What can a person do if his or her back hurts and dozens of medications and injections don’t help? In this case RUDN University specialists apply an easy and effective method of treatment of painful periods - intraosseous blockades. This Russian method of pain treatment was developed and implemented by RUDN University professor Evgeny Sokov. His son Peter, neurologist, follows in his father’s footsteps.
“Intraosseous blockades – is a fairly new method of treatment, previously it wasn’t common practice to inject the anesthetic directly into the bone to treat pain. The application of this method is not restricted only to the cure of painful conditions. Lately we started practicing intraosseous blockades for the treatment of different disorders of muscle tone. Now we supervise several patients with Parkinson’s disease and lumbar pain. Thanks to the intraosseous blockades not only painful condition of these patients was cured, but also parkinsonian tremor and stiffness. Definitely, this method requires further thorough examination”, Peter Sokov says.
