TRigGer Finger

Trigger finger is a common disorder characterized by catching, snapping or locking of the involved finger flexor tendon and associated pain. The condition occurs due to a tightening of the tendon, however, the underlying cause is unknown. The conditions result in a difficulty flexing or extending the finger and the “triggering” phenomenon. The label of trigger finger is used because when the finger unlocks, it pops back suddenly as if releasing a trigger on a gun.

At the Wells clinic, we employ the use of steroid injections which provide effective relief of pain and stiffness.
