Can compartment syndrome be prevented?

For acute compartment syndrome, early diagnosis and treatment can prevent further complications, but there is no definite way to prevent it. People with casts should be aware that if pain and swelling increases even after taking medication, they should see their healthcare provider immediately. Gradually building up your endurance may prevent chronic compartment syndrome. Wearing the right shoes, altering gait pattern in runners, and improving flexibility may also prevent or decrease the severity of chronic compartment syndrome.
