FITBEAST is pleased to announce a comprehensive set of exercises specifically designed for patients recovering from trigger finger surgery. These exercises aim to restore normal hand function, improve finger mobility, and accelerate the recovery process.

Trigger finger, medically known as stenosing tenosynovitis, is a condition characterized by the finger getting locked in a bent position, causing considerable discomfort and limiting daily activities. Surgical intervention is often necessary to treat this condition when conservative treatments fail to provide relief.

"Rehabilitation exercises after trigger finger surgery play a crucial role in helping patients regain finger motion, reduce swelling, and restore overall hand function," says Dr. Jane Doe, a renowned hand surgeon and spokesperson for FITBEAST. "These exercises, when performed properly and under professional guidance, can significantly expedite the recovery process and enhance patients' quality of life."

exercises to do after trigger finger surgery

To aid individuals in their recovery journey, FITBEAST has developed an expert-recommended exercise routine after trigger finger surgery, encompassing both strengthening and range of motion exercises. It is essential to note that patients must consult a healthcare professional or a hand therapist before starting any exercise regimen to ensure the exercises are suitable for their specific condition.

Strengthening Exercises:

1. Squeeze Balls: Hold a soft ball in your palm and squeeze it with all your fingers for 5 seconds, then release. Repeat this exercise 10 times on each hand.

2. Finger Bends: Place a rubber band around your fingers, and open your fingers against its resistance, holding the position for 5 seconds. Repeat the exercise 10 times on each hand.

3. Finger Lifts: Place your hand flat on a table and lift each finger individually while keeping the others down. Repeat this exercise 5-10 times for each finger.

Range of Motion Exercises:

1. Finger Flexion and Extension: Gently bend and straighten each finger individually while keeping the others in a relaxed position. Perform 5-10 repetitions for each finger.

2. Finger Abduction and Adduction: Spread your fingers out as far as possible and then bring them back together. Repeat this exercise 5-10 times.

3. Thumb Flexion and Extension: Bend and straighten your thumb, moving it away from your palm and back again. Repeat 5-10 times on each hand.

In addition to these exercises, patients are encouraged to practice gentle stretching, massage, and ice therapy to reduce swelling, pain, and stiffness. It is essential to adhere to the recommended exercise frequency and duration, gradually increasing intensity as advised by a healthcare professional.

Dr. Doe highlights, "While performing these exercises, patients should closely monitor their pain levels. Mild discomfort during exercise is normal, but sharp or severe pain should be immediately reported to a healthcare professional." She adds, "Patience and consistency are key during recovery, as it may take several weeks or even months to regain full hand function."

Patients can also benefit from specialized hand therapy services offered by FITBEAST. These services provide personalized guidance, support, and treatment plans for a successful recovery from trigger finger surgery. A hand therapist will work closely with patients, using various modalities and techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes.
