Correct yourself dupuytren contracture

On the age of 32 I got the first sign of dupuytren contracture on my ring finger in the hand palm. Today after 12 years the finger is about 5 degrees out of sync.
Well I tripped today on the wooden stairs in my house today. Falling forward I stretched my arm out and my fingers hit the stair edge. Result was an over extension of fingers in respect to the hand palm. Moreover I felt two clicks in my hand palm. The clicks came with an intense acute pain. I looked at my hand I noticed my finger was back straight and I spotted two tiny spaces on the dupuytren contracture that were more dark than the rest of the skin. This is were I broke twice myself the palmar fascia. After 10s no pain anymore and looks like I cured myself for the time being.

So just wondering if this can be done easily by myself then I assume other were first and this is a way to cure one self?


Cheers :)

Re: Correct yourself dupuytren contracture

Hi Tom,you might consider wearing a night splint. Luck and youth were on your side that you did not break or dislocate anything.

Re: Correct yourself dupuytren contracture

So 2y later the dupuytren contracture is still growing. The cut in the dupuytren contracture I made falling corrected my finger to normal and delayed the dupuytren contracture. Today my finger has again a very slight 1 or 2 degree error. This is my right hand.
On my left hand I noticed last week I have the very early stage of dupuytren contracture also in the palm on the ring finger line. The dupuytren contracture feels like a ball 3mm wide.
On the same left hand since 5y a dupuytren contracture has been growing on my pink and I believe that will need surgery within a year.
I have no plans falling of the stairs currently

Some days, I'd throw myself down some stairs if I though it would make my hands quit hurting! :)

Re: Correct yourself dupuytren contracture

Although the contraction grew, after 3y my ring finger is still straight. So the unintentional fall was a good thing.
The contraction is very slightly curving my hand, bringer my pink closer to my thumb, but keeps my fingers straight.
I do sleep with a self made glove with splint.
I guess I can wait another three years before it needs action as I can still put my hand flat on the table.
