What is stenosing tenosynovitis?

Stenosing tenosynovitis is a repetitive strain injury more commonly known as trigger finger, which can result in the finger or thumb being locked into a bent or flexed position. The condition can affect workers whose jobs include using vibrating machinery where the correct protection has not been supplied.

Symptoms include:

  • Clicking joints
  • Firmness and throbbing
  • Nodules (abnormal growths)

For many people, trigger finger will go away after a short period of time and will not cause any significant inconvenience to the sufferer. However, in some cases, the injury may be accompanied by significant scarring or knotting to the tendons in the finger or thumb, causing the tendon to become repeatedly stuck in what is known as the ‘tendon sheath’. 

Causes of tenosynovitis

Although trigger finger often occurs as a result of genetic factors or an underlying illness, in other cases it can be caused by work, meaning it is classed as an industrial disease. Workers who are likely to be affected by the condition include those who work with power tools, carry out repetitive tasks or operate vibrating machinery.

Your employer is responsible for putting measures in place to reduce the risk of trigger finger. If they have failed to provide a safe working environment, you will be able to make a claim.
