Consider a shot: With trigger finger, patients can experience painful clicking or locking of the fingers. This is usually problematic in the early mornings. Corticosteroid injections can be quite effective at alleviating or even curing the problem outright. Consult your hand surgeon for details. Occasionally, surgery is helpful to eliminate the problem entirely.

Le me help you: Treatment for trriger thumb wll be. This includes oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, steroid injection, and judicious use of a a hand-based splint that prevents motion of the metacarpophalangeal (mp) and interphalangeal (ip) joints of the thumb (each maintained in 15 degrees of flexion). If those do not work surgery is very effective.
