Swelling | Try Chiropractic!

In medical parlance, swelling is the enlargement of organs caused by accumulation of excess fluid in tissues, called edema. It can occur throughout the body (generalized), or a specific part or organ can be affected (localized). Swelling is considered one of the five characteristics of inflammation; along with pain, heat, redness, and loss of function. A body part may swell in response to injury, infection, or disease, as well as because of an underlying lump. Swelling — especially swelling of the ankle can also occur if the body is not circulating fluid well.

Soft tissue swelling can be caused by direct trauma or a strain (muscle) or sprain (joint) caused by a repetitive or overwhelming type injury. Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation are the typical treatments recommended. Proper assessment by a health care specialist such as a chiropractor should also be sought out.
