News just in from our client, Orthopaedic Surgery Associates about Do You Have Trigger Finger? Here’s What You Need to Know

Trigger finger (tenosynovitis) can be a painful condition. It causes the finger to catch or lock in a bent position. It most commonly occurs in the fourth (ring finger) or the thumb. It can affect one finger or more than one and also may affect the hands.

The cause is inflammation of the tendon sheath. Tendons connect bones to muscles and are covered by a sheath. When the sheath becomes inflamed, it becomes difficult for the tendon to glide. The sheath becomes irregular and tight, which causes trigger finger.

Fortunately, if you have trigger finger, our orthopedic doctors in Boca Raton can help. First, doctors will recommend non-surgical conservative treatment methods such as medication, therapy, splinting, or steroid injections. If conventional treatment methods have failed, your physician may recommend surgery.
