The origin of the term Gamekeeper’s Thumb (the wringing motion required to break the neck of rabbits and game birds), may no longer be a common cause of the overstretching or tearing of the thumb’s ulnar collateral ligament, but the disorder itself is still quite common.
The term Gamekeeper’s Thumb is used when referring to an ulnar collateral injury caused by repetitive stress on the thumb during such activities as using a wrench, twisting electrical cords or wringing out heavy cloths. The term Skier’s Thumb is commonly used when there is an acute, forceful abduction of the thumb as when a skier falls without letting go of the ski pole. The injury may also be the result of falling on an outstretched thumb or catching a ball with an outstretched thumb.

And “pop” goes the trigger thumb. One of the most common causes of pain and dysfunction in the hand is trigger thumb.
With trigger thumb, patients present with a painful thumb that sticks or catches, often audibly, upon flexion or extension. Or, the patient’s thumb may be stuck or locked in the flexed position. Trigger thumb is thus named because once the thumb unlocks (often by passive manipulation), it snaps back much like discharging a trigger on a gun.
