication management: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroid injections may be prescribed to relieve pain and reduce inflammation associated with trigger finger.
  • Bracing or splinting: Orthotic braces or splints may be recommended to provide support and reduce strain on the affected finger, promoting healing.
  • Physical therapy: Customized physical therapy programs are designed to strengthen the hand and improve flexibility while reducing pain and inflammation.
  • Minimally invasive procedures: In cases that do not respond to conservative treatments, advanced techniques such as percutaneous trigger finger release may be considered to alleviate the condition and restore normal finger movement.
