Edema Therapy

Edema is a condition that occurs when the capillary blood vessels in your body begin to leak fluid which can build up in the surrounding tissue, causing uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous swelling. Although it can occur in any part of the body, it most frequently occurs in the arms, hands, legs, ankles, and feet.

Causes of the condition could result from medication, or an underlying illness such as congestive heart failure, kidney disease, or cirrhosis of the liver.

With proper care, there are ways to manage the condition which include 1) taking medication to address the fluid and salt levels of the body or; 2) by avoiding situations that can exacerbate the problem such as prolonged sitting, resulting in more leg pain and swelling.

According to the Mayo Clinic Edema can cause the following symptoms:

  • Increasingly painful swelling
  • Difficulty walking
  • Stiffness
  • Stretched skin, which can become itchy and uncomfortable
  • Increased risk of infection in the swollen area
  • Scarring between layers of tissue
  • Decreased blood circulation
  • Decreased elasticity of arteries, veins, joints and muscles
  • Increased risk of skin ulcers
