Hello there......., The treatment for swollen feet and ankles depends on the underlying cause.. For many people, simply raising their feet above their heart or simply getting off their feet regularly during the day will reduce or eliminate the swelling. However, for many other people, treatment of the underlying cause of the swelling is required.... Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight also increases the foot swelling....
