Exercise-induced compartment syndrome, also called exertional compartment syndrome and chronic compartment syndrome, is a condition that causes pain over the front of the shin bone. Patients typically experience the pain after a period of activity or exercise, and it is quickly relieved by rest. The pain from exercise-induced compartment syndrome can be quite severe, and it often limits a patient's activity level.

What Causes Exercise-Induced Compartment Syndrome?
Exercise-induced compartment syndrome is due to a pressure build-up within the muscles of the leg. Muscles are enclosed within a tight tissue called a fascia. This fascia wraps around and contains the muscle. Normally, the fascia has enough extra room within to allow the muscle to function without problem.

When activity levels are increased, blood flow to a muscle increases, and the size of the muscle increases. In most people, the fascia allows sufficient room to accommodate this increase in muscle size during exercise. However, in patients with exercise-induced compartment syndrome, the fascia is too tight, and it constricts the muscle during activity.

Why Does Muscle Constriction Cause Pain in Exercise-Induced Compartment Syndrome?
As the muscle expands and becomes constricted by the fascia, the blood flow to the muscle is interrupted. The lack of blood flow causes ischemia -- the same phenomenon as a heart-attack. When blood flow to a muscle is interrupted, pain can occur. When this occurs in the heart muscle, chest pain is the result; when it occurs in the leg, leg pain is the result.

Before you begin to worry, ischemia of the heart and exercise-induced compartment syndrome are very different! The cause of these problems is different, but the end result causes a similar problem. Furthermore, relief of exercise induced compartment syndrome is usually very easy -- simply stop exertion of the muscle.

What Are the Symptoms of Exercise-Induced Compartment Syndrome?
The most common symptom is pain during with activity that is quickly relieved with rest. Patients may notice a tingling or numbness in the leg or foot due to lack of blood flow to the nerves. Often when the symptoms are present, the area over the muscles of the front of the leg feels very tight.

Diagnosis is made by measuring the pressure within the muscles of the leg. Usually a pressure measurement is made at rest, and then the patient does some activity (such as a quick run) until the pain is present. A repeat measurement is then made and the pressure change is compared. Normally, the pressure difference from rest and activity is small. Patients with exercise-induced compartment syndrome will have a dramatic increase in pressure readings when the symptoms are present after exercise.

What Other Conditions Can Causes these Symptoms?
Several other conditions need to be considered. Exercise-induced compartment syndrome is uncommon, and it is much more likely that shin pain is being caused by one of the following conditions:

o Medial tibial stress syndrome (shin splints)
o Stress fractures

What Is the Treatment?
A period of rest may be attempted, as well as avoiding any activities that causes the symptoms. However, if the diagnosis of exercise-induced compartment syndrome is clear, and the symptoms persist, then surgery may be needed. The surgery involves the release of the tight fascia, called a fasciotomy. An incision is made over the affected area, and then the surgeon cuts the tight tissue that surrounds the muscle. The major risk of this surgery is cutting a small nerve that provides sensation to the top of the foot. Usually the surgeon can identify the nerve and avoid it, but it is still possible to damage the nerve. Patients who sustain an injury to this nerve will have an area of permanent numbness over the top of the foot.

common sense
Probably a muscle strain. Be easy on it for a few days.

relzx since you been doing excersiaze, just relax a bit lay off the excersize


go to a doctor. thats what their for.

Julie B.
I have no idea.

I have two questions for you. Did you do anything out of your routine? Did you hurt yourself doing something else?

WE can't tell you what's wrong with YOUR leg. It's not our leg, it's yours.

I would go to a doctor if it doesn't quit hurting.

you could've pulled a groin muscle. go see a doctor.

Pulled muscle?

could be a whole heap of things???? beast get to doc if your worried! good luck!


talk to your doctor

peter b
No pain, No gain!...just don't work out as hard. You gotta gradually build up.

Try stretching the areas out, take a break from your physical activities, and if it still continues, see a doctor, it could be a bit more serious then a pulled muscle.

SARAH!!! ツ
You proboably have flat feet. I had the same problem. Go to a foot doctor and ask.

If this is happens more then once then it might be something wrong with your feet or knees try the doctor they can tell you if something is wrong I have something like this they made me special objects to pu tin my shoes now im all good.

i could be a pulled muscle. i would go see a doctor if it lasts more than 3-4 days/

you probably pulled a muscle. i always do it. to prevent it, stretch b4 physical activities! and stay hidrated

Well did you hurt it????????

not a choncho
you probobly pulled a muscle in your inner thigh area,
try using ice with it and NEVER try to do a split to avoid this again

Well...did you hurt yourself?

tell the coppers hahaha
uhh thats nastyy

but idk maybe you should get it amputated
