What is trigger finger?
Trigger finger, also called stenosing tenosynovitis, describes a condition when a person’s fingers feel like they’ve become stuck and may straighten abruptly or feel stiff. Some sufferers describe hearing a popping or clicking sound as well.
Trigger finger can be painful, frustrating and disruptive to your normal everyday activities at work or home (such as typing on a keyboard).
What causes trigger finger?
Trigger finger can occur in people whose routines include repetitively gripping strongly with the hand, but it can also stem from other medical conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. When the tendons in the finger become inflamed, the finger cannot glide normally as it bends, causing trigger finger to develop.
