Hi Put,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

On the dorsal side of the finger there are various components, including the tendons that function to extend (straighten) the finger. This tendon itself is a collection of strong fibrous connective tissue that connects muscles to bones. Therefore, if the dorsal side of your finger is deeply incised, it can cause the extensor tendon to break (especially the little finger is called the extensor tendon digini minimi). This condition is characterized by your inability to straighten your fingers.

A broken tendon, if left untreated for a long time, can lead to the following conditions:

Malunion, namely the abnormal fusion of finger bones due to their position that is attached to one another and never moved Muscle atrophy, which is a muscle that shrinks due to the fingers that are never moved Damage to other finger components, including nerves, blood vessels, etc. can still be treated with surgery (tendon repair). However, depending on how badly you have suffered at this time, the results of the surgery can cause your fingers to function normally again, or they may have some limitations in certain functions. It is the doctor who examines you in person who knows best.

Therefore, we recommend that you check your complaint directly with an orthopedic surgeon so that the best treatment is done. Right now, avoid forcibly straightening the injured finger, especially massaging it without the basis of proper anatomy and physiology.
