Symptoms occur when trying to flex or extend your hand to grip. Instead of a smooth open and close action, your finger(s) shutter and then snap open or closed.

What causes trigger finger?
Inflammation or scarring around the tendons of the hand cause this problem.

What is the treatment for trigger finger?
Stretching, ice, and anti-inflammation treatments can be helpful. If this does not alleviate the problem, bones may be out of place and need to be moved back into place for better and efficient movement of the hand. Also, Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization does wonders for this condition and can be done in our office!
