Trigger Finger Disorder is a condition in which the tendons in a finger become swollen and inflamed. The swollen tendon can no longer fit easily through the tissue covering the tendon, so when the finger is bent and the swollen tendon is forced through the narrow piece of tissue, or tendon sheath, the finger pops and catches, which can be painful. People who repeat the same movements with their fingers are at risk of getting Trigger Finger Disorder, as well as individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and diabetes. Trigger Finger Disorder can be treated by resting the affected finger. Depending on the severity of the condition, a splint or anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed. Most individuals with Trigger Finger Disorder fully recover within a few weeks.
