wind puffs?

My mare has had wind puffs ever since I bought her, and I was just wondering if there really is a way to get rid of them? Many people have told me that they're there for good, but i'm kinda hoping they're wrong...

"The term “wind puffs” is commonly used to describe any puffiness in the area of the horse’s ankle. The two structures that can fill with fluid in the horse's ankle are the fetlock joint capsule and the flexor tendon sheath. "

I've always been told that they are there permanently.

I've been told that they can be drained...but that they will come back every few months.
