I have recently under gone NA (needle aponeurotomy) procedure to remedy DC on both hands. Very succesful! So pleased that I did not have the surgery recommended by medical experts.
I have Dupuytrens in both hands, and was told by my doctor that there is no cure, and that it would get worse and only an operation would cure it. I went on a paleolithic diet, and my Dupuytrens subsided remarkably. When I break the rules, it grows again, but subsides when I go back to the correct eating. Also, massaging cold pressed Apricot oil, or any vitamin e oil into the Dupuytrens helps.

I had shooting pain from dupuytren's contracture. These supplements slowed the progression and greatly reduced the stabbing pain that would wake me. My thumb had stopped functioning and that function returned.

- 30 MG UC-II (10mg undernatured) turns off the pain of arthritis. Take on an empty stomach 1st thing in the morning.

Finally, limiting sugar/Carbs may help.
I started getting a lump on my hand just below my middle finger and discovered I had Dupuytren's Contracture. I read Vitamin E could help with this problem. I started to take 800 IU of Vitamin E. By the third day the lump was was just about gone. I couldn't believe how fast it worked. Vit E is the only change I made.
Hi, my mother had the surgery for Dupuytren's Contracture and it didn't cure it but helped. It was however very painful with a long recovery time. I just today saw a cure though called Wan Hua Oil (a bit late for her then, but maybe for others).
A therapist called Dr. Harvey Kaltsas describes how to use it on page 8 of his piece on natural oils of chinese medicine.
It apparently works in a few weeks when used nightly. It removes hardened masses too and he says "works to moisten the tendon sheathes so they move smoothly and allows the fingers to open and close without catching".
Anyway you can read more if you google the oil. Hope that helps!
Curing Dupuytren's Contracture by carrying a heavy thing. Hi, my friend told me that she cured her Dupuytren's Contracture by carrying a heavy thing by her finger, that is what an old woman told her to do. She said when she go to the grocery, she carry her shopping bags by her finger. After many times, the finger return back to its normal position.
I started to get dupuytrens in both hand several years ago when I had some severe health problems. The alternative health practioner suggested I had a deficiency of zinc. When I started taking zinc supplements (25mg per day) the nodules and the contractures started to significantly subside. (I can open my hands fully.... But sometimes still have some weakness. ) I occassonally get flareups where the hands get more painful and I start to get a nodule in each foot. (Often when I've forgotten my zinc. ) But it has always subsided again.
