Trigger Thumb Symptoms

One of the most common symptoms associated with Trigger Thumb is the "snapping" or "locking" of the PIP joint of the thumb, and second, the "snapping" or "locking" of the MP joint of the thumb into the palm of the hand. This most common symptom is experienced due to an adhesion or nodule that has developed on the thumb flexor tendon, most often resulting from scar tissue that has developed due to micro tears of the tendon.

Trigger Thumb, or stenosing tenosynovitis, can result from micro-tears by either direct trauma or chronic overuse.  The flexor pollicis longus tendon develops nodules / adhesions on it, which leads to increased friction as the tendon passes through the pulley system, resulting in the irritation and swelling of the tendon, its sheath and the associated nodules on the tendon.  This irritation / inflammation cycle increases the size of the nodules or adhesions, causing the dysfunction to greatly increase as the thumb is flexed over and over. 

Essentially, the nodule or adhesion on the affected tendon in the thumb gets trapped as it passes through the pulley system as the thumb is flexed but the thumb cannot return via extension in the same smooth manner due to the adhesion or nodule getting stuck or “catching” as it tries to pass back through the pulley system.  Because of this, the thumb tends to lock down into the palm of the hand as well as produces painful catching or clicking that is commonly associated with Trigger Thumb.

Performing corrective exercises with FLEXTEND® / RESTORE™ can reduce scar tissue on the tendon as well as help stretch and thin the tendon, allowing it to move freely through the pulley system. This training system is very simple and effective therapy, taking just minutes per day.


About two years ago I began to experience the problem of Trigger Finger. Fingers on both hands would "lock" whenever I made a fist or clinched my hands. This would require my actual bending the affected finger back to an extended position.

The initial therapy for this problem was to have injections in the palms of each hand. This temporary solution worked for a few months. After the third series of injections, I was advised to have surgery to correct the problem, which by now was becoming quite painful at times.

After having two separate visits to the same-day surgery facility at the local hospital my condition became worse. There was so much pain at night when my entire hand would "close". It was painful to straighten out my fingers. In short, I had a new problem, which required physical therapy.

It was during my physical therapy sessions that I learned about FLEXTEND® as a method to resolve my problem. Within a short period of time I began to experience substantial relief from my painful symptoms. Within six weeks I was symptom free. If it were not for using the FLEXTEND® exercises I would have continued to experience the painful comfort caused by the two separate surgeries.

If I had known about FLEXTEND® when I first began to experience the symptoms of "trigger finger" I would have avoided the unpleasant and expensive treatments mentioned above.
