What does DMSO really do?
My daughter is quite an athlete. At the tender age of 13, she plays sports as her life depended on it. Unfortunately, she is a mere 90 lb. small frame young lady that plays with the heart of a lion. A few weeks ago, she hyperextended her knee in a soccer game.
We did the usual, conventional healing techniques, ice, wrapping, and anti-inflammation meds. With some, but very limited, pain relief.
The next week as we prepared for the upcoming game, she asked me what to do to alleviate the pain she was feeling.
