You do not need strengthening exercise because trigger finger is not caused by lack of strength in your finger, but it is an issue related to the tendon surrounding the joint. Exercises for trigger finger require a tender touch because you are not working on a healthy joint. Simply putting your finger in warm water and rotating it lightly is enough to warm up the tendons. You can also massage your finger to help regain its range of motion. Moreover, it is equally important to avoid repetitive gripping of objects until the issue has been resolved. Here are some specific trigger finger exercises that may help improve your condition.
Non-surgical treatment of trigger finger is generally a short-term solution. If the condition does not respond to conservative measures or consistently recurs, trigger finger surgery may be recommended to fully release the tendon sheath and restore movement. At the Hand Surgery Center of Excellence, long-term relief for patients with problems of the hand and fingers is our top priority. Our surgeons are skilled in the comprehensive care of trigger finger, and if necessary, uniquely adept at the most advanced surgical procedures for trigger finger release.
