Trigger Finger: I have not heard of this working. Usually i numb the area up, then inject the region under ultrasound to free up the tendon.

Not Sure?: Acupuncture is usually helpful for relieving pain. While trigger fingers do hurt, the pain is coming from the mechanical irritation of the tendon. Acupuncture is unlikely to help this type of pain. You usually need an anti-inflammatory pill or injection.

Trigger finger: Can improve on its own, or with anti inflamm stories or an injection of cortisone and finally surgical release is usually very straightforward.
