"Chronic exertional compartment syndrome now treated at the center for regenerative medicine." According to Dr. A.J. Farshchian MD the medical director for the center for regenerative medicine.

Due to the fact that patients typically present with a normal examination as well as non-impressive diagnostic findings Diagnosis is usually overlooked: Chronic exertional compartment syndrome may prove a challenge to detect, and acute compartment syndrome may require immediate surgical intervention. The cause is described as when a muscle becomes too big for the sheath that surrounds it causing pain.

The enlarged muscle blocks the flow of blood producing ischemia which in turns produces pain. The large muscle on the outside of the shin area is called the tibialis anterior and is surrounded by a sheath. This is called the anterior compartment of the lower leg. Over use of this muscle causes swelling, the compartment most often involved is the anterior.

Lateral compartment is also a common place for involvement of overuse. Usually, a patient with chronic exertional compartment syndrome has no symptoms at rest. Compartment pressures may remain elevated for up to 40-60 minutes after exercise.

The Center for Regenerative Medicine in Miami, Florida concentrates on helping arthritic and injured people to get back to a functional level of life and their activities using non-surgical techniques and Orthopedic medicine. The center's expertise is in treatment of conditions of spine, knees, shoulders and other cartilage damages.
