Trigger Finger Treatment in Greensboro, NC

Trigger Finger Condition

The trigger finger, or stenosing tenosynovitis in medical terms, is the painful inflammation of a tendon enclosed in the tendon sheath. Tendons are fibrous connective tissues that enable the bending and extending of the fingers. When it is swollen, and the patient tries to bend the affected finger, the inflamed part is pulled through the narrow tendon sheath, making it pop. Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center offers trigger finger treatment and other types of hand injury treatments such as tennis elbow treatment and carpal tunnel surgery to residents of Greensboro, NC.

Trigger Finger Causes and Symptoms

People who are most likely to get trigger finger are musicians, farmers, and workers who use their fingers forcefully or repetitively. Certain medical conditions such as gout, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis may also cause trigger finger. The most common symptom of a trigger finger is the clicking or snapping that is felt whenever the fingers are bent or extended. Soreness may also be observed at the base of the affected finger.

Trigger Finger Treatment

Patients who are suffering from trigger finger must refrain from doing the activities that can worsen the condition. A splint is placed to restrict the movement of the joint and in some cases; steroid injections are administered to relieve the inflammation. In severe conditions, a surgery may be performed to allow the tendon to glide through the tendon sheath smoothly.
