- Meert, Guido F.
- Churchill Livingstone - Elsevier Health Sciences
The role played by the venolymphatic system, in osteopathy and elsewhere, is a central one. "Venolymphatic Drainage Therapy: an Osteopathic and Manual Therapy Approach" offers accessible and clinically relevant coverage of the subject - encompassing the thorax, abdomen, pelvis and limbs - which includes principles of examination and the effective treatment of underlying disorders. Prepared in an easy-to-follow, practical format, the first part of the volume explores the anatomy, physiology, embryology and biomechanics of the venolymphatic system. The volume then presents a variety of effective treatment options which range from the treatment of functional disorders of the diaphragm, the intraosseous fluid system, the spleen, liver and gallbladder, kidneys and ureters, to the management of problems connected with the abdominal mesenteries and abdominal organs. Richly illustrated with an abundance of artworks and photographs throughout, this volume will be ideal for osteopaths, chiropractors, physical therapists, physiotherapists and massage therapists worldwide.
