The Trigger Finger disorder is a highly common disorder which received its name due to the popping sound that the finger generates when it unlocks, resembling the sound of releasing a gun’s trigger. This ailment involves the catching, locking or snapping of a finger flexor tendon, generating symptoms such as the formation of a tender lump in the palm, followed by swelling and pain when trying to bend or straighten the finger also, a popping sensation in the joints is most likely to develop.
It mostly occurs in women between the ages of 40 and 60 or in people working and having hobbies that involve a repetitive gripping action. The practitioners found at the Renew Skin and Health Clinic may recommend that you undergo physiotherapy (which includes a trial of heating modalities followed by sustained non-ballistic stretching of the flexor tendon, as well as soft-tissue mobilization of the A1 pulley) as a possible treatment.
However, the most effective procedure is minor surgery which is performed under a local anesthetic thus being painless and it involves a small incision being made in the palm sometimes with the tip of a needle, in order to release the affected area, allowing the tendon to move freely once again. The recovery time can vary from individual to individual, but with the highly qualified specialists found at Renew Skin and Health Clinic, you can rest assured that the recovery will be effective and fast.
