What is Trigger Finger?
is a condition in which the patient’s fingers catch or lock when bent. The patient is unable to relax the finger, and the condition can create pain and stiffness in the hand
. Repeated, forceful movement of the fingers can cause tendon swelling that leads to trigger finger.
Trigger finger results from the inflammation of the tendons
inside the finger. Tendons are rigid bands of tissue that connect muscles and bones, and are what assist your muscles in moving and bending your finger position. These tendons should glide easily through the surrounding tissue (sheath) with the help of the synovium
, which functions as a lubricant for the tendon. As the tendon becomes irritated or inflamed, it begins to swell, and has difficulty moving fluidly through the surrounding sheath. The tendon struggles to move naturally and can eventually snap or pop
