Lymphatic drainage of the neuraxis in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A hypothetical model for the cranial rhythmic impulse

  [ 100 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By RN Perrin • www.ProHealth.com • July 31, 2007


Journal: The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. 2007 Jun;107(6):218-24.

Author and affiliation: Perrin RN. The Perrin Clinic, Manchester, Greater Manchester, UK. [E-mail: rayperrin@btconnect.com ]

PMID:17635902

The cranial rhythmic impulse is a palpable, rhythmic fluctuation believed to be synchronous with the primary respiratory mechanism. The precise physiologic mechanism of the cranial rhythmic impulse is not fully understood.

Based on traditional and current views of the cranial rhythmic impulse, animal studies, and clinical findings in patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, the author argues that the cranial rhythmic impulse is the rhythm produced by a combination of cerebrospinal fluid drainage from the neuraxis (brain and spinal cord) and pulsations of central lymphatic drainage induced by the sympathetic nervous system.

In addition, evidence is provided to demonstrate that a disturbed, palpable, and visible neurolymphatic process leads to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This process may also explain the pathophysiologic mechanisms leading to other disease states.

Finally, the author's proposed manual treatment protocol for patients with chronic fatigue syndrome is described.
