Will your Dupuytren treatment also help a trigger finger problem?
I have both Dupuytren’s contracture and trigger fingers. Will your treatment cover both problems?
I do not have an answer for you. While the DCI treatment for Dupuytren’s contracture has had a lot of successful application for palm lumps and contracted fingers, I have not had much feedback from people how if affects a trigger finger. I think there are elements of the DCI treatment protocol that might help the swelling and inflammation of the tendon sheaths in the palm of your hand that causes your fingers to periodically catch, called trigger finger.
For the most part a trigger finger problem tends to be more of a nuisance to a person, but Dupuytren contracture is a much larger and more dangerous problem to the health of a hand. I suggest that you get busy doing everything you can to help your body heal your Dupuytren disease, and see if at the same time your trigger fingers improve. I think the most important consideration is to first get the Dupuytren under control and deal with the trigger fingers later – if they are still even a problem. TRH
