Tenosynovitis

Whether your finger problems are caused by arthritis or repetitive motion from work or a hobby, we can treat the tendon that is causing your finger or fingers to lock in place. In many cases, tenosynovitis — also called trigger finger — responds to home care, but our doctors may consider more involved procedures if your pain persists.

Overview

The first step in your treatment may be rest. We may also prescribe medications for pain and inflammation and have you ice your finger. Our physical therapists can help you with gentle stretching exercises to increase your finger’s range of motion, and work with you to prevent a reoccurrence. In more severe cases, we may inject a more powerful anti-inflammatory, or use a needle or minor surgery to open the tendon sheath and unlock your finger.
