Restricted fascia may be a cause or a contributing factor to Dupuytren’s Contracture.
I see the tight fascia temporarily respond to EnPuls shock wave therapy or acoustic pulse wave stimulation, but it can require continuous stimulation for several treatments. Over time and repetition of using the EnPuls or PiezoWave pulse therapy and fascial stretching, the tissue does loosen up.
It is well known that altered spindle cell feedback to the brain results in altered stimulation to the muscles and tendons, resulting in altered function which is what we see and feel in Dupuytren’s Contracture. “If I can help one person put there own hand back in there pocket I am thrilled”
Surgeons see Dupuytren’s Contracture as a local problem in the hand and use surgery to try to fix it. I understand their rationale for local treatment but I also treat the whole fascial system up the forearm, arm and neck and sometimes even the jaw area. This type of fascial chain treatment of the mechanoreceptors may literally loosen the hand and not require surgery or repeated surgery.
Local restoration of spindle cell nerves can prevent recidivism and allow long-lasting, normal function for mechanoreceptors along a fascial kinetic chain.
