Overuse Injuries to the Leg
With spring on our doorstep, several runners invade the streets to make up for lost time. For many of us, this is the beginning of the running season. In any case, there are certain rules to follow if you want to avoid getting injured while practicing the terrific sport that is running. Injuries related to running are numerous, but very often preventable.
In this article, we will survey three different overuse injuries in the leg area: periostitis, stress fracture, and chronic compartment syndrome.
Periostitis, or medial tibial stress syndrome, is an inflammation of the periosteum, a tissue enveloping the tibial bone, causing pain on the inner surface of the tibia during running or other sports that involve jumping (track and field, soccer, basketball). It is crucial to take care of it quickly, because if left untreated, it can turn into a stress fracture. Often, the pain will occur at the beginning of physical exertion, then gradually diminish during warm-up, before increasing later during activity when the muscles begin to tire.
