Many patients with chronic pain complaints have a delayed healing response due to the inability of the body to clean itself up. In order to have proper healing, oxygen and nutrients need to be delivered via the arteries to the irritated tissues and the waste products and inflammatory chemicals need to be returned to the heart via the venous and lymphatic systems.
During our recent session – Incorporating Chapman’s Neurolymphatic Reflexes Into A Manual Therapy Practice – we discussed how the removal of these reflexes, if present, can speed up healing by modifying inappropriate lymphatic, autonomic, and hormonal responses.
This class, held at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, Greenspring Campus, on January 25-26, 2020 reviewed Chapman’s Neurolymphatic Reflexes from several perspectives including their historical development and evolution of their usage in the past century, how to use these reflexes during the evaluation process to determine with more specificity where the problems lie, and the various models of how Chapman’s Neurolymphatic Reflexes can be used in treatment.
During the extensive lab portion of the class, we emphasized how to find where Chapman’s Neurolymphatic Reflexes are located, what they feel like, and how to apply treatment of them in a proper treatment sequence.
We look forward to our next class, Manual Therapy Treatment of Common Thoracic Cage Dysfunctions, that will held on Saturday May 2nd.
