Dissipate Dupuytren’s Contracture’s Symptoms
A Dupuytren’s contracture is a localized formation of scar tissue around the tendons that flex the fingers beneath the skin of the palm of the hand. The scarring accumulates in a tissue (palmar fascia) that normally covers the tendons that pull the fingers to grip. Definition: Mayo Clinic
Several remedies were tried and seemed to fail. On June 2020 the bumps began to reduce.
By Spring 2020 severe ligamental pain began creeping from my palm up through my ring finger’s main joint. I noted there was no pain under my narrow wedding ring. But sharp pain where there was no ring to rub. I understood rubbing / massaging may be helpful. My impatient methods of rubbing the area where there was no ring were not successful.
Sarah suggested gentle longer term rubbing / massaging may help. To gently rub on a long term basis, I began the following:
Wearing a wide, close fitting ring that covered the painful area. Within days the sharp pain dissipated.
Wearing a ‘palm pouch’ at night, has reduced / softened hard bumps on my palm.
Taking Serrapeptase Enzyme to help dissipate scar tissue.
24 x 7
Wide metal ring. Initially I wore my father’s ring, but I gave it to my soon-to-be-married nephew. Now I am wearing a wide piece of copper pipe, burnished smooth by my husband.
Three times daily
250,000 U Serrapeptase (before meals) drinking 8 oz of water with each dose.
Palm Pouch containing marbles
I began with one marble slipped behind a slightly stretchy heavy fabric. When I saw the bumps on my palm reduce, I added a cotton pouch on the inside, increased the marble count in the enclosed pouch that now gently rubs the full width of my palm. At night, it I am aware of a glove with something on my palm, nothing more.
Although this may be unrelated, I also take for my older joints & muscles
375 mg Glucosamine + 100mg Chondroitin Complex
100mg Fish Oil
240 mg Magnesium Bisglycinate
The bumps on my hand are no longer progressing. The bumps have reduced. I do not have general pain in my hand nor pin point searing ligamental pain. Hope this is as helpful for others as it has been for me.
