Exertional compartment syndrome usually goes away if you stop exercising. But you should still discuss it with your healthcare provider. Your provider may recommend:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
  • Cross-training (mixing up exercise types, instead of doing the same thing over and over).
  • Low-impact exercise.
  • Orthotics (inserts for your shoes).
  • Physical therapy.
  • Softer surfaces for workouts (running on tracks instead of concrete, for example).

If those options don’t work, fasciotomy may be an option.
