Answer:

a) Stress fracture. Stress fracture includes localized pain, especially with increased activity and weight bearing. Anterior compartment syndrome can be characterized as acute or chronic. Acute compartment syndrome is a medical emergency caused by severe injury and presents with pain, decreased pulses, paresthesias, pallor, and paralysis. Chronic exertional compartment syndrome is often caused by exertion where patient will complain of bursting type pressure. Shin splints will typically have tenderness along mid distal or posterior medial tibia, without edema present, and resolves after rest.

Question:

If I were a type of cartilage (or group of connective tissue that consists of chondrocytes), what type of cartilage may I be if I was able to resist compression, tension, and pulling forces? And where would I be located in the body?

Answer:

The type of cartilage that is able to resist in multiple directions such as compression, tension, and pulling is known as fibrocartilage, which consists of thick collagen fibers that surround chondrocytes. This type of cartilage is located in areas such as the meniscus of the knee joint and in the outer ring of your discs in your vertebrae.
