What is trigger finger?
How can trigger finger be treated?
Can the pain associated with trigger finger be relieved?
Minimising the strain on the finger may alleviate the pain and discomfort. If you think the injury is due to working with a computer mouse, it may be advisable to change your working methods. You can even swap your mouse for a more ergonomic mouse, which will relieve the strain on your hands and fingers by enabling you to use both hands and/or reducing the number of mouse clicks.
Note: If you develop symptoms of mouse arm that might be related to your job, you should speak to your employer or health and safety representative (HSR). If you work a lot with a computer, you can investigate the possibility of changing your work assignments or swapping your traditional computer mouse for an ergonomic mouse, as this may contribute to relieving your pain. If your symptoms persist, we advise you to contact your doctor.
