Its function is to resorb the filtered water back i nto the capillary . The force that powers resorption is con tained i n the blood proteins which collect water by m eans of a special type of suction pressure k nown as oncotic pressure or coll oid osmotic pressure . 4% These proteins are able to resorb the water filtered at normal blood pressure, so that a fluid equi libri um (Starling equilibrium) is mai ntai ned i n the pericapillary spaces. Thus, a flow of l iquid through the capiIlary is brought about by filtration and resorbtion wh ich occurs independently of diffusion .
Somotor lymph drainage . We achieve this with the special lymph drainage technique of Dr. Vodder. The total pumping capacity of the lymph vessels is provided by the sum of the lymphatic segments. An i ncrease in i ntralymphatic pres sure can also result in an increase in the lymph pulse rate . The rate of lymph flow i ncreases with an increased lymph-obligatory load . This means that i ncreased lymph production , for example though M L D , au tomatically accelerates lymph drai nage . The contraction rate of the lym phatic segments is also dependent on temperature, and i ncreases with rising temperature .
It is important to note here that contractility of the vessel walls is also dependent on the tonus of the wall. The chief influence on pulsation, however, comes from stretching. e. by filling, and/or by stretching the vessel from outside. Mis/in has proved experimentally that an increased contraction is produced by stretching the lymph angion lengthwise and transversely. Moving the skin during Vodder's special lymph drainage technique creates this lengthwise and diagonal stret ching of the lymph vessels and thus leads to an increased contraction.
