Trigger Finger Treatment

Posted 9/6/2017

«Back to News

Trigger finger is a disease of the flexor tendons of the hand. The flexor tendons are the tendons that help you to make a fist. 

These tendons travel through a series of pulleys almost like a sheath in the fingers. As those tendons become irritated, they can swell or the sheath itself can shrink down creating a mismatching size between the tendon and the sheath. This can cause pain, clicking and locking.
