November 29th, 2017. Hackensack, NJ. Cross County Cardiology, a Hackensack vein center, is pleased to announce the publication of a new guide to swollen legs and ankles. This guide, written by NJ vein expert Dr. Rick Pumill, is designed to educate the public about the causes and treatments of swollen legs and ankles. The vein center hopes the article will encourage the public to seek medical attention for persistent foot and ankle swelling, as it may be a sign of a serious problem.
According to Dr. Pumill, a wide range of factors can lead to swollen legs and ankles. “Legs and ankles can swell for a number of reasons, including inflammation in tissues or joints, fluid buildup, and insufficient veins. In rare cases, leg and ankle swelling may signify serious issues in the kidneys, heart, or liver.” Dr. Pumill notes that if swelling is accompanied by chest pain or difficulty breathing, medical attention should be obtained immediately.
Anyone suffering from non-emergency leg and ankle swelling is encouraged to use exercise and compression to manage their symptoms in the short term. Long term solutions can be found by consulting with a Hackensack County vein doctor. More information on leg and ankle swelling can be found on the Cross County Cardiology website:
