Injuries to the leg,ankle and foot

Foot, leg, and ankle swelling is similarly known as peripheral edema, which refers to an accumulation of fluid in these parts of the body. The buildup of fluid usually isn’t painful, unless it’s due to injury. Swelling is often other apparent in the lower areas of the body because of gravity.

There are many potential causes of foot, leg, and ankle swelling. In most cases, swelling occurs as a result of definite lifestyle factors, such as:

·         Being overweight: Excess body mass can decrease blood circulation, causing fluid to build up in the feet, legs, and ankles.

·         Standing or sitting for long periods: When the muscles are inactive, they can’t pump body fluids back up toward the heart. The retention of water and blood can cause swelling in the legs.
