First, it’s important to understand what actually causes feet to swell. According to Rock Positano, DPM, MSc, MPH and director of non-surgical foot and ankle service at Hospital for Special Surgery, the most common causes are either related to current health conditions or are caused by irritants like too-tight shoes or long plane rides.

Dr. Positano gave a laundry list of possible causes for swollen feet related to other health conditions: obesity, water retention, tight Achilles, congestive heart failure, deep vein thrombosis, kidney disease, high blood pressure, swollen and inflamed Achilles tendon and plantar fascia, joint disease secondary to diabetes, gout, trauma like ankle sprains and generalized tendon injuries, bone fractures, varicose veins, arterial blockage, atherosclerosis, cysts behind the knees, systemic infections, flat arch, or blocked lymph glands.
