Swelling of your legs and feet is caused when fluid builds up in the spaces between the cells of your body. This can be caused by any number of reasons, such as being on a long flight – something I know all too well.

Since this type of swelling knows no age, and can happen to practically anyone, I felt it would be a fun topic to discuss. More importantly, how exactly you go about soothing the symptoms of these types of aches and pains.

Before you read the list below, please note that I am by no means a doctor, or a professional in the field of feet and legs. Take the suggestions below as recommended techniques to help get you on your way of being in less pain. I know from personal trial and error the FUTURO™ Graduated Compression Legwear worked wonders for me.

3 Ways to Help Reduce Swelling in Your Legs and Feet

Low-Impact Exercises: Something I’ve found to be overlooked by people with pain in their body – especially their leg region – is exercise. I’m sure you yourself have cringed at the thought of going for a run. The good news is that exercise doesn’t necessarily have to be something that gets you all hot and sweaty. Low-impact exercises are great, and will actually do wonders for your body. In the case of swelling legs and feet, low-impact exercises can help blood circulation, which in return alleviates swelling.

FUTURO™ Graduated Compression Legwear: When I first heard about compression socks, I was a bit confused about how they would work. I thought maybe they had some sort of special gel that went with them that would absorb into the skin and help with blood flow. What do I know, I’m not a doctor?

The idea is actually pretty simple. Compression socks, like from the FUTURO™ Brand, has a graduated compression that helps reduce swelling and improve circulation. This means the sock is tightest around the area with the most swelling, usually your foot or lower leg area.

Leg and Foot Massagers: These are quite interesting, as they simulate circulation and alleviate pain that way. They work similarly to how compression pump therapy works.
