Chronic compartment syndrome occurs when pressure in the muscle rises to unsafe levels, potentially decreasing blood flow. High-impact sports and repetitive stress on your muscles often trigger chronic compartment syndrome symptoms.


Treatment will focus on relieving pain so you can return to your daily activities, favorite exercise or sports routine. Our orthopedic and sports medicine doctors may recommend physical therapy and massage. Depending on your desired level of physical activity, we may recommend surgery to cut or remove the elastic tissues encasing your muscles, giving them room to expand and move.
