Treatment usually starts with non-surgical options, such as:
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Reducing the frequency of times that you grip things
- Steroid injections
- Wearing a splint
If the symptoms persist, you may wish to undergo surgery.
Trigger finger surgery is a minor procedure with a high success rate, and can be done as day surgery under local anaesthesia. The goal of surgery is for you to regain the normal use of your hand and experience relief from the pain of a trigger finger.
Consult an orthopaedic surgeon to determine the treatment method most suitable for you.
