Dupuytrensco Cream has also been shown to help fight the pain and symptoms associated with Trigger Finger. While Dupuytrensco Cream was not designed with Trigger Finger in mind we have seen that many patients have seen amazing relief of the pain and restriction of movement associated with Trigger Finger.
What is Trigger Finger and is it related to Dupuytren’s Contracture?
Trigger finger is not directly considered a connective tissue disorder, however, it can cause causes pain, stiffness, and a sensation of locking or catching when you bend and straighten your finger. This condition is also referred to as “stenosing tenosynovitis.” The ring finger and thumb are most often affected by trigger finger, but it can occur in the other fingers, as well.
The flexor tendons are long cords that attach the muscles of the forearm to the bones of the fingers. When the muscles contract, the flexor tendons allow the fingers to bend. The tendons pass through a sheath allowing it to glide smoothly as the fingers bend and straighten. The sheath has tissue that surrounds it that acts like a pulley which facilitates the movement of the tendons back and forth.
In patients with trigger finger, the pulleys becomes inflamed or thickened, which makes it harder for the flexor tendons to glide through its sheath, making it more difficult to straighten the affected fingers. Similar to patients with Dupuytren’s Contracture, at times the flexor tendon may become inflamed and develop a small nodule. When the finger tries to move back through the sheath there is a sensation of catching or popping. This can be very painful and can keep many patients from straightening the affected fingers. In severe cases patients are forced to manually try and pull and straighten the affected fingers which in turn causes additional and sometimes severe pain.
While Trigger Finger and Dupuytren’s Contracture are different diseases the natural ingredients in Dupuytrensco Cream have been seen to reduce both the inflammation and painful symptoms associated with Trigger Finger. By helping reduce the pain and inflammation of the tendons can move more easily through the tendon sheath allowing patients to more easily close and straighten their fingers.
Similar to Dupuytren’s Contracture treatment options are limited for patients with Trigger FInger. Invasive procedures including surgery for extreme cases, splinting, steroid injections, and painful stretching exercises are often recommended. . Many of these common medical recommendations have been found ineffective and surgical treatments can cause nerve damage and potentially worsen the condition. This is why many patients are looking for non-invasive, natural solutions for the pain and stiffness associated with Trigger Finger.
