  • Trigger finger treatment options

    Some Trigger Fingers will resolve spontaneously. Splinting of the affected digit for a brief period may help resolve the symptoms. Over the counter anti-inflammatories may also help to relieve pain and inflammation. If the symptoms do not spontaneously resolve within six weeks, a more aggressive form of treatment may be required.


    The first line of treatment for most patients is a cortisone injection into the A-1 Pulley of the affected digit.
