The Run Smarter Podcast

Apr 22, 2021

On today's episode Brodie talks about all things Compartment Syndrome. It is a running-related injury that is less commonly discussed and poorly understood.

If you have ever experienced lower leg pain that gradually builds up throughout a run, only to subside quickly following rest, it could be compartment syndrome.

We start with the anatomy of the lower leg and the related information for compartment syndrome including the separate fascia sleeves, arteries and nerves.

Brodie then talks about the pathophysiology, mechanism and spectrum of symptoms associated with this condition.

Lastly, we have treatment for both the anterior and posterior compartment of the lower leg including specific gait re-training advice.
