Trigger Finger (TF) or Stenosing Tenosynovitis

TF is a condition in which one of the fingers gets stuck in a bent position. The finger may bend or straighten with a snap-like a trigger being pulled and released.

It occurs when inflammation narrows the space within the sheath that surrounds the tendon in the affected finger. If TF is severe, your finger may become locked in a bent position. It is one of the most common causes of hand pain and disability.

The exact etiology remains unknown, but certain conditions such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis may predispose an individual to triggering of the digit. People whose work or hobbies require repetitive gripping actions, and also women, are at higher risk of developing TF.

Non-surgical treatments consist of stretching exercises, corticosteroid injection, and acupuncture.


At the impaired A1 pulley site is an effective treatment for trigger finger (by reducing inflammation/swelling of the synovial membrane of the tendon sheath) which predominates when the disorder is of short duration.

Facial Acupuncture

Is a full constitutional treatment that views the face as an extension of the meridians of the body, nerves and muscles, which flow from the soles of the feet to the crown of the head.

When the face is needled, blood flow and Qi (energy) carries nutrients to the cells; the body interprets the insertion of the needle as a “positive” injury (micro-trauma), which, in turn, through “stimulation of fibroblast, can increase collagen output”.
