Why do we get swelling?

Swelling is nothing but the level of increase in the movement of fluid and white blood cells into the injured area. The release of chemicals and the compression of nerves in the area of injury cause pain. The pain and swelling can keep the athlete from using the injured part, serving to protect it from further injury. Swelling is an abnormal enlargement of a body part. It is typically the result of inflammation or a buildup of fluid. Edema describes swelling in the tissue outside of the joint. Swelling is of two types which depend on the extent of the symptom. Acute and chronic. Acute refers to swelling that occurs within 24 hours of injury. Chronic refers to swelling that occurs over a long period of time
