A specialist may decide that Xiaflex is a good treatment for your Dupuytren’s contracture. It is an injection into the joints of your fingers and can help break down the thickened tissue that causes the cords of tissue making your fingers bend.
After the injection, you will wait a few days and come back to have your finger(s) straightened. You will wear a splint and do finger exercises that your doctor or hand therapist tell you to do. After the injection, you may have some temporary restrictions on how much you can use your hand.
