Trigger Finger

Trigger finger is a condition where thickening of the finger tendons cause the finger to “catch” or get stuck while the patient attempts to straighten the affected finger. Tendons are rope-like structures that connect muscles to bone and allow for joint function. With repetitive movements, the tendons in the finger(s) can become inflamed and cause “catching” type symptoms, but eventually can “lock” the finger(s) in place.
