Abstract

Dr. Gadve B. N.* and Dr. Manjushree Shriram Patil

Abstract

Trigger finger also known as Stenosing tenosynovitis is a clinical condition characterized by painful locking of the digit on flexion and extension. Commonly seen in the diabetic population and in women, in the fifth to sixth decade of life. It is caused due to inflammation and hypertrophy of the retinacular sheath which progressively restricts the motion of flexor tendons. The diagnosis is straightforward, as most patients complain of clicking or locking of the finger. According to modern the treatment modalities, includs splinting, corticosteroid injection, or surgical release. Although surgical procedures are effective but the complications that arise out of such procedures are equally fatal and deadly. Now a days, it has been observed that such diseases can be cured by Agnikarma without undertaking any surgical procedure. Classically trigger finger can be correlated to Snayugata Vata in “sushrut samhita”. Acharya Susrutha describes the disease manifestations such as stambha [stiffness], kampa [tremor], soola [pain] and akshepa [convulsions]. He has advised Agnikarma as the specific line of management in diseases pertaining to snayu (ligaments and tendons), asthi (bone), sandhi (joints) etc. This is a single case of trigger finger (snayugata vata) managed with agnikarma using in OPD, Department of Salyatantra, CSMSS Ayurved Mahavidyalaya. The procedure was administered weekly once for 4 weeks at intervals of 7 days giving a complete relief from symptoms.

Keywords: Trigger finger, Snayugata Vata, Agnikarma, panchadhatu shalaka.
