Q.

Crooked fingers

My 9 month old baby' s ring and middle finger on both hands are clutched in, and she can only open them to about 90 degrees. We took her to a fisio who said that we must massage her, and once she starts crawling it will then start to straighten out. Thing is shes been crawling for amonth and we massage her about every 6 hours - no improvement. Are we to hasty, or should we start considering surgery?
