Trigger finger (or “Snapping finger”) occurs when your finger becomes temporarily or permanently locked in position in the palm of your hand making it difficult to straighten. This happens when the tendon in the palm of your hand thickens and gets stuck in the fibrous bands that hold your tendons in place.
Dr Stasch may recommend surgery to correct your trigger finger, usually if other treatments such as steroid injections, anti-inflammatories and a splint have proven unsuccessful.
Trigger finger can happen spontaneously. It is a condition that is more likely to affect women than men and is more common in people in their 40s and 50s. Inuries to your hand, medical conditions including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren’s contracture and some other hand conditions can precipitate the appearance of trigger fingers.
