Patient Comments: Compartment Syndrome - Treatment

What was your treatment or therapy for compartment syndrome? Did you require surgery?

Comment from: joshua, Male (Patient) Published: June 02

I had surgery (fasciotomy) on both lower part of my leg for compartment syndrome; it appears to have fixed the problem. I know I'm having the pains underneath both feet, surgeon suggested to try natural remedies like acupuncture. I did try but still have the pain.
