What is dupuytren?

Dupuytren’s disease consists of a thickening accompanied by a retraction of the fascia and connective tissue of the palm of the hand, which can become a thick and tense band with or without the possible presence of lumps or nodules.

The most characteristic symptoms of Dupuytren’s disease are loss of mobility and functionality of fingers and hands, but without the appearance of pain.

How is it treated?

Dupuytren’s is a pathology whose prognosis for recovery will vary greatly depending on when treatment is started.

First of all, a global, exhaustive and complete assessment of the musculoskeletal and nervous system is carried out, and depending on the results, we evaluate which type of treatment is the most appropriate for the patient. In a cross-cutting manner, the rehabilitation team will perform an intervention through therapeutic exercise.
