How might the joint contractures associated with juvenile hyaline fibromatosis be treated?

It has been suggested that physical therapy may help to treat joint contractures in juvenile hyaline fibromatosis; this therapy should be done with an awareness of the pain tolerance of each affected individual.  Splinting may help reduce pain associated with contractures by stabilizing the joint.[1]
