Hand Therapy After Xiaflex™ Injection
Dupuytren's contracture causes an abnormal thickening of tissue from excess collagen beneath the skin in the palm of the hand. Over time, this thickened tissue causes fingers to bend toward the palm, decreasing your range of motion and limiting hand function.
You may be a candidate for hand therapy after Xiaflex™ injection if your Dupuytren's contracture has caused a palpable "cord" in the palm of your hand that can be felt, and your physician has decided to treat your condition with Xiaflex™ injection, a nonsurgical, alternative treatment option.
Benefits of Hand Therapy After Xiaflex™ Injection
- Improved finger extension
- Management of post-injection pain and edema (swelling)
- Custom splint fabrication to maximize finger extension
- Individualized HEP
