In brief: Blood flow

Because blood might have been pooling in your feet/ankle region and by elevating you are removing the gravitational effects and essentially helping to return blood back to the heart.

In brief: Swelling

Elevating your feet will decrease the swelling in your legs and reduce the pressure on the nerves and vessels as well.
