What is Trigger Finger (aka. stenosing tenosynovitis or stenosing tenovaginosis)

Trigger finger is a condition making it difficult to bend an affected finger or thumb as one or more of the hand's TENDONS can not move freely through the TENDON SHEATHS  - the tendon can then bunch up and get "caught" in the tendon sheath "tunnel" it runs through. This can affect movement of the affected finger or thumb and can also cause the finger / thumb joints to get stuck in a bent position, which results in a painful click or pop when it straightens.

Usually affects the thumb, ring finger or little finger

-   One or more fingers can be affected

-   May develop in both hands - more common in the right hand (likely because most people are right-handed)
