DMSO and Cortisone


Page 71 of the classic "Complete Guide to Powerlifting" recommends DMSO and cortisone for knee injuries.

Is this still advisable?


You can still pick up DMSO at a tractor supply or horse store. Now cortisone is for the birds, it never did anything for me except mask the pain for a few days.


Speaking only from experience on show cows, it will pull swelling and inflammation out of an old arthritic hock like nothing else. Between that and banamine, you can make some old arthritic swingbag glide around the ring like a cloud.

Speaking only from experience with cows though...
