Trigger finger (TF) mechanical ailment results from a stenotic A1 pulley that has lost its gliding surface, producing friction and nodular change in the tendon. This results in pain and tenderness at the site of the A1 pulley which further progresses into catching and then locking of the finger. A definite cure of TF in the current mainstream is the surgical release of the A1 pulley. A 71-year-old male patient with a TF presented with pain, swelling, and locking of the left hand's middle finger. The patient was considered as suffering from Snayugata Vata as an Ayurveda diagnosis and treated with Kshaudra Agnikarma (therapeutic burn with honey) on daily basis at the morning for 30 days and Bandhana (bandages) for 2 months along with Dashmoola Kwatha orally 20 mL empty stomach twice a day and Haritaki Churna 5 g at night with lukewarm water orally for 2 months. The patient was clinically assessed and Green's Severity Scores of TF showed remarkable improvement after the completion of treatment. This single case report demonstrates that the case of TF can be successfully managed with Kshaudra Agnikarma – A minimally invasive nonsurgical therapeutic intervention using Ayurveda principles.
