Our expert Certified Hand Therapists (CHT) will perform a full evaluation and together you will come up with a customized treatment plan for your trigger finger.

What is Trigger Finger?

Trigger finger, also known as Stenosing Tenosynovitis, is a condition in which one of your fingers gets stuck in a bent position. Your finger may straighten with a snap — like a trigger being pulled and released.

Trigger Finger Symptoms

  • Finger stiffness, particularly in the morning
  • A popping or clicking sensation as you move your finger
  • Tenderness or a bump (nodule) in the palm at the base of the affected finger
  • Finger catching or locking in a bent position, which suddenly pops straight
  • Finger locked in a bent position, which you are unable to straighten

Common Causes of Trigger Finger

People whose work or hobbies require repetitive gripping actions are at higher risk of developing trigger finger. The condition is also more common in women and in anyone with diabetes.

 If Left Untreated

Pain can worsen and locked finger can prevent free use of the hand.

Negative Affects of Trigger Finger

Decreased independence with daily living activities.
