Abstract

Lower leg pain and injury is a common occurrence in athletes that has been described in the medical and athletic literature. The various pathoanatomic processes, which could present as lower leg pain in the athlete, include medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS), stress fracture, tendinopathy, nerve entrapment syndromes, vascular syndromes, and muscle injuries. The etiopathogenesis and clinical presentations of these conditions are described, and a brief account of diagnostic studies and treatment options is discussed.
