The flexor tendons that move the fingers (located on the palm side) stick to the termination parts at the fingertips and pass through the tunnels that we call pulley.
For any reason, it is most often due to congenital and rheumatic diseases, as a result of the narrowing of these tunnels, tendon movement occurs during insertion and trigger finger disease.
The trigger finger is mainly a tendon to form nodules in the pulley region due to inflammatory disease. When the person continues to push, he suddenly sees that his finger moves with the feeling that the tendon is over an obstacle. Here, the click and the sensation of insertion are the symptoms described by the patient. This results in untreated finger failure to move.
The congenital type is diagnosed by the child’s family by observing that his finger remains immobile. In other cases, the person comes to the doctor with the feeling of stuck on his finger.
The treatment of trigger finger disease is surgical resection of the pulley, which causes insertion under local anesthesia. Then physical therapy is started.
