Since Dupuytren's contracture, in most cases, is not a very serious disease, it often gets neglected by patients who end up indulging in habits that end up worsening the condition. By the time they try to find a solution, it is already too late.
To help you control the disease and make sure you can fight it without any trouble, here are four habits that are bad for Dupuytren's contracture.
Let’s get started:
We talked about the importance of washing your hands and highlighted the steps to properly wash your hands in one of our previous articles. Handwashing is important, especially during the era of Covid-19.
Poor handwashing techniques do not only increase the risk of coronavirus but can also result in more damage to the condition of your hands.
Some people end up putting too much pressure on their hands when washing. Even if it does not result in pain and discomfort, it can be bad for your hands to bear excessive force.
Smoking and drinking are directly linked to the disease despite it not being believed to be the leading cause of the condition. Since Dupuytren's contracture is believed to be hereditary, staying away from smoking or drinking will not eradicate the risk of getting the disease. Still, it may help keep your overall health in check and prevent the condition from worsening.
According to reports, people who take part in jobs that require excessive use of their hands are more likely to report severe cases of the disease. This is because putting too much pressure on their hands can cause the condition to worsen quickly.
This is why it is suggested to give your hands some rest if you are a high-risk candidate or already have a mild case of Dupuytren's contracture.
Many people never try to treat the problem since it does not have a proven treatment method or cure. If you search the internet, you will encounter options such as hand surgery for Dupuytren's contracture.
While it may work, it should never be your first option. We recommend trying our non-invasive cream, which uses a combination of nature’s most effective scar treatments and anti-inflammatory agents to help fight against the progression of Dupuytren's disease.
