DMSO for PF?

Posted by William O'D on 10/26/00 at 18:29 (031401)

I am new to all of this. Is there any place for DMSO in the treatment of PF? If so, in what manner/method would I use it?
Thank you,
Bill

DMSO does have antiinflamatory properties and is used for musculoskelital problems, but it is not approved by the FDA for this use. I also understand in is very hard to insure the purity of this drug which can lead to the unwanted absorption of products or chemicals you don't want. Dr. B.
