Posts for tag: There Are Many Reasons For Swollen Ankles

There are several reasons why your ankles and feet might swell. Any injury to a tendon, muscle, ligament, or bone can cause inflammation around the injured area, which leads to swelling. This type of swelling can present with a bruise along the affected area; and can occur minutes, or even hours after injury.
 
It could also just be the end of the day. At the end of a full day of walking and sitting, gravity has been consistently trying to pull the fluid down to your ankles and feet, so your ankles and feet might be more swollen than when you first wake up. Our muscles and veins consistently have to work against gravity to filter the fluid up to our heart, but if there is an imbalance and gravity wins, you see that characteristic end of day swelling.
 
Other conditions causing swelling include: lymphedema, a diet high in sodium, a blood clot, medication, or high blood pressure.
 
If you suffer from swollen ankles, our award-winning expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, or Maspeth are available to evaluate your problem and discuss your options for treatment with you.
