1

What are the indications for lymphatic treatment?

SD

Sprains / strains

Edema / Tissue congestion

Lymphatic / Venous stasis

Pregnancy

Infection

Inflammation

2

What are the absolute contraindications of lymphatic treatment?

Anuria

Necrotizing fasciitis

3

What are the relative contraindications for lymphatic treatment?

Malignancy

Fracture / Dislocation

Some infections

Some circulatory disorders

Patients on anticoagulants

4

What are the three "fluid pumps" we evaluate in lymphatics?

Thoracic inlet

Thoracic diaphragm

Pelvic diaphragm

5

What are the 5 "principles" of lymphatic diagnosis?

Evaluate indications/risk

Evaluate central myofascial pathways (Zink's restrictors)

Evaluate fluid pumps

Evaluate for spinal involvement

Evaluate peripheral / regional pathways (lymph nodes)

6

What are the six regions for palpation of lymph nodes?

Supraclavicular

Epigastric

Posterior axillary

Inguinal

Popliteal

Achilles

7

What are the four "principles of lymphatic treatment?"

1. Open pathways to remove restriction to flow

2. Maximize diaphragmatic functions

3. Increase pressure differentials (transmit motion)

4. Mobilize targeted tissue fluids
