Swelling in your feet may not seem like a big deal, but it can say a lot about your overall health. Edema, or swelling, in the feet and legs can be a sign of poor heart function. It can also be related to poor kidney function. Both conditions can prove quite serious and even life-threatening.
Some swelling in the feet and lower legs is normal. Only proper evaluation by a foot and ankle specialist, like Dr. Dean Dorfman or Dr. Dominick Sansone at East Ocean Podiatry, can determine the severity and the cause of the swelling. Once this is determined, your physician can recommend a proper course of treatment to relieve swelling and any related discomfort.
Schedule an appointment with East Ocean Podiatry today to discuss swollen feet, swollen ankles or any other foot or ankle concerns.
