What are symptoms of trigger finger?
Symptoms of trigger finger
may occur when any of the four fingers of the hand attempts to flex closed while gripping. Instead of a smooth, continual closure, the digit
hesitates, then snaps closed. When attempting to extend the digit, a similar
hesitation may occur before it "snaps" into full extension. In severe cases, the
digits must be manually brought into full extension or flexion. The closure is frequently associated with pain at the base of the digit on the palm of the hand. Triggering
can also affect the thumb.
