If you suffer from Dupuytren’s disease, you can probably bend your fingers normally but cannot straighten them completely. Using the Dupuytren’s Wand and following up with the wearing of Dupuytren’s tape can provide a comfortable and consistent stretch to the finger and helps gently restore your range of motion. This home treatment for Dupuytren’s Contracture is easy, cost effective and quickly allows for increased use of your hand. You can use the Dupuytren’s Wand at home and the tape is easy to put on yourself. It’s a simple solution that can often reduce tightness, tenderness and even delay the need for surgery. Even better, the results are fast and it costs less than the average doctor’s visit.
Dupuytren’s Contracture is a medical disorder in which the connective tissue beneath the palm stiffens and eventually turns into a scar-like lump over time. Although it isn’t always painful, it may limit the movement of your fingers or hands. A hard lump in the palm, generally towards the base of the ring or little finger, is the initial symptom of Dupuytren’s Contracture. The thickening of the skin and underlying nodule usually develops very slowly. Dupuytren’s contracture can be treated at home using the
Dupuytren’s Wand and Tape.
The most common symptom of this disease is one or more tiny lumps or nodules in the palm of your hand. The nodules may be sensitive at first, but this tenderness normally fades with time. In addition, there may be “pitting” or deep indentation of the skin near the nodules in some situations.
Hard tissue cords under the skin are another symptom of Dupuytren’s contracture. This is because the nodules may thicken and contract, forming tight and tough tissue cords beneath the skin. These cords might make it difficult for the fingers and thumb to straighten or expand apart period
As the tissue beneath the skin tightens, one or more of your fingers may be drawn into your palm, preventing them from extending apart. Although the ring and little fingers are the most commonly affected, any or all of the fingers, including the thumb, may be affected.
Dupuytren’s Tape is designed for use after using the Dupuytrens Wand. Dupuytren’s Tape encourages the finger to straighten while allowing the finger to bend. By taking a new and effective approach to increasing localized blood flow, reducing swelling of the edema, and gently massaging fibrous tissue formations to soften nodules, cords, and scar tissue, the Dupuytren’s Wand prepares the hand for Dupuytren’s Tape. Dupuytren’s Tape can be worn all day and all night to provide a gentle, consistent stretch while allowing for a better range of motion when opening the hand. This non-surgical treatment for Dupuytren’s Contracture helps delay or even eliminates the need for surgery.
