A 69 year old female presented with a painful, burning right trigger thumb of several months duration. She stated that many times during every day she would bend her thumb only to have it stay in that position, that the thumb was unable to straighten, and that she would have to gently coax it back into a straight position, all while experiencing pain before, during, and after the process. The patient stated that she had had a cortisone injection to her right thumb 3 weeks prior to her visit at this office for the condition, and that the injection caused increased pain for 3 days afterwards before finally returning to the pre-injection pain levels. Multiple pain points were found in the thumb and in the part of the hand below the thumb. These areas were injected. The patient returned in one week and stated that the burning of her thumb and hand was completely gone and that the only pain remained in her two thumb joints. She said that she still had the trigger thumb, but that it wasn’t happening as frequently. The patient was injected in the painful thumb joints. The patient returned in one week and stated that the only pain that she had was in a specfic part of only one of the thumb joints and that it was significantly less. She says that the trigger thumb has only been getting stuck occasionally. We opted to not inject again and to see if it would resolve with the momentum of the previous injections. A follow up phone call several weeks later revealed that all pain and burning was completely gone, as was the trigger thumb issue.
