Try Handmaster Plus as part of your protocol with any patient as a rehabilitative exercise treatment for Dupuytren’s contracture that has not progressed chronicallly. Handmaster Plus is one continuous hand exercise that patients will understand and comply with. Simply ‘open and close the hand alternately’ until a comfortable fatigue is experienced. Each session should last between 30 seconds – 2 minutes. Repeat 1-3 times per day, depending upon your advice (i.e. the advice of a health care professional is essential in any treatment protocol requiring exercise).
Boxing and MMA (mixed martial arts) are two disciplines that cannot afford to leave finger, thumb, hand & wrist training out. Nagging, distracting old injuries are commonplace during training between fights. Advanced healing is essential so that old injuries do not show their face at the worst time… at a competition or in final preparation for a competition. That is why full ROM finger, thumb, hand and wrist training is essential for strength, balance, blood flow and maximum healing throughout the year for a boxer or MMA athlete. Grip-only, small ROM training is just not enough. Why stimulate such a small number of muscles through such a small ROM? Traditionally, ‘grip-only’ hand exercise and strength training has been accepted… but now we know more. The gig is up. Small ROM means muscle weakness and imbalance; and poor blood flow needed for continual repair of bones, ligament and soft tissue.
My father-in-law is a auto-body mechanic, had Dupuytren’s Contracture when I met him (though mild), he has done very well… and now loves Handmaster Plus. Treatment of Dupuytren’s Contracture can stop, reverse, or slow the progression, a key advantage my father in law has witnessed. Many other cases exist with similar results. Blood flow, blood flow, blood flow. Full ROM exercise & training is VITAL. Standard hand exercise to this point in time, has been poor… using grip-only devices.
