    Trigger Finger Treatment

    What is trigger finger?

    Stenosing tenosynovitis, commonly known as trigger finger or trigger thumb, involves the pulleys and tendons in the hand that bend the fingers. The tendons work like long ropes connecting the muscles of the forearm with the bones of the fingers and thumb. In the finger, the pulleys form a tunnel under which the tendons must glide. These pulleys hold the tendons close against the bone. The tendons and the tunnel have a slick lining that allows easy gliding inside the pulleys.

    Trigger finger/thumb happens when the tendon develops a nodule (knot) or swelling of its lining. When the tendon swells, it must squeeze through the opening of the tunnel (flexor sheath) which causes pain, popping, or a catching feeling in the finger or thumb. When the tendon catches, it produces inflammation and more swelling. This causes a vicious cycle of triggering inflammation and swelling. Sometimes the finger becomes stuck (locked) and is hard to straighten or bend.

    What causes trigger finger?

    Causes for this condition are not always clear. The medical conditions of rheumatoid arthritis, gout and diabetes may be associated with trigger finger/thumb symptoms.

    Symptoms of trigger finger

    Trigger finger/thumb may start with discomfort felt at the base of the finger or thumb. A thickening may be found in this area. When the finger begins to trigger or lock, the patient may think the problem is at the middle knuckle of the finger or the tip knuckle of the thumb.

    Trigger finger treatment

    The goal of treatment in trigger finger/thumb is to eliminate the catching or locking and allow full movement of the finger or thumb without discomfort. Swelling around the flexor tendon and tendon sheath must be reduced to allow smooth gliding of the tendon. The wearing of a splint or taking anti-inflammatory medication by mouth or an injection into the area around the tendon may be recommended to reduce swelling. Treatment may also include changing activities to reduce swelling. Be sure to talk to your pharmacist before purchasing anti-inflammatories as these medications may be contraindicated as they may interact with other medications and medical conditions.

    If non-surgical forms of treatment do not improve symptoms, surgery may be recommended by your orthopedist. This surgery is performed as an outpatient. The goal of surgery is to open the first pulley so the tendons glide more freely. Active motion of the finger gradually begins immediately after surgery. Normal use of the hand can usually be resumed once comfort permits. Some patients may feel tenderness, discomfort and swelling about the area of their surgery longer than others. Occasionally, hand therapy is required after surgery to regain better use.

    Hand and Wrist Arthritis Treatment

    Hand & wrist arthritis at a glance

    • Arthritis is painful inflammation and stiffness of the joints. Although there are over 100 types of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are the most common in the hand and wrist.

    • Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes joints on both sides of the body (for example, both wrists) to develop chronic redness, swelling, and pain.

    • Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease and the most common form of arthritis. Basal joint (thumb) arthritis is the most common type of osteoarthritis in the hand, and is a result of the degeneration of the cartilage near the thumb joint.

    • Hand or wrist arthritis symptoms can include swelling, tenderness, sharp pain, stiffness, and difficulty gripping or pinching objects due to decreased strength and range of motion.

    • Treatment includes anti-inflammatory medicines, splinting / bracing the thumb, hand or wrist, and corticosteroid injections. Surgery is also a treatment option for severe cases of hand or wrist arthritis. Be sure to talk to your pharmacist before purchasing anti-inflammatories as these medications may be contraindicated as they may interact with other medications and medical conditions.

    Causes of hand & wrist arthritis

    The exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis is still being researched, although genetics are thought to play a role. Exposure to bacteria or a virus may also cause the immune system to attack the joints.
    Osteoarthritis is often caused by the normal wear-and-tear of aging, but can also be related to obesity, repetitive stress to the joint, and injuries. Additionally, people who have a family history of osteoarthritis or who already have rheumatoid arthritis are more likely to develop osteoarthritis.

    Symptoms of hand & wrist arthritis

    Osteoarthritis symptoms include pain and swelling caused by the bones within a joint rubbing together due to lack of cartilage. Other symptoms include soreness and stiffness when moving the hand or wrist after periods of inactivity, and bone enlargement in the finger joints.

    While rheumatoid arthritis can affect children and the elderly, it is most commonly seen in middle-aged people, with the majority of sufferers being women. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in the hand and wrist include stiffness, pain, and swelling in the joints, which may worsen after periods of inactivity.

    Some patients may develop rheumatoid nodules firm bumps under the skin near the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis can develop quickly or occur gradually over several years.

    Treatment of hand & wrist arthritis

    Treatment for thumb arthritis, hand arthritis or wrist arthritis may include splints, medication and corticosteroid injections. Exercise and hot / cold compresses may also help alleviate symptoms.

    If necessary, a health care provider may recommend physical therapy, removing joint fluid, or injecting medication into the affected joint.

    Surgery may be necessary for severe joint damage or pain that cannot be controlled by medication.
    Additional treatment for rheumatoid arthritis includes medication to relieve pain and suppress the immune system. People with rheumatoid arthritis may be advised to rest their joints during a flare-up, but remain physically active when the inflammation of the joints is lessened.
