: Chronic shin splints are very common with compartment diagnosis. Shin splints cause small tears in the bone sheath and can be extremely painful although not usually permanent. I had a facsiotomy done on my right leg just over a year ago and experienced a 90% recovery. I still experience pain to touch over the incision site and severe pain with running but there has been a graet improvement on the walking end of things. Has anyone elsehad similar experiences? I would love some ideas on how to increase my running. I have tried starting very slow and short distances but still find myself having to stop after a few minutes. I am booked to see my surgeon again in two weeks time because I feel I have used all my resources.
: I had a fascia release in my lateral compartments in both legs. I still have pain at rest. I still get symptoms as well with exercise, but they are not as severe. I am extremely point sensitive under my ankle bone, along the base of my foot. Has anyone else experienced this? I have been told by some that I may have it in my anterior compartment as well, but I am very frustrated and would like to talk with others whe have gone through the same surgery.
