How does lymph flow through the lymphatic system?

Lymph flows through lymphatic vessels to lymphatic trunks, then into collecting ducts. The lymph is then disposed into the subclavian venous. All body tissues have blood capillaries running parallel. Allows the diffusion of tissue fluid into the lymphatic pathway from interstitial spaces.

How does lymph flow through the lymphatic system?

The lymph moves through the body in its own vessels, making a one-way trip from the interstitial space to the subclavian and base of the neck veins. The lymphatic system doesn't have a heart and therefore its upward movement is dependent on the actions of the joint and muscle pumps.

Second, how does lymph flow from the heart to and from it? Lymphatic System Blood flows through the veins, capillaries and arteries. Lymph flows open circuit from the tissues to lymphatic vessel. Blood flows toward the Heart and awayfrom the Heart. Lymph flows only in one direction (towards your heart).
