PT7316/PT7318: Management of Musculoskeletal Conditions (Swift)

Anterior Compartment Syndrome #1

Compartment syndrome is a painful condition that occurs when pressure within the muscles builds to dangerous levels. This pressure can decrease blood flow, which prevents nourishment and oxygen from reaching nerve and muscle cells. (From the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)

Anterior Compartment Syndrome #2

Shin Splints #1

Shin splints (medial tibial stress syndrome) is an inflammation of the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue around your tibia. Pain typically occurs along the inner border of the tibia, where muscles attach to the bone. (From the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)

Shin Splints #2

Stress Fracture #1

Stress fractures are tiny cracks in a bone. Stress fractures are caused by the repetitive application of force, often by overuse — such as repeatedly jumping up and down or running long distances. Stress fractures can also arise from normal use of a bone that's been weakened by a condition such as osteoporosis. (From the Mayo Clinic)
