Stuff About Compartment Syndrome...

By Dr. Michael Williams
Compartment syndrome is a condition that usually effects either the lower leg or the forearm. These areas of the body are broken up into compartments by fascia and each compartment contains, muscles, nerves, and arteries. Compartment syndrome occurs when the pressure inside one of these compartments rises and causes symptoms, inadequate blood flow, or nerve compression. Compartment syndrome can be broken up into two different types: acute and chronic.
Acute Compartment Syndrome is a sudden and dramatic increase in the pressure of a compartment. This usually results from a crushing trauma, a burn injury, prolonged over-tight...

In July, Jordan Hasay plans to head to Eugene, Oregon, for the 2016 Olympic Trials. It should be a sweet moment for the 24-year-old distance runner who, just last summer, was forced to withdraw from the USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships because of a case of plantar fasciitis, making her ineligible to compete at the IAAF World Championships.
She and coach Alberto Salazar had to make a difficult decision, as they faced the young athlete’s first injury during an otherwise smooth career. And Hasay, like many runners who have had to deal with...

ED. A few days ago we got this email from Hannah Merritt promoting an awesome triathlon in eastern South Dakota, which was won in 2015 by Minnesotans Bridget McCoy (photo center) and David Thompson.
Hi MTN Guys,

Cinco Du Mayo en Cinco de Septimo...Updates...

CINCO DU MAYO PREVE - It was heartening to see last weekend's Falls Du get the kind of turnout (300+ registrants) that it got prior to the 2011, when tri and du attendance was thriving. We'd like to think that the sport has begun an "upturn" phase.
With crossed fingers, we are hoping that Saturday's Cinco Du Mayo races attract record, or near record, participation. You can help. If you're not already registered, then sign up. And convince a friend or two to join you. We think you'll be glad you did. After all, the Square Lake venue is awesome. And there will be post race tacos and entrants get a cool, long sleeved tech shirt. How can someone say no to that stuff?
Prior to last week's Falls Du, we made some predictions. They were incorrect, of course. The list of entrants we saw did not include "game changing" athletes, like Kevin O'Connor and Dani Vsetecka, who were late registrants. We're totally cool with this. Our predictions are meant to stimulate interest and discussion. Being right is rare. All we care about is that the race is well executed and participants go home with great memories. An exciting, competitive race is gravy....
