Yes, it must be wonderful to have Vikings on the family tree.
I suggest you go to the DCI website and get busy by reading a few things to educate yourself about self-care of Dupuytren contracture (which often also has a beneficial effect on the Ledderhose disease of the feet). You might read Start Dupuytren treatment to better understand the process and a few of the links you encounter along the way.
