Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is an inflammation-associated disorder which develops as a consequence of limb-confined trauma. The disease is characterized by spontaneous pain, swelling, skin color change, and movement disorder. Here, we report two cases studies on the remarkable amelioration of CRPS by the injections of placental extract into acupuncture points. A 59-year-old female patient with CRPS after 6 week-casting due to a fracture on the right metatarsal bone showed symptoms of severe pain, reddish skin color change, swelling, and restricted articular movement. Another 49-year-old female patient with CRPS after an arthroscopic surgery on the left ankle joint suffered from pricking pain, swelling, and movement restriction in the foot. Acupuncture points BL23, BL24, BL25, and LR4 localized on low back and ankle joint of both patients, were selected for application of placental extract. Both parents showed complete pain relief, swelling remission, redness disappearance, and articular movement restoration.
