You can’t prevent acute compartment syndrome caused by an accident or injury. But you can seek early diagnosis and treatment to prevent complications.

If you have a splint or cast that feels too tight, tell your healthcare provider. Pay particular attention if you’ve taken pain medication and that part of your body still hurts or swells. The cast or splint should get adjusted to prevent compartment syndrome.
