There are many possible causes for swollen ankles. Some causes include trauma, improper function of the lymphatic system, tumors, varicose veins, infection, poor circulation, hypertension, and congestive heart failure, among others. A medical professional can best diagnose the cause and recommend proper treatment. A class IV laser therapy regimen can help alleviate the pain associated with swollen ankles.
“Swollen ankles are common and are usually not a cause for concern, especially if you have been standing or walking a great deal throughout the day. However, feet and ankles that stay swollen could be a sign of a more serious health problem.”
