Trigger Finger – Causes, Symptoms & Treatment

Will a Manual Job be Impacted if I Have Trigger Finger and its Surgery?

Those whose job requires manual labor, such as welders, blacksmiths, carpenters and tailors, are particularly prone to trigger finger. Though the condition can eventually lead to disability, surgery is usually effective in reversing it. Furthermore, the risk of permanent disability due to hand surgery has decreased in recent years due to advances in technology.

You should talk to your doctor about carrying on with your job after the operation. There is not a definite proof that any job would lead to finger triggering returning. But tension can cause it in the beginning and may also cause it to come back in certain careers.
