Trigger Finger causes and treatment #shorts

Trigger finger Pathophysiology

Trigger finger, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, is a condition that affects the tendons in the fingers or thumbs. It is characterized by inflammation of the tendons, which can cause the affected finger or thumb to get stuck in a bent position or "trigger" as it straightens out.

There are several possible causes of trigger finger. One common cause is repetitive hand activities that involve gripping or squeezing, such as typing, playing a musical instrument, or using hand tools. Another possible cause is certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis, which can lead to inflammation of the tendons.

Treatment options for trigger finger depend on the severity of the condition and may include rest, splinting, and physical therapy. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to release the affected tendons and allow the finger to move freely again.
