What is the best therapy to treat Dupuytren contracture?

How should I treat my Dupuytrens disease?

“What is the most important product or vitamin I should use to treat the Dupuytren lump on my palm?”  I am asked that question frequently.

The correct response is that there is not any single therapy that is more important than the others; they are ALL important, especially when used together.  Each natural therapy product if taken by itself has limited ability to make a difference with the dense fibrous Dupuytren contracture tissue on the palm of the hand or fingers. However, when they are used together as we advocate at DCI, their combined effort we find is capable of generating a healing response. None when used separately will achieve the clinical results that compare to a broad-based synergistic approach to Dupuytren therapy using Alternative Medicine.

There is simply no way to predict which vitamin or mineral or enzyme therapy will do the most for you, if in fact any can make a difference to the contracted tissue when used alone.    There is no one product that can cause the contracted palmar fascia tissue to be reabsorbed by the body.

Treatment of Dupuytrens like playing baseball – you need all players

It is similar to determining something similar about a baseball team.  You cannot ask “What is the most important position on the team?” and expect a meaningful answer.  Certainly some would answer, “Oh that is easy.  The pitcher is the most important player.”  If that were true, you only have to imagine how much trouble a team would have if there was no short stop or catcher or first baseman, or center fielder on a team, or if you tried to play a game with nine pitchers on the field.  Each player is important in his own way and vital to the ultimate success of the team when they work together.  The same is true with treatment of Dupuytren contracture.

Please read and re-read sections of the DCI website that describe the treatment philosophy and the principle of synergy, found at Dupuytren Contracture Treatment Philosophy.    If you are having any concerns or indecisions about what you are doing while using Alternative Medicine to treat your hand lumps, you owe it to yourself to go over some of these points. Educate yourself well about this terrible problem and come to understand exactly why you are following this course of Alternative Medicine care.

There is a lot of good information for you on the DCI website.   If you haven’t already spent considerable time reading the background and principles that explain why this therapy works for so many people, now is a good time to review what started you thinking in this direction in the first place.  After you understand more about the philosophy that guides this process of eliminating the dense contracted hand tissue, it will be easier to successfully create and follow your own Dupuytren treatment program.

    Hello,I am a 58 year old female recently diagnosed with the nodes of Dupuytren’s contracture. there is no contracture yet. I understand that radiation therapy is a great option for me at this stage (N). What is your opinion of RT for Dupuytren’s contracture? Karen

    Greetings Karen,

    You need to search a bit on the Dupuytren’s Contracture Institute website for more information about radiotherapy. I have written several articles on this important Dupuytren’s Contracture subject. Radiotherapy has helped many people, perhaps much more than direct surgery, but even radiotherapy has its drawbacks. I cannot tell you what to do in regard to your longterm Dupuytren’s Contracture treatment options; that is a decision you will have to make on your own, in concert with your family doctor, when you have enough information.   I can tell you that many people who failed to develop positive results from Dupuytren’s contracture radiotherapy got mild to great improvement from the Alt Med treatment as we describe on this website.
