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. Taryn Taylor performs compartment testing in the clinic to determine if surgery would be beneficial. Dr. Andy Marshall performs the surgery involving the release of the tight fascia, called a fasciotomy.
