Trigger Finger

best trigger finger treatment in Ipoh

Trigger finger limits finger movement. When you try to straighten your finger, it will lock or catch before

popping out straight.

Trigger finger is a condition that affects the tendons in your fingers or thumb.


Tendons are tissues that connect muscles to bone. When muscles contract, tendons pull on bones.

This is what causes some parts of the body to move.

The muscles that move the fingers and thumb are located in the forearm, above the wrist. Long tendons

— called the flexor tendons — extend from the muscles through the wrist and attach to the small bones

of the fingers and thumb.

These flexor tendons control the movements of the fingers and thumb. When you bend or straighten

your finger, the flexor tendon slides through a snug tunnel, called the tendon sheath, that keeps

the tendon in place next to the bones.


The flexor tendon can become irritated as it slides through the tendon sheath tunnel. As it becomes

more and more irritated, the tendon may thicken and nodules may form, making its passage through

the tunnel more difficult.

The tendon sheath may also thicken, causing the opening of the tunnel to become smaller.

If you have trigger finger, the tendon becomes momentarily stuck at the mouth of the tendon

sheath tunnel when you try to straighten your finger. You might feel a pop as the tendon slips

through the tight area and your finger will suddenly shoot straight out.

The thickened nodule on the flexor tendon strikes the sheath tunnel, making it difficult to straighten

the finger.

The cause of trigger finger is usually unknown. There are factors that put people at greater risk for developing it.

  • Trigger fingers are more common in women than men.
  • They occur most frequently in people who are between the ages of 40 and 60 years of age.
  • Trigger fingers are more common in people with certain medical problems, such as diabetes and 
  • rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Trigger fingers may occur after activities that strain the hand.


Symptoms of trigger finger usually start without any injury, although they may follow a period of heavy hand use.

Symptoms may include:

  • A tender lump in your palm
  • Swelling
  • Catching or popping sensation in your finger or thumb joints
  • Pain when bending or straightening your finger

Stiffness and catching tend to be worse after inactivity, such as when you wake in the morning. Your fingers

will often loosen up as you move them.

Sometimes, when the tendon breaks free, it may feel like your finger joint is dislocating. In severe cases of

trigger finger, the finger cannot be straightened, even with help. Sometimes, one or more fingers are affected.
