Re: Compartment Syndrome?

FYI @marpr227 and @Rip :The athlete I have referenced over the past several weeks continues to be impacted by compartment syndrome. She is under the care of a sports physiotherapist and I leave the rehab work to the specialist.  As her coach I continue to keep her involved with the team. She has expertise in middle distance, long and triple jumps and she has been encouraged to work with and coach particularly our younger athletes. Further, in my role, I continue to support her as a student/athlete who has lost her identity on a team on which she has played significant roles during 2 consecutive outdoor and 2 consecutive indoor championships and now is feeling she has let the team down. Our goal, hers and mine, is to get through this and prepare for the outdoor season.

I appreciate your thoughts and any coach in The Run Community who might weigh in on tibial is compartment syndrome.

Re: Compartment Syndrome?

Is she making any progress? It's been a while, and untreated or mistreated compartment syndrome can be serious.

Re: Compartment Syndrome?

Yes @marpr227  I believe my athlete is making progress. At present the athlete is undergoing non-invasive muscular and fascia therapy of the area of the anterior tibia. Also, the physiotherapist is looking at the full connective chain in considering other issues potentially mpacting the lower legs.

Re: Compartment Syndrome?

Athlete with what we thought might be compartment syndrome is doing much better. Shoes were all wrong for her. And she got them at a running specialty store. Anyway, she's had about four weeks of pain-free running and Saturday will run her first race since November. She can't wait until Sat. Neight can I.
