trigger finger and thumb

This condition prevents you from straightening your finger. Trigger finger occurs when tendons controlling your hand experience restricted movement. Symptoms may include swelling, pain, a lump in your palm and a tendency for a finger to lock before suddenly popping into place. Treatments may include rest, medicine, injections and surgery. To understand the surgical procedure, you need to know that the tendons controlling your hand are in your forearm. They reach your hand by passing through a tunnel known as the tendon sheath. Sometimes the tendons become enlarged, making passage through the tunnel difficult. If this happens, a surgeon will widen it. Most surgical patients experience immediate relief, although complete recovery may take months.
