Trigger Fingers involve the thickening and irregularity of the tendons which connect the forearm muscle with the fingers causes them to get stuck in the pulleys that hold the tendons against the bones at each joint.

This can cause pain and locking of the fingers in a flexed position and when they are forcibly straightened with the other hand, they “click”—giving them the name “trigger” finger.

This is usually treated by injection to the area, often in the doctor’s office.
