Some of the non-operative treatments that are available for trigger finger involve things like splinting, oral, anti inflammatories, and even injections into the hand. With splinting. The finger is typically immobilized straight. That helps prevent the finger from getting stuck in the palm. As with splinting, any extremity, it is a little bit difficult and patient compliance is not always the best. From my standpoint, I completely understand because when your finger can’t bend, it renders it nonfunctional. And although you’re helping your trigger finger, you’re limiting the use of the hand and the hand is what makes us human and most of us need that to do our activities of daily living and even work.
