Condition: Trigger Finger (or Locked Finger)

By overusing the finger, the tendon sheath becomes inflamed. The inflammation interferes with the normal gliding motion of the tendon through the sheath. If the tendon sheath is irritated for a long while, it may develop scarring, thickening, the formation of bumps (nodules) in the tendon that catch and lock the finger.

This health condition is unnerving, because it prevents you from doing everyday work. It gives you a trigger feeling: when you open your hand, you feel stiffness and pain, but it does not give you much trouble when you close your hand.

A common condition that troubles people who use their fingers in repetitive movements, month after month, year after year: hairdressers, masseurs, cleaners, musicians, also sports players.

Chiropractic spinal manipulation, on a relevant spinal level, might improve nerve supply to the hand. Then, DTMT might be one of the most effective treatments of this health condition.
