Trigger Finger Treatment in Chapel Hill, NC

Trigger finger, a condition also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, occurs when the thumb, or other finger, becomes crooked or bent, only to release from the bent position with a snap. The reason why it is called trigger finger is because it resembles the motion of pulling a trigger. When the case is severe enough, the finger may become locked in the bent position. Inflammation of tendons within the tendon sheath is primarily the cause of this often painful condition.

Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center offers trigger finger treatment to residents of Chapel Hill, NC, and other nearby cities. A thorough evaluation of the finger is necessary to determine the level of severity of the problem. Milder cases of trigger finger can be treated through different approaches, while severe cases may be addressed through more aggressive procedures. For instance, mild cases may be treated through finger exercises, splinting and the avoidance of repetitive motions. The treatment of more serious cases may involve the use of steroids, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and percutaneous finger release. Another treatment for severe cases involves surgery to address the problem. Residents of Chapel Hill, NC, can contact Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center for more information about trigger finger treatment.
