Dupuytren’s Contracture Therapy
May 14, 2015
Dupuytren’s Contracture is a slow developing hand deformity that affects the layer of tissue under the skin of the palm. This can be a debilitating condition because it progresses in a manner that cannot be corrected. The tissues in the palm will eventually form into a thick cord that will pull one or two of the fingers into a permanently bent position. If you have ever been without the use of one or two of your fingers for even a short amount of time due to injury, then you understand the complications that the permanent loss of use can have on everyday activities. Sovereign Rehabilitation is the trusted provider in and around Atlanta, Georgia for comprehensive physical and rehabilitation therapy. We have certified hand therapists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists that specialize in helping patients with Dupuytren’s Contracture find relief from their symptoms and learn coping mechanisms to perform daily activities.
There is no known cause of Dupuytren’s Contracture, but it is known to affect men at a much higher rate than women.
