I was at the barber last week and one of the customers was on the topic of how he plays guitar a lot and has arthritis in his wrist and thumbs. He was on a diet of OTC stuff asprin Ibuprofen with no help and he heard about using WD40 several years before so now when ever he decides to play he sprays his wrist and thumb joints with WD40. He said it keeps hisjoints in good shape and he only does it about twice a week. Does not seem like it would be the safest thing to do at least long term. Seems to me it would be toxic, I will not try it. I know WD40 can be used for many things, but I have never in my 58 years on this planet ever heard of spraying it on arthritic joints. Anyway anyone else on here ever heard of using WD40 on arthritic joints?

I've never heard of it before, I suppose it may work, probably the toxins are dulling the pain (I would never do it).

I have heard of it before, but have no first hand knowledge if it works or any problems from using it.

Maybe they get high off the fumes and don't give a darn about arthritis pain anymore?
;^)
Honestly sounds nuts to me, but you never know.

Placebo effect only. There's a youtube by BillyPenn 300 guitars. com on using it for such.

Regularly massaging petroleum distillates into the skin? Pass.

Can't stand the smell let alone the feeling on the skin.

The Old Order Mennonites in my area do this all the time. For some of them, the eau-de-WD 40 is a big improvement...must be due to the heavy black wool coats they wear 16/365 ?
