Trigger finger is a condition that affects one or more of the hands tendons, which makes it difficult to bend the affected finger or thumb. Trigger finger occurs if there’s inflammation and swelling of tendon or sheath. It is commonly seen in women and  people above 40 years old, and those with certain medical conditions. A 46 year old female was brought in severe condition. She had very much difficulty in moving and bending her thumb of right hand. History revealed that she was suffering from trigger finger disease since 6 months. She had taken modern treatment which included steroids and NSAID drugs but got no significant relief and finally advised surgery for it1. She was successfully treated with external and internal medication of Ayurveda. She got significant relief in pain and movement of thumb and her quality of life was markedly improved. This case study demonstrates that trigger finger condition can be well managed with Ayurvedic medicines.
