Trigger Thumb : Sometimes a trigger thumb can be treated with an injection of a corticosteroid into the tendon sheath. However, if this doesn't work then surgery is really the way to go. Its a simple procedure that only takes minutes to perform and can solve the problem with minimal risk and downtime.
