Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

The focus of the study was to evaluate the impact of trigger finger (TF) from a biopsychosocial perspective. Although TF is considered to be mild hand pathology, we found that it has a wide-ranging impact. Activity, participation, and quality of life should be addressed when treating people with TF.
