Hi @Shreya Kapoor, To manage your swollen ankles, you try to sit keeping your legs slightly higher than your hips. Also try out ; 1)Ankle rotations 2) Flexing and pointing your ankles. 3) Stretching of your legs. Some other tips; 1) Avoid standing for long period. 2) Avoid clothes that are tight around your ankles. 3)Use cold compress on your swollen areas. 4) Limit salt intake. Hope this helps😊

Hi Shreya! Adding on to What Shilpa has rightfully mentioned, ensure drinking plenty of water & try reducing salt and salty snacks from your diet. All the best!
