Digit : Digit is the word doctors use to mean a finger or a toe. Each finger has several segments, each named a phalanx. The word for more than one phalanx is "phalanges". The joints between each phalanx is called an interphalangeal joint, and the fingers have two interphalangeal joints. The interphalangeal joint that is closer to the fingertip is called the distal interphalageal joint, or dip. The other interphalageal joint is called the proximal interphalageal joint, or pip. At the base of each finger are the knuckles, which doctors call the metacarpal phalangeal joints, or mcp. It is uncommon for a neurological problem to affect just one dip joint. More commonly, after an injury, this joint becomes fused or a tendon develops a contracture. Examination by a neurologist, hand surgeon, or occupational therapist (the kind of therapists that specialist in the hands) can determine the source of the problem. Once the source is identified, treatments, which might include surgery, other interventions, or medications can be chosen. ...Read more
