Specializes in Podiatry

H2o, H2o Everywhere.: Think of the swelling as a type of water cast or brace that the body is using to reinforce some instability of the injured ankle. The ankle really should be examined to determine the specifics of the edema. Aspects like type of edema, location, positional influences need to be evaluated to assess the swelling properly.
