Trigger finger: not always work related.

Author information

  • 1University of Louisville, USA.


A retrospective chart review of 516 patients with 719 trigger fingers was undertaken to determine the relationship between trigger finger and occupation. Of the 516 patients, 361 were employed. One hundred seventy-eight (34.5%) of the employed patients had trigger fingers related to heavy lifting and/or high force gripping activities. The decision of causation is arbitrary and not based on science.
