Symptoms might be similar to shin splint and identifying the underlying cause of pain is paramount. Measuring the pressure in the muscle compartment will confirm the clinical diagnosis. Avoiding the stressful activity might help but often releasing the tight compartment will be necessary. This involves one or two small incisions and this take away the pain as the muscles then have more space to expand when being active. Recovery is relatively quick and full function will be regained.
