The control of muscle spasm and arthritic pain through sympathetic block at the nasal ganglion and the use of the adenylic nucleotide

Contributions to the physiology of muscle metabolism. Part II
  • Simon L. Ruskin


1. Muscle spasm and arthritic pain can be controlled directly through influencing the sympathetic at the spheno-palatine ganglion.

2. Increasing the supply of the energy rich phosphate bond in the form of the Ferrous adenylate (Ironyl) is an aid in the correction of the delta state of the myofibril.

3. The dramatic nature of the results is its greatest handicap.
