Laser Therapy has been found to be highly effective in the treatment of Dupuytren’s Contracture. Fascial thickening of the palms and the fibrous bands extending to the digits have been markedly reduced in thickness and extent following a series of treatments utilizing Laser Therapy. Moreover, they have resulted in diminished pain, improved mobility and more normal configuration of the soft tissues involved.
In order to treat this pathology effectively, appropriately designed equipment must be utilized. The earlier the condition is treated (small nodules and minimal fibrous bands), the more effective the therapy will prove to be. Advanced situations do not preclude the application of Laser Therapy, however the course of treatment may be prolonged.
