People with Dupuytren's disease have trouble stretching their fingers. This is due to a connective tissue of the tendon plate in the hand. This white aponeurosis is located in the middle of the hand and because of this disease slowly contracts the flexor tendons of the fingers. Conservative treatment of Dupuytren works best through a combination of intensive physical therapy and the use of a finger splint . If it is not possible to treat this disease conservatively, there is still the option to opt for surgical treatment. A finger splint can be used both pre- and postoperatively! Inform a specialist about the possibilities.
