Welcome to ProActive Rehab’s patient resource about Trigger Finger and Trigger Thumb.
Trigger finger and trigger thumb are conditions affecting the movement of the tendons as they bend the fingers or thumb toward the palm of the hand. This movement is called flexion.
This article will help you understand:
- how trigger finger and trigger thumb develop
- how doctors diagnose the condition
- what can be done for the problem
Where does the condition develop?
The tendons that move the fingers are held in place on the bones by a series of ligaments called pulleys.
