Flexor Digitorum takes its origin from its common flexor tendon on the anterior aspect of the medial epicondyle. In general, the wrist flexors all radiate pain maps into the fingers. The pain map for the Flexor Digitorum Superficialis and Profundus is commonly felt in the middle digit (finger). Differentially, because the C7 dermatome also radiates into the middle finger, cervical pathology (discopathy) should be ruled out.
When treating Trigger Points in the Wrist Flexors remember to check the triceps for trigger points, especially if the situation is chronic. Another tip is to check for trigger points in the extensor muscles too (this is because they are reciprocally wired antagonists).
