Trigger Finger Release

About | Costs | FAQs | Our team

This involves the swelling/inflammation of the tendon sheath (tenosynovitis) which makes it difficult to bend the finger or thumb, these can become locked in a bent position towards the palm. You may hear a ‘clicking’ sound as you try to straighten your finger.



In some cases trigger finger resolves itself – or can improve with conservative measures such as steroid injections, splinting and physiotherapy. If the symptoms persist then surgery is a good option. This involves a short procedure under local anaesthetic and the use of a needle to divide the fibres along the tendon sheath to allow easier movement.
