Freiberg's Infraction: Symptoms, Diagnosis And Treatment Approach


Freiberg's infraction is an inflammatory condition that affects the second metatarsal, which is the thin bone that runs along the top of your foot and connects your ankle to your second toe. It occurs due to a loss of blood supply to the end of the metatarsal, and it's typically seen in children and teenagers during growth spurts when the metatarsal head comes under pressure, but it can also be caused by trauma and repetitive strain.
