Trigger Finger

The common causes of trigger finger are the behaviors or activities that involves using hands continuously for hours, for instance, carrying or lifting heavy things, using any devices that need to put a lot of pressure on, using a smartphone, tablet, or computer for hours continuously. Trigger finger is usually occur on people aged between 40 – 60 years old, and this condition is more common for women than men.

Trigger Finger’s Symptoms

  • Pain and swelling in the hand at the base of the affected finger
  • Finger stiffness

Normally, the symptoms particularly occur in the morning or when using hands continuously. If you have stiffness in your finger or your finger locks when you bend it, seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Currently, there is a non-surgical treatment for trigger finger which is called “Ultrasound-guided percutaneous trigger finger release”. During the procedure, the doctor will insert a special type of needle into the finger and then, open the affected tendon sheath to break apart the constriction that blocks the motion of the tendon in the finger. Most importantly, this non-surgical treatment is done under ultrasound imaging, so you can be assured that the nearby tendons and nerves wouldn’t be damaged. This treatment can be done in approximately 5 minutes. It will leave no incision scar and the patient can wash the hands with water after 24 hours after the procedure.
