Swollen Feet

Overproof Foot Lounge

Swollen feet and ankle are a common occurrence for most people.  It does not represent a disease but rather the symptom of an underlying disease. Poor circulation equals leg swelling. The lymphatic system collects wastes from all around the body. When lymph circulation becomes poor/bad, excess fluids and waste, start to accumulate in the body. This accumulation of water and waste products causes unnecessary swelling in the legs. Causes of swollen feet and ankles are numerous and includes the following:

  • Pregnancy
  • Injuries
  • Medications
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Alcoholism
  • Liver failure
  • Infections
  • Being overweight
  • Lymphedema
  • Blood clots
  • Prolong standing
  • Airplane rides
Swelling symptoms are dependent on the underlying causes. Symptoms may range form a painless increase in foot and ankle size, textural changes, changes in skin color, warmth in skin temperature, and ulceration with pus drainage.
Depending on the cause of the swelling, treatment can be simple as a lymphatic foot massage. Massage works to improve circulation in the lymph system, effectively healing the swelling in your legs. Massaging the feet and ankles with firm pressure helps to move the excess fluid out to the affected area.
