Drop the Chalupa! (8 дней назад)
I keep getting cramping in the same index finger more and more often for no reason. It's really making typing and everything else that I like to do much more bothersome. I've already had a steroid injection once this year.

Both my thumbs are getting locked parallel or curved towards my index finger(s). They just go numb, they are not sore or painful.

I literally just experienced this about 10 minutes ago, it was terrifying! :( My whole hand just froze up and I couldn't bend my fingers at all. I twisted my wrist around and my fingers had feeling again. Thank you so much for making this video!

Do you refer to physical therapy or occupational therapy for this diagnosis? This most definitely falls under the OT scope of practice...
Benjamin Grimley (5 месяцев назад)
you had my attention until you mentioned acupuncture!
Mike Unher (3 месяца назад)
Benjamin Grimley Haha! Actually, acupuncture, with its 1,000 year-old history of efficacy, has now been included in many mainstream therapies in the US. Western physicians and patients are finally overcoming their prejudices. We really need to open our eyes to all effective forms of treatment, regardless of the culture in which it is practiced-- It might actually alleviate our pain, too!

ophelia2112 (1 год назад)
Thank you Doctor. This video was very helpful! I think I am at the beginning stages of stenosing tenosynovitis... I have the clicking in my thumb not the locking so I will follow your advice of massage and acupuncture. Cortisone shot didn't work for me and doctor recommends surgery. I would like to avoid that if at all possible.
Josh Heatley (1 год назад)
ophelia2112 so did it help I also only have the clicking I had this for like 2 months now and its still not.locking up do you know if I have a trigger finger when I first had it I heard the noise now I just feel it click very rarely I hear it does this mean its getting worse or better???? Can you help me out?

hi, I've got a flare up right now and its quite painful... not sure whether to rest it or to do these exercises... also when i splint it... it feels like theres nerve numbness... would it be wise to rest it in the contracted position?
Jord Denniss (1 год назад)
Hi I think this is what I have in two fingers on each hand both my thumbs and minor in my big toe, I first got it in my left thumb 2 years ago then my right thumb months after then the fingers followed. I've been to the doctors three times in 2 years and the most they gave me was physiotherapy for 2 sessions then sent me home. They don't seem to take this stuff serious, I can't play PlayStation or a computer or anything like that which not being able to use a computer is affecting what work I can do. Do you have any advice please?

Asabi Fatosin (1 год назад)
I developed it in my right hand ring finger. I found that massaging helped a little as well as pushing the tip of the finger against an immovable object, usually my opposite hand. As I was already going to acupuncture, she suggested using Chinese exercise balls. I already had two sets (thank were not being used much) so I began using two different sizes twice a day. This provided dramatic improvement. As I've been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, I'm also losing weight and cutting the junk out of my diet.

Dear Doctor, Just recently I developed a trigger , my middle finger. I was doing the exercises , stretching them and then rubbing the palm area however it has gotten worse. I purchased a finger brace to keep the finger from bending. Am I correct in this?

Hi! what if you can extend the thumb but you CANNOT flex it some of the times ,,is it a trigger thumb??every video on you tube it says the same thing as this video for trigger thumb,,but i have the opposite. nobody speaks about that..
Lorna Gamble (7 месяцев назад)
Vage Men I had the same problem with my finger, it started with locking and after a year ended with a finger I could not longer bend. I had surgery two weeks ago and it feels so good to be able to use my hand again. I have some issues now with muscle stiffness from being unable to bend it so I am doing some stretches at home to help. Good luck!
Brenda Johnson (11 месяцев назад)
I have trigger thumb, I can't bend my finger at all , at first it was popping all the time, now when I do dishes at work it snaps and my thumb hangs with alot of pain it's difficult to snap back in place, and the pain puts tears in my eyes,my thumb will not bend at the knucle
Jump On My Wagon (11 месяцев назад)
me, too! And to flex it, naturally or forced seriously brings tears to my eyes. I am someone who never admits pain -and thi is making me cry.

Just got it on my index finger 3 days ago. Started with pain on my index finger, next day I could barley lift it up. When I lift it up and release tension, it instantly goes into it's "locked" position. Two factors that could have caused this: 1. Injuriy on thumb whilst skiing 4-5 months ago which I still have some pain from (I might actually need to see a doctor for this). It could have somehow affected my index finger. 2. Been playing a lot of console games and it's actually when I was playing on the console that my finger started to hurt. 3. Could be both factors that ultimatley caused this, my thumb injury could have somehow messed with my tendons to the point where it caused damage(or weakness i guess) from playing too much console. Oh and when I smoke weed, it's even harder to move the index finger.

My thumb locks straight, not bent. I can bend it if I use my other hand with no pain, but not bend on it's own. Then, sometimes I can bend it and it hurts bad other times not so much. I've using a cream, but it does not seem to be doing much good.  I hurt it using a straight bar for a cane when my back was out, and I used my palm on the end to lean on.

Is it possible to naturally bend your index dip joint backwards almost 90 deg? And what would cause the ability to be able to do such? Literally bending the tip of the index finger back 90 degrees? Just trying to validate something I cam across... thank you!
Rebecca Schiffman (2 года назад)
I think that's hypermobility. I can bend my fingers like that too. And I'm wondering if hypermobility in my thumb and playing guitar with my thumb bent back is what has caused me to have trigger finger in my thumb.

I have a confirmed diagnosis, after days of DIY, using a wallpaper scraper. devastated as I am a guitarist and used to teach guitar. I splint my affected little finger at night. It seems to reduce impact in the mornings. I think I'll have a diabetes check too.
Thread Atlas (7 месяцев назад)
julie, any updates ?
JulieJackson1 (2 года назад)
Hi. I had an injection which worked very well, but as soon as I started to use it for heavy DIY work (drilling etc), it came back. I now also have a very painful lump where the injection took place. I plan to continue with injections and have an operation as a last resort. I'm told it may cause more weakness. I don't have diabetes. Hope this helps.
RK Vlogs (2 года назад)
Hi Julie, Have you had your surgery? My Doctor advised my to have injections or surgery. I thought I will check with you what did you do?
JulieJackson1 (2 года назад)
+John Perry Hi Doctors don't seem to be very sympathetic, but diabetes test was negative. It's now painful most of the time, so I'm expecting to need some kind of treatment eventually. I can still play but not as well. Just waiting to see what happens. Hope things improve for you.
John Perry (2 года назад)
+JulieJackson1 Hey, I too am a guitarist, but also a diabetic. I have this in my fretting hand pinkie. I've had it for about 3 weeks. It's not painful, but I do have a snap, locking thing going on. I was using the splint at night, but found it may have been irritating the joint. How did you make out?

Ouch. I think I have this, after doing a project at work which required 2 days of different typing than I usually do. I used the tab key so much and held my left hand in the same position for so long, I think it strained something in my 4th finger. Hopefully these exercises work, thank you for posting this Dr. Harrison. :-)

Hi everyone I experience this locking of my fingers on Jan 21,2016 it was a horrible painful experience on both of my hands all fingers were locking up first my left hand each finger back and fourth til my hand just balled up into a fist and I couldn't open my hand all the only thing i could do was shake my hand and cry. finally it opened up but continued to cramp. At the same time the right thumb locked down and was hurting bad then the pinky finger this continued for almost 3hrs I held a ice pack between both hands in a prayer position the entire time after they eased up I was sick to my stomach from the pain and exhausted i was emotionally drained because it hurt so bad I was also scared that it was gonna start up again so I put a pair of gloves on to keep them warm. This was and experience I hope never happen again.
MadderPrinciple (2 года назад)
Exercises are helpful - seeing my doctor again for second cortisone injection hopefully. I don't want to go down the surgical route at this point.  I have been using a compression bandage for the fingers - this has helped a lot too.
WachdByBigBrother (2 года назад)
My thumb got stuck extended, not curved like this video says. Once it got stuck extended, there was no way I could bend it. It was simply too painful. Just did the surgery two days ago instead of doing injections. Steroids are a mixed bag and I wanted to avoid them. Plus my case was extreme enough, I feel I would rather spend the money towards the surgery then I gamble on an injection.
RK Vlogs (2 года назад)
Hi I want to know how is your thumb after surgery? and how much have you paid for it? My Doctor advised me to either have injections which may effect for 2-3 months or to go for a surgery.
Laura Koelber (2 года назад)
I had carpal tunnel release surgery 2 years ago. I have recently developed trigger finger her in the same had ( my ring finger ) mine is in reverse, I can not bend the finger towards my palm. Had a cortisone shot...OUCH! and using anti-inflammatory drug. Let's hope this along with these great hand exercises do the trick!

I was playing basketball today and the ball pushed my pinky finger. I can move all of the finger fine except for the top part with the finger nail. any idea what to do?
Modernista20/20 (3 года назад)
I believe it occurs in people who grip hard on vibrating power tools, bicycle handlebars (my case), motorcycle grips, ski poles and so on. Drugs and injections should only be a last resort. I cured mine in a month with large cushy bicycle grips, a fancy little silver ring splint (when not riding) and stretching excercises.
Prvacy Goune (2 года назад)
+Modernista20/20 Happened to me after shoveling weeds for days on end. Had it many years before that but didn't know what it was. It resolved completely in about 5 months. It wasn't as locked as it is today. I can't even bend my left thumb tip. Probably have to do surgery. I don't care for steroids that are injected repeatedly into tendons or joints. Can cause other problems. Thank goodness I can still type but I've had to change how I do things with my hands and avoid whacking it. I'm going to try Arnica and massage but seems this condition re-occurs and the surgery is about 95% successful. Hate hospitals and chance of infection and the antibiotics which is a whole other thing that ruins your natural immunity. I'm torn about what to do.

+Nova XL My shots worked flawlessly for a year and wasn't too much of a problem for another three years after that. But over the next few years I went back to square one. The second round (actually only one) shot only helped for a month or two. Perhaps knowing about and doing these exercises will help keep it from recurring. Good luck.
Rich Lo (3 года назад)
+Nova XL ah your one of the lucky ones. Only surgery fixed mine. 4 fingers.
SKM1_ (3 года назад)
+Rich Lo yea I've heard about it coming back, but its been 4 years since the shots and it didn't come back yet. I hope it never comes back! it was really annoying.

What is done for Skier's thumb and forefinger, the base joints are distorted and painful, I was a hand quilter, now the pain is so bad I can't even pull a needle. There is Atrophy in between the thumb and forefinger, and the next knuckle over is getting distorted. All 3 fingers will trigger lock for no reason. It is moving to my left hand too.
YT4Me57 (3 года назад)
Five years ago I had trigger release of the left thumb. I recovered well and have absolutely no problems with that thumb today. Recently my right thumb was injured through repetitive struggles with a difficult lock on my wheelchair (that's another story!) Guess what? Here I go again. Hoping to get relief. This was an informative video, thanks for posting.
Eme S'A'ssy (3 года назад)
I had a horrific trigger finger (middle finger on my right hand).  The pain & tight knuckle was severe.  I eventually had a cortisone injection & as painful as the needle was, I am so grateful that in a week I had no symptoms & could use my right hand as before.   Most important; the pain was gone,    Great fix.
k4kale (3 года назад)
I would do that with my thumb but it will not budge at the knuckle near the nail. So now what? I can bend it with my fingers but not on its own. Thanks
