Trigger Finger (Tendonitis)
SYMPTOMS OF TRIGGER FINGER
CAUSES OF TRIGGER FINGER
Your Treatment Options
In order to treat trigger finger the first step is to usually resolve the swelling of the tendon sheath. Early treatment can be as simple as hot/cold packs, anti-inflammatory medications, and splinting to reduce the repetitive motion of the affected finger. Resting the tendon is the important thing, so inflammation is allowed to subside and proper healing can begin. Your hand therapist can give you strengthening exercises and start you on a regular therapy regimen.
If non-surgical forms of treatment don’t alleviate the symptoms of trigger finger then your surgeon may recommend a surgery to release the tendon from the inflamed sheath. Normal use of the hand will then be resumed once comfort permits. Post-operative hand therapy may be recommended to help regain better use of the hand.
