How to Treat Trigger Thumb Treatment without Surgery
The pain and annoyance of trigger finger or trigger thumb, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis does not have to be a permanent facet of one’s life. When it comes to treatment for trigger finger, non-surgical care is an option, and a successful one of many. Treating trigger thumb can be a non-invasive and inexpensive undertaking. But it is important to follow the instructions of a medical professional.
Trigger finger/thumb refers to when one of these digits gets stuck in a bent position and when it does straighten out, it does so with a snap (like a trigger being released). This is caused by a narrowing of the sheath through which the tendon passes for finger movement. This narrowing might be caused by repetitive gripping, as is involved in some hobbies and jobs.

Wearing splints for trigger thumb is often a component of treatment. This particular one eases pressure on the problematic area. Some other thumb splints for trigger thumb hold the finger or thumb still, giving it a rest and allowing inflammation to subside. And simply seeing the splint on the hand can act as a helpful reminder to be careful with the finger and to avoid irritating activities.
Some alternative treatments for trigger thumb might include one or several of the following:
- Performing exercises for trigger thumb treatment
- Avoiding irritating activities like repetitive gripping
- Soaking the pained hand in warm water
- Massaging the finger
Unfortunately, not all instances of trigger thumb can be treated without surgery. In severe cases, trigger finger/thumb surgery may be necessary.
