Brief Answer:
To heal Dupuytrens contracture, these 3 things.

Detailed Answer:

There are 3 treatments for Dupuytrens contracture. Physiotherapy, medications and surgery. If you were to habitually stretch out your fingers to the maximum, this can lead to an amelioration or passing away of the contracted fascia beneath the skin of the hand. Medically speaking, you might need a corticosteroid at that
part, where the nodules grow uncomfortable. Surgical resection of the fascia can be made.
