Dupuytren’s Contracture

What is this disorder and how does acupuncture assist in its treatment?  This disorder affects the hand or hands.  It is a hand anomaly where tissues/scarring/tightening that usually develops over years. The condition distorts a layer of tissue that lies under the skin of your palm.

Knots of tissue form under the skin — eventually creating a thick cord that can pull one or more fingers into a bent position.  Dupuytren’s contracture typically progresses slowly, over years. The condition usually begins as a thickening of the skin on the palm of your hand. As it progresses, the skin on your palm might appear puckered or dimpled. A firm lump of tissue can form on your palm. This lump might be sensitive to the touch but usually isn’t painful.

I have treated this with great success, especially with acupuncture and color therapy.  Call for a free evaluation and exam…512-336-7424.
