About Dupuytren's Contracture Treatment

The aim of the treatment is to improve the person’s ability to extend the affected fingers. Most of the people with Dupuytren’s contracture have mild symptoms and an individual is able to perform day to day work. People with Dupuytren’s contracture usually want to get treatment depending on the level of discomfort affecting their daily routine life.

The given treatments are –

  • Needling - A needle is inserted through the skin. This breaks the cord that is contracting a finger. The procedure does not require any incision and can be done in multiple fingers at a same time. However, in some places of fingers needling may damage a nerve or tendon. 
  • Enzyme injection- It softens and weakens the cord. This allows the doctor to break the cord and straighten the fingers. 
  • Surgery - The tissue in the palm is surgically removed. Surgical measure is long lasting when compared to needling and enzyme injections. One may need physical therapy after the surgery. In some case there may be total removal of the tissues affecting Dupuytren’s contracture. This surgery has a long recovery time and the patient may need physical therapy.
  • Radiation therapy - The therapy works in early stage of the disease. It can make the tissues soft and prevent contractions.
  • Other remedies - The person with Dupuytren’s contracture must avoid tight grip and use heavy padded gloves.
