COMPARTMENT SYNDROME

runner's knee

Muscles are contained within “compartments”, of connective tissue and bone. Swelling within a compartment following injury or long-term overuse may cause compression of blood vessels and nerves inside it, and is known as compartment syndrome.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?

You will feel intense pain that persists both while resting and when you are active. You may experience weakness, tingling, or reduced sensation in the affected limb.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT?

Stop your activity, follow the RICE procedure, and seek medical advice. If left untreated, compartment syndrome can cause long-term nerve and muscle damage. Your doctor will carry out a physical examination, and you may need a MRI scan. Pain relief medication will be prescribed and you will need compartment pressure testing. Surgery may be required.

WHEN CAN I RETURN TO RUNNING?

If it is diagnosed early, recovery rates for this condition are good and you should be training within four to six weeks. Recovery may take up to three months after surgery.
