Case description

Trigger finger is a condition, where the involved finger will catch as it bends and it will pop or snap when straightened. The flexor tendon becomes thick and irritated as it slides through the tendon pulley, causing a thickened nodule and triggering of the tendon. The discrepancy between the diameter of the tendon and the size of the pulley opening causes the triggering. The symptoms are: pain that may be located in the palm at the base of the finger. Tenderness at the A1 pulley. What are the causes and risk factors? It is more common in woman, people with diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, repetitive injuries, or it may be occupational. Treatment is presented. Each of the technique is briefly explained and commented.
