When given a shot of cortisone for a trigger finger hand with multiple fingers affected, is the shot given to each individual joint or just one for the entire hand.

Hello eishiba! There is no rule as to how many cortisone shots can be given. Often physicians do not want to give more than three, but there is not really a specific limit to the number of shots. However, there are some practical limitations. If a cortisone injection wears off quickly or does not help the problem, then repeating it may not be worthwhile. Usually a single cortisone injection will resolve, at least temporarily, the trigger finger. The chance of the cortisone injection providing a lasting solution for a trigger finger is about 50%. If the problem does not resolve, a surgery to release the tendon may be necessary. I hope this will help you.
