Trigger Finger

Trigger finger is a common hand condition that can cause pain, stiffness, and the inability to straighten your fingers. It occurs when the tendons in your fingers become inflamed or irritated. This inflammation makes it difficult for the tendon to move freely within its sheath as you bend and straighten your finger. As a result, you may experience catching or locking of one or more of your fingers as they are bent and released repeatedly.

Trigger finger is most commonly caused by repetitive activities such as typing on a computer keyboard for long periods of time without taking breaks; using vibrating tools like drills; gripping heavy objects over an extended period; playing certain musical instruments (like a guitar); knitting/crocheting too often; even lifting weights at gyms can put extra strain on hands leading to trigger finger development. In some cases though, no specific activity has been identified as causing trigger thumb – medical conditions like diabetes may also be responsible for triggering this condition in some individuals who have weakened immune systems due to poor metabolic control.

Symptoms associated with Trigger Finger include a painful clicking sensation when trying to flex/extend affected digit(s), tenderness around the base joint area where the tendon attaches itself onto the bone structure (palm side), restricted range-of-motion while attempting full extension - sometimes accompanied by “catching” sensation before releasing back into a flexed position., swelling & stiffness near involved joints which further restricts movement potentiality...etc

Treatment options vary depending upon severity but typically involve either nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen & naproxen sodium used to reduce inflammation plus steroid injections directly into the affected region if NSAID therapy fails to provide relief from symptoms experienced due to excessive irritation present within tissues surrounding tendons themselves. Surgery is done only last resort after all other methods fail to improve the situation of the patient suffering from debilitating effects triggered by thumb syndrome.
