Do you know of any alternative treatments for compartment syndrome that don't involve surgery?


Posted by Sarah

I have a reasonably serious case of compartment syndrome in my legs, pressures that are meant to be around 15 are up in the high 40's early 50's, so as you could imagine, it causes alot of pain - even just walking down the road!

My understanding is that surgery is going to be my best option to fix this.  Any other suggestions?

It depends on your specific situation...but Traditional Chinese Medicine, using acupuncture and chinese herbs, may be able to regulate the circulation in your legs, diminishing your symptoms considerably.
