Treatment Options

Typically the non-operative treatments for this kind of condition would involve oral anti-inflammatory medications like Motrin or Advil or Aleve, Ibuprofen. Those help decrease the inflammation in the tendon and in the pulley system and actually can sometimes help the condition be much more tolerable. Other things that we can do are to splint the finger as well. Typically splitting it straight, it makes the finger not as functional, but it does help decrease the symptoms should these things not seem to be helping with the condition, a lot of times patients are given the choice for a corticosteroid injection of Cortisone, for example, into the area of the tendon. This helps shrink down the tendon and it helps open up the tunnel so that it doesn’t trigger and catch. Typically in patients without diabetes, this is a pretty effective treatment.
