Elevating Your Feet to Reduce Swelling | Swollen Legs Treatment
Swelling of the legs is caused by extra fluid in the legs. Gravity, (which is everywhere and free) moves fluid downhill. Get your swollen leg up and the swelling goes down. Of course, the gravity thing works for arms, too. If your arm is swollen, say from a sting or trauma, elevating it will, you guessed it, decrease the swelling.
