Are there non surgical treatments for exercise induced compartment syndrome? is there a way to stretch or grow the compartment?
No. Compartment syndrome of the quads and calfs are the most common muscles affected. Releasing the pressure quickly saves muscle death and can prevent kidney damage. The fascia surrounding the swollenmuscle is not elastic and needs to be cut as soon as possible. Pain and numbness are a bad sign but there are rare instances where very close observation may avoid surgery.
Nonop Tx exists. Several nonop treatment options can be attempted. New running shoes are routinely warranted. Gait analysis can be tried to ensure you are not a "tense" runner with affected muscles lays contracting and never relaxing while running. Weight loss, if warranted , may help. A period of rest followed by a gradual uptick in mileage, intensity, and elevation is also worth trying.
