You've only got part of it. The story is that you put DMSO or ground up aspirin on the knee, spray it with WD-40 and then rub it in.

WD-40 is not a lubricant. It's a solvent. It's mostly mineral spirits, which removes oils/grease.

I really wish people would pick up on this. They wonder why they have to spray the door hinges 4-6 times a year with this stuff. I hit mine once a year with Ballistol.


Hinges, too!

That might be a good choice but I think a 50/50 mixture of Broadway Joe's 454 and dirt from El Santuario de Chimayo would be hard to beat.

Stranger things has been used. Pain is a thing that will cause people to try crazy stuff. Placebo is my vote.

That summed up my thoughts exactly, but the guy claimed it heled so placebo or whatever, more power to him. I would not try it though. IMO he is slowly poisoning himself. Having arthritis myself I used to pop ibuprofen like tic tacs, finally weaned myself off of them and find that just plain exercise and going on daily walks helps more than anything.

DMSO is a long time product used for such things. Heres what an MD web site says:

DMSO has been used as an industrial solvent since the mid-1800s. From about the mid-20th century, researchers have explored its use as an anti-inflammatory agent.
The FDA has approved DMSO as a prescription medication for treating symptoms of painful bladder syndrome. It's also used under medical supervision to treat several other conditions, including shingles.
DMSO is easily absorbed by the skin. It's sometimes used to increase the body's absorption of other medications.

I've heard of people doing that with MMO, but never WD40.

West Indian people do this. I worked at a hardware store and they would buy gallon cans to send back home. Even had a few customers ask to order 55 GAL drum. Never did though
