The treatment of a Dupuytren's contracture depends on the severity and the underlying condition of the affected individual. Stretching with the application of heat and ultrasonographic waves may be helpful in the early stages of Dupuytren contracture. The physical therapist also may recommend you to wear a custom splint or brace to stretch the fingers further. Range of motion (ROM) exercises should be performed several times a day.
If the condition is non-responsive to nonsurgical treatments, that is time where surgical procedure would be done.
