Exercise-induced compartment syndrome, also called exertional compartment syndrome and chronic compartment syndrome, is a condition that causes pain in the lower legs. 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. Dr. Andrew Marshall and Dr. Taryn Taylor perform compartment testing in the office at Carleton to determine if surgery would be beneficial. The surgery involves the release of the tight fascia, called a fasciotomy.
