Example text

For this reason, it is indispensable to know the anatomy of the lymphatic ways. Health professionals exert an extremely important function for lymphatic patients. However, any solitary action on part of the professional should be considered illegitimate, because the doctor is absolutely responsible for all and each of the therapeutic steps performed. Other secondary effects caused by the drainage are: a)an action on the vegetative nervous system producing parasympathetic stimulation leading to relaxation; b)a sedative action of algic reflexes; c)an action on ganglia with immunological effects.

Casley Smith reinforces the view that a poorly performed drainage is worse than doing nothing. Several techniques called lymphatic drainage, have been inadequately employed, becoming liable to inflict injury to patients. It is important for the professional worker to heed to this fact and to dominate the technique in order not to provoke lesions. Manual lymphatic drainage consists of gliding movements over the trajectory of lymphatic vessels, and compression at the region of the lymph nodes. It is a fully systematized technique whose movements should have a correct sequence with a well-defined direction and strategy.

It is a fully systematized technique whose movements should have a correct sequence with a well-defined direction and strategy. It is a universal consensus that the lymphatic system should be centrally unblocked, and in the last instance, the affected limb.

Following distally, and only afterwards should the affected limb be worked upon. This system creates empty reservoirs through which peripheral lymphatics may drain.
