MSK ULTRASOUND for TRIGGER FINGER DIAGNOSIS
Trigger finger is a painful condition that can cause prolems with pain and loss of mobility of the thumb and fingers. It commonly causes a triggering type sensation with bending and straightening of the fingers. The diagnosis is often straight forward and can be confirmed on physical examination. Occasionally the diagnosis can be difficult to make and MSK ultrasound can be used to confirm the loss of normal tendon gliding and also help guide the injection.
