Trigger finger a common condition

TRIGGER FINGER-VO It may sound like it’s caused from shooting a gun, but that’s not what normally causes trigger finger. The condition, when one finger is bent over and gets stuck, is caused when the tendon in the finger gets caught in one of the sheaths in the finger that surrounds it. For some people, the finger will snap back into place, but in some cases, surgery is required to get the finger back to normal.Bible-Gun-1263002One local doctor says the condition is very common – something he sees every week. And if you think you have the condition, consult your family doctor first.“Sometimes we may think it’s from the finger and it’s arthritis or there could be some other thing that’s causing pain in the hand, there are some conditions that cause contractures in the hand,” Dr. Richard Rattay of Mason City Clinic and Mercy Medical Center North Iowa said.
Trigger finger can sometimes be treated by anti-inflammatory medication or a shot of cortisone into the tendon, but in severe cases, surgery is required.
“There are a lot of patients that they’ve kind of been worked up and we may try a cortizone shot and they actually get better and never need surgery but then there are other people who just don’t get better enough or they come in and their finger is already stuck and then those people are better off with surgery,” Rattay said.  triggerfinger  MASON CITY, Iowa –
