Treatment options for Dupuytren’s
There are many treatment options for Dupuytren’s contracture – surgical, drug and non-drug. However, common sense says, “use conservative treatment options for Dupuytren’s contracture first.” Currently, DCI uses 15 different safe natural therapies in our various plans, and still the list grows.
DCI is not anti-hand surgery. It’s just that too many people use surgery first. Surgery should be the last thing a person does for Dupuytren’s contracture, only because DC hand surgery of any type stirs up even more collagen production.
First be conservative, take chances later
The DCI approach helps people from around the world use these conservative therapies, with impressive feedback. DCI receives 8-10 reports telling of moderate to marked improvement of the palm nodules and finger cords when people use our large plan, for each report of failure. In over 20 years of doing this work, we have never received a report of a side effect, complication, or the return of Dupuytren’s contracture after it was treated with our methods.
If you use a DCI plan as we suggest, and it does not help you, as sometimes happens, you can always talk to a hand surgeon at a later time.

Dupuytren’s contracture means too much collagen
A DC hand makes too much collagen and fibrin in response to a cut or injury. Every hand surgery produces excessive fibrous tissue. At best, hand surgery looks like a simple solution: Cut the lump out of the hand or tear it up with the tip of a needle, and you can go your merry way.
People often have no idea how much problem they can stir up by directly cutting the DC fibrous mass and the surrounding areas. This is why people with DC can have 2-4-6 hand surgeries before quitting. It is not that the DC goes away. Actually, even after the palm nodule is removed, you still have DC so you will sooner or later just make another palm lump – bigger than the first one. After so many surgeries most people simply refuse more surgery, no matter how bad their hand becomes.
Unfortunately, additional scarring causes new and greater hand problems. As the new fibrous tissue develops, more symptoms also develop. Greater pain, finger contraction, numbness, coldness etc. appear. A slowly worsening cycle can even end in amputation.
DCI research – Dupuytren’s treatment options
DCI conducted five research projects between 2004-2021 to improve the natural treatment options for Dupuytren’s. As a result, DCI found better ways to reduce palm nodule and finger cords. It all came down to the discovery and use of what we call the SSDD. This stands for “size, shape, density and degree of adhesion” of the palm nodule of Dupuytren’s contracture.
To explain, DCI’s first research effort looked into tissue response and activity after increasing the standard dosages of the natural Dupuytren’s treatment options. We found that after increasing several therapy dosages, not just one, we often observed surprisingly rapid and dramatic changes in the SSDD. These reductions of the fibrous tissue were always very small, almost tiny, but clear evidence that something beneficial happened. It required that we keep good records, based on very detailed measurements, to measure these small changes. Time and again, we saw that low dosages did not cause any SSDD change. Only higher dosages improved the SSDD. These tiny measurable changes happened before any improvement of palm flattening or finger straightening could occur.
Everyone wants their bent finger to straighten. However, to get to that point, many tiny changes must happen. We learned it is possible to measure and evaluate these small changes. As small as these changes are they can begin just a week or two after a therapy increase.
These small changes in the SSDD guide how we use the treatment options for Dupuytren’s self-care. With this system we can customize an accurate treatment plan for each individual based on early response to dosage changes.
Vitamins and minerals are not drugs
Using the SSDD as a guide, DCI also confirmed that treating Dupuytren’s contracture with just one vitamin or nutrient (even important ones like vitamin E, L-arginine or PABA), has little to no effect on DC. Nutrients occur in nature combined with other nutrients, as in our food – never alone. You cannot find a hunk of vitamin E in nature, or a sliver of L-arginine. All vitamins, minerals and enzymes work in combination with hundreds of others. And our bodies can only use them in combination. Only the medical professional tells patients to treat Dupuytren’s contracture with vitamin E by itself. It is a waste of time, money and opportunity. That is not how these things work.
DCI treatment options for Dupuytren’s
The DCI method for using Dupuytren’s treatment options is aggressive because DC ruins lives, and because low dosages are needed to support the kind of metabolic activity necessary for healing. DCI is very serious about helping you do a better job of healing your Dupuytren’s contracture. Here is an overview:
- A palm lump can appear for a few months, then eventually disappear; it self-heals. Basically, we do everything to put you in that group. We want you to be a better self-healer. DCI provides a variety of different internal and external therapies to assist a better healing response.
- The DCI method is similar to the way every physician in the world treats diabetes. Treatment starts with a standard dose of insulin. If that standard dose does not improve the blood sugar, the doctor increases the dosage until it responds to treatment. The DCI approach is similar. DCI uses a wide group of natural therapies to reduce the SSDD. Slowly and gradually, increase the dosages until the fibrous tissue becomes smaller, softer or moves easier on the palm.
- DCI uses only high-quality research grade vitamins, minerals, enzymes etc. You do not have to look for these things. This work is too difficult and too important to trust bargains.
- Expect small, measurable improvement in the SSDD 10-14 days after making a change in your therapy plan. If no changes occur, you will know how to handle that situation.
- DCI provides detailed information to guide you from beginning to the end of care. No one guesses what to do.
Self-care with natural treatment options for Dupuytren’s makes sense. People like using simple, natural therapy options to avoid surgery. But have no idea how to do it. So, they never start.
DCI has a well-designed program. We will guide you from start to finish.
Actually, once you see how DCI treats DC, it is really a simple and straightforward idea. Plus, it makes sense. DCI spent two decades developing this safe and logical method. We have great notes that explain how use our system correctly. For this reason, we seldom have anyone asking us any questions.
DCI customers like the DCI treatment approach. They feel confident because they know what they are doing. Watching the SSDD change puts them in control of a bad situation.
