Unformatted text preview: +++ temp Edema Decreased lymphatic drainage Swelling - +++ hydrophilic action, produces pressure Degeneration chronic process of repair & fibrotic repair Pathophysiology Special Test Both local / peripheral changes in Both biomechanical/electrical activities Local toxins damage nerve sheaths , weaken / degen disks , ligs , jts , & bone changes (i.e. fractures & osteophytes) Peripheral Axoplasmic circulation carries neurotoxins to end organ & create pathology. Retrograde axoplasmic flow returns toxins to original subluxation & Overloads site...
