Trigger finger is an inflammation of the tendon of one or more fingers. If you have the condition, it is usually difficult to extend or straighten the affected finger. Occasionally, when trying to open or extend the finger, it will pop or “trigger” out into a straight position.
Anti-inflammatory medications or steroid injections may provide effective treatment for a trigger finger. However, surgery may be required to repair the finger in some cases.
