Trigger Thumb, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, is a condition that affects the tendons in the hand, specifically in the thumb.

This inflammation can result from repetitive thumb movements, certain medical
conditions, or congenital factors. The primary symptom of Trigger Thumb is difficulty in smoothly moving the thumb. People with this condition often experience:
