Trigger Finger

Trigger Finger is a common condition of the hand, which is most prevalent amongst women over the age of 50. The thumb is normally the first digit to be affected, the condition then spreading later to the middle, index and ring fingers.

The cause of this bothersome and painful condition is a thinning infection of the synovial tendon sheath. Synovial tendon sheaths serve as a covering to the flexor and tensor tendons on the hand and wrist, allowing them to move. Should they become thinner due to an infection, or decrease in fluidity, the tendons can no longer glide freely within them. The consequence is a painful rubbing sensation when the finger is bent, and in an advanced stadium, a snapping, jerking movement of the tendon.
