LIVING WITH DUPUYTREN'S CONTRACTURE OVER TIME

Early on, it may not seem like your condition is having much of an impact. But as your Dupuytren's contracture progresses, it may affect your ability to perform certain tasks.

For example, people with Dupuytren’s contracture may have difficulty doing things they love, such as playing the piano, gardening, or practicing yoga.

Many people find that even simple tasks may become difficult to perform. Tasks like typing on a keyboard, using tools, wearing gloves, opening jars, or even just shaking hands.

The condition can affect one or multiple fingers in your hand:
Pinky and Ring Fingers

Most commonly impacts the ring and pinky fingers

Less commonly affects the thumb, middle finger, and index finger

Both Hands

NODULE OR LUMP IN PALM

Before the contracture, you may see a nodule or lump in your palm. You may also notice pitting or dimpling.

MILD CONTRACTURE

A “rope-like” cord may extend from your palm to your fingers. Over time, it can cause your fingers to bend or curl toward your palm.

The cord may tighten and pull your finger downward, decreasing your range of motion.

As it worsens, your everyday activities may be affected. In certain situations, it may become harder to treat.
