Learn more about chronic exertional compartment syndrome with Brian Gruber, MD, MBA, board certified orthopedic surgeon. Chronic exertional compartment syndrome is a condition that can often be challenging to diagnose. Many times, we see patients in the clinic who we diagnose with this condition (after proper testing), who have been to several doctors. Learn what this condition is, who it affects most (all you runners out there take note!), how it’s diagnosed, and the treatment options. Dr. Gruber also explains the difference between chronic exertional compartment syndrome and acute compartment syndrome – the latter being more common and a medical emergency.
