Since Dupuytren’s contracture is not a very common disease, not much is known about it. Some sufferers do not even know that they have the disease because it never gets diagnosed.
The condition affects one or several fingers causing them to bend in a flexed position that can prevent people from performing day to day activities. The condition can take years to fully develop in most cases. It starts as small and hard nodules under the palm that gradually worsens.
Assuming it is fatigue or regular hand pain, some users opt for traditional options such as OTC pain relievers and massages without even realizing it.
Is it wise to opt for massages during the condition and does it help Dupuytren’s contracture? Let’s find out:
If you search the web, you will find different answers. Some people believe that massaging the hand can help the condition and some believe that it has no impact on the situation.
The truth is that science is yet to find an answer to this question as research is continued. Hence, we can say that Massages do not help the condition.
We spoke to a bunch of people who have the disease and found that some individuals can find relief in physical therapy.
It is basic psychology. We know that massages can be relaxing. When you undergo a hand massage for Dupuytren’s contracture, you end up feeling better even if it has no real impact on your condition.
There is currently a massage specifically designed for Dupuytren’s contracture. You may feel slightly better in the beginning, but if the condition has already worsened then massages will not provide you any benefits.
Also, remember that a hand massage cannot prevent the condition from worsening even if you feel better during or after a massage.
If a massage makes you feel better then there is no harm in opting for it. However, remember that it will not truly help the condition and may only be able to make you feel relaxed.
You must opt for other options if you are serious about slowing down the progression of the disease and prevent it from worsening.
First of all, find out what’s causing it to worsen. If you are into bad habits like smoking and drinking then try to curb them as they are known to aggravate the condition. Next, give your hand some rest and avoid exerting too much pressure on it. These steps can prevent the situation from worsening but they cannot reverse the symptoms.
