Trigger Finger

Trigger Finger, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis or flexor tendonitis, is a condition where one of the fingers or thumb of the hand is caught in a bent position. The affected digit may straighten with a quick snap, similar to pulling and releasing the trigger on a gun, hence the name trigger finger.

The triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) is a complex of tissues – cartilage and ligaments – located near the outer region of the wrist, below the little finger. The complex stabilizes the wrist, allows easy movement and acts as a shock absorber. Sports activities or falls can damage or injure the TFCC, causing wrist pain and instability. The injured TFCC complex may also produce a clicking sound with certain wrist movements.
