What Is Trigger Finger?
Trigger finger is a common problem that can cause a locking sensation and pain in one or more fingers. This disorder is usually caused by repeatedly grasping or gripping a certain object (steering wheel while driving, a racket while playing tennis or badminton, or even a cellphone, for instance), which eventually breaks down the fat pad at the base of the finger. When this fat pad starts to break down, the tendon underneath—which is responsible for helping the finger bend—begins to swell. It is precisely this swelling that causes the locking sensation and pain that you feel whenever you try to move your finger. Trigger finger is also more common with people who have diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis, and occurs more often in women. Visit our library to read more about trigger finger
