two finger joints on hands wont bend...

i dont really think this would be a bone disorder but i have nowhere else to post this, two joints(the one below my knuckle on my ring and pinky finger) don't bend on both hands, so when i make a fist my ring and pinky fingers are both sticking out and you can see the nails, does anyone know what this is? i've had it since i was born, i heard some doctor say it was "congenital" something but i dont remember...if you are familiar with it are there any treaments...?

thank you

Re: two finger joints on hands wont bend...

Congenital means you was born with it. It sound like those joints just have a decreased range of motion (ROM). It could be due to the finger bones within that joint abnormally shaped (dysplasia) or the tendons that move the joint are not functioning properly. More information about it is needed. Depending on whether it hurts or not can determine if it can be treated. If it is important to you don't accept abnormal function as OK just because you are born with it. You can go to an Orthopedic or Chiropractic doctor or a physical therapist. Good luck. Mitch
