Have you begun to notice that one of the fingers in your hand bends and straightens in a more rigid fashion than others? Are you someone who works a job that requires gripping and holding things on a daily basis? If you answered “yes” to both questions, you may be suffering from a condition called trigger finger or are at risk of it.
Trigger Finger refers to a condition wherein one of the fingers in a person’s hand becomes stuck at a certain position. The finger bends or straightens only with a snap, similar to how a trigger of a gun is pulled and released. The scientific name for the condition is “stenosing tenosynovitis.” At the Hand and Microsurgery Medical Group, we are the premier San Francisco trigger finger surgery specialists.
