The trigger finger is a condition where one of your fingers gets stuck in a bent position. Your finger can bend or straighten in the blink of an eye – like a trigger being pulled and released.
The trigger finger is also known as stenosing tenosynovitis (stuh-NO-sing ten-o-sin-o-VIE-tis). This happens when the inflammation narrows the space in the sheath that surrounds the tendon of the affected finger. If the trigger finger is heavy, your finger may get stuck in the bent position.

- Tendons are fibrous cords that connect muscles to bones. Each tendon is wrapped in a protective sheath. The trigger finger occurs when the tendon sheath of the affected finger becomes irritated and inflamed. This disrupts the normal sliding movement of the tendon through the sheath.
Prolonged irritation of the tendon sheath can cause scarring, thickening, and the formation of lumps (nodules) in the tendon, which further impede the movement of the tendon.
Some of the factors that put you at risk for developing trigger fingers include:
Repeated grasping. Occupations and hobbies where the hand is used repeatedly and the grip lasts longer can increase the risk of tripping.
Certain health problems. People with diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis are at higher risk of developing trigger fingers.
Your gender. The trigger finger is more common in women.
