I had a recent case that challenged my diagnostic skills. A young soccer athlete was referred to me who complained of right lower leg pain following the start of soccer practice approximately 6 weeks prior to presentation in my office. He had been initially diagnosed with "shin splints" and treated with R.I.C.E methods by his team trainer. His symptoms persisted and he was seen by his primary care doctor. The assessment was same. He was suffering from "severe" shin splints. Oral anti-inflammatory meds, R.I.C.E. and some home exercises were given. NO response then he was ordered outpatient physical therapy. A few treatments went by without relief; the patient's primary care provider referred him to me.

My exam showed the patient demonstrated "classic" shin splint palpable tenderness along the distal medial and anterior lateral aspects of the right leg. The worsening of the pain with exercise was present, also a common finding in the shin splint injuries. With my athlete patients I will often make the patient exercise to the point of where they get similar onset of pains reported. We did so. He described pain that was both an ache and a burn in sensation at same locations above. He had strong pulses. All sensation was intact. This young man had very large, muscular calves which were very tight and turgid even in resting condition. His leg x-rays were negative for stress fracture. My next most likely diagnosis was Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome (CECS). I set up a time to analyze leg compartmental pressures: resting and post exercise reading are indicated. His were 10 mm and 38 mm respectively.
