Comment from: Sally, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: August 17

I have had ankle and foot swelling, the feet actually take turns swelling up for many years, on and off. Once I started taking Yoga, I noticed that if a foot or ankle was swollen, and I did a Yoga position called 'legs up the wall' (but only if you do not have high blood pressure, or if, your high blood pressure is controlled by medication), within 3 or 4 minutes the swelling was down or completely gone. I also have found that by sitting on the ankle that was swollen, while watching TV or reading, the swelling disappeared! This latter has been a new discovery.
