Trigger Finger

Are the Wrist Wraps a good treatment for Trigger Finger? I can't tell from the pictures if it would be able to wrap around my hand and fingers.

Hi Betty,

The wrist wraps work great for treating Trigger Finger. The wraps themselves are rectangular shaped and very flexible in the areas in which they can treat, including the hand and fingers. Trigger Finger however usually arises from inflammation within the wrist or forearm (which the wrist wrap also covers).

Moving your fingers uses the muscles in your forearm, a strain from overuse or damage caused by an accident or injury can than cause inflammation in the tendons in your forearm which causes pain in the hand and fingers. If the tendons in your wrist are inflamed it than adds pressure to the nerve which are also passing through the wrist and results in pain anywhere along your nerve.

The ColdCure should be applied directly over where the inflammation / swelling is, this is not necessarily where you feel the pain or where the injury has been sustained. The BFST on the other hand should be placed over the underlying issue as it heals the injury which is causing the inflammation and helps to prevent further aggravation and inflammation flare ups if it's used before any activity that would be strenous to that injury.
