Freiberg disease is a form of a vascular necrosis which generally develops in the second metatarsal bone, but can occur in any metatarsals. It is common in women aged 10-18 years, athletes and those with abnormally long metatarsals. The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy is based on the flow of the Qi energy and balance of yin and yang. According to TCM disease is as a result of an internal imbalance of yin and yang and when the body's qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely. TCM can be used in the treatment of Freiberg disease and can give very satisfying results. Our patient is a 16 year old female diagnosed with Morbus Freiberg, also known as a Freiberg infraction. In the treatment, we used one acupuncture point - ST 44 (Neiting). Four acupuncture treatments were made in our clinic, one with cold needle and three with fire needle. After the 4th treatment, our patient was able to walk normally, the edema was reduced and the pain was gone. Acupuncture treatment can reduce the pain and inflammation, and restore the function of the foot normally.
