Relief for Dupuytren's Contracture

This is a deformity of the hand that typically develops slowly over years as knots of tissue form underneath the skin of the palm and pull one or more fingers into unnatural, bent positions that cannot be straightened. In some cases, treatment is unnecessary because there is no pain and the condition does not limit your ability to perform daily tasks.  In other cases, you may need treatment.

Treatments for Dupuytren's contracture vary from needling to break up or puncture the hard tissue that is causing the bent finger(s) to enzyme injections to soften or weaken the cords in the palm. In severe cases, surgery may be required to remove the hard tissue completely for a longer-lasting result. Most patients who undergo surgery also need physical therapy afterward to restore strength and function.
