    Ok so about 10 years ago (yes ik a long time ago ) my little finger was crushed. They couldn't xray it because it was too small to be xrayed (my finger i mean) so i can't remember what happened after that. Basically it has never been right, i can bend it but it requires a lot of effort and the little tendon things in my arm move more than when i bend my other fingers. I also get aching in my finger and it sometimes stiffens up. I was just wondering if anything could be done about it given that it is such an old injury

    It could be that physiotherapy would be able to help, worth getting it checked out to be sure.

    It sounds like it hasnt healed properly.
    Go to GP and hey can arrange for a scan and then possibly the physio. theres other things they cna do with tendons and this is quite common for people with things like reptitive strain. It might need surgery to put it right if physio doesnt work.
