What are the indications for Doming the Diaphragm?
Lymphatic congestion distal to the diaphragm and/or respiration that does not (myofascially) extend fully to the pubic symphysis.
What are the countraindications for Doming the Diaphragm?
This procedure should not be used if the patient has drainage tubes, intravenous lines, thoracic or abdominal incision, or moderate to severe hiatal hernia or GERD symptoms.
What is the Physiological Goal of Doming the Diaphragm?
The goal is to improve lymphatic and venous return; it may improve immune function
When is Marian Clark Drainage indicated?
Menstrual cramps and pregnancy.
Restricted venous & lymphatic drainage.
Why perform Marian Clark Drainage?
This technique improves passive venous and lymphatic drainage from the lower abdomen and pelvis.
What are the indications for the Prone Ishiorectal Fossa Release?
Impaired pelvic diaphragm motion, and impaired venous and lymphatic drainage.
What are the indications for the Supine Pedal Pump AKA the Dalrymple Technique?
Lymphatic congestion
Fever
Infection
& Inability to use the thoracic pump.
What are the contraindications for the Supine Pedal Pump AKA the Dalrymple Technique?
Venous thrombosis;
Acute Ankle Sprain;
Achilles Sprain;
Gastrocenemious strain,
or other acute process and/or painful lower extremity conditions. It should also be avoided in the acute postoperative period in some abdominal surgery patients.
What are the indications for the Miller Thoracic (Lymphatic) Pump?
Infection;
Fever;
Lymphatic Congestion;
Rales;
Chronic Productive Cough;
Also Preventive, it may increase titers post vaccination.
What are the contraindications for the Miller Thoracic (Lymphatic) Pump?
Fractures;
Osteoporosis;
Moderate to Severe Dyspnea;
Regional Incisions;
Subclavian Lines;
Metastatic Cancer & So On.
What is the physiologic goal of the Miller Thoracic (Lymphatic) Pump?
Accentuate intrathoracic pressure, increase lymphatic return, loosen mucus plugs via the vibratory component, and potentially stimulate the autoimmune system.
What are the indications for the Miller Thoracic (Lymphatic) Pump, Exaggerated Respiration?
Infection;
Fever;
Lymphatic Congestion;
Rales;
Chronic Productive Cough;
Also Preventive.
What are the contraindications for the Miller Thoracic (Lymphatic) Pump, Exaggerated Respiration?
Fractures;
Osteoporosis;
Moderate to Severe Dyspnea;
Regional Incisions;
Subclavian Lines;
Metastatic Cancer or similiar condition.
What is the physiologic goal of the Miller Thoracic (Lymphatic) Pump, Exaggerated Respiration?
Accentuate Negative Intrathoracic pressure and increase lymphatic return.
What is the indications for the Thoracic (Lymphatic) Pump, Atelectasis Modification>
This technique is indicated for atelectasis
What are the contraindications of the Thoracic (Lymphatic) Pump, Atelectasis Modification?
Fracture;
osteoporosis;
severe congestion;
incision;
subclavian line;
Metastatic Cancer or similiar condition.
What is the physiologic goal of thoracic (Lymphatic) Pump, Atelectasis Modification.
The goal is to accentuate the negative phase of respiration and clear mucus plugs.
What are the indications for Pectoral Traction: Pectoralis Major, Pectoralis Minor, and Anterior Deltoid.
lymphatic congestion; upper extremity edema, mild to moderate dyspnea or wheeze, and/or reactive airway or asthma; it facilitates the thoracic pump.
What are the contraindications for Pectoral Traction
patient has hypersensitivity to touch at the anterior axillary fold, subclavian line, some pacemakers, metastatic cancer, or similar condition.
What is the Physiologic Goal of Pectorial Traction?
increase lymphatic return
What are the indications for the Abdominal Pump?
Congestive Heart Failure;
Infective processes; (may improve immune competence)
Upper Respiratory infection, asthma & COPD;
Restricted Mobility of the lumbar spine and thoracic cage;
Hiatal hernia;
Upper and lower GI dysfunction.
What are the contraindications of Abdominal Pump?
Thoracic cage mechanical derangements: fracture, dislocation;
Traumatic disruption of liver, spleen or adjacent organs;
Recent surgery to gallbladder or other adjacent organs;
A full stomach (postprandial)
What are the indications for Splenic Stimulation
Any infectious disease; also preventive
What are the contraindications for Splenic Stimulation?
Infectious mononucleosis; any splenic enlargement
Neoplasm infiltrating the spleen
How to exam a Spleen?
Physician stands to the patient’s right.

The left hand is placed over the lateral aspect of the costal margin.

It exerts and even pressure, then draws the skin and subcutaneous tissues caudad.

The right hand is placed below the lateral aspect of the costal margin, finger tips pointing toward the spleen.

Patient is instructed to inhale, just before the zenith of inhalation, compress the hands together slightly and dip a little deeper with the right finger tips.

The spleen, if enlarged, will be felt to bump up against the palpating fingertips. To be palpable a spleen must be enlarged to 1.5x it’s normal size
What are the indications for myofascial release/ BLT treatment of the Gallbladder?
Cholecystitis
Cholestasis
(Chronic upper abdominal pain)(in Nicholas & Nicholas) but not in Dr. E notes!
What are the contraindications for myofascial release/BLT treatment of the Gallbladder?
Cholelithiasis
Jaundice
Carcinoma of the Gall Bladder
How to palpate the gall bladder
The gall bladder lies on the inferior surface of the liver, lateral to the right mid-clavicular line. It is normally not palpable.
Can be palpated posterior to the liver border as a tender sausage like mass.
Hold fingers below the costal margin, instruct the patient to inhale. Positive Murphy sign is inspiratory arrest due to pain.
What are the indications for Myofascial Release/BLT Treatment of Kidney Release?
Post-Pyelonephritis
Nephrolithiasis
Inflammatory Disorders of the Kidney
What are the contraindications of the myofascial release/BLT treatment of the kidney?
Renal Carcinoma
Polycystic Kidneys
Congenital Anomalies such as Horseshoe Kidney
How to Palpate a Kidney?
-Stand at the side of the patient opposite the kidney you wish to palpate.
-Put your non-dominant hand beneath the lower ribs and lift them toward you.
-Use your dominant hand to palpate deep into the abdomen.
-The kidney’s normally feel about the size and firmness of a bar of soap.
