Several weeks ago the internet was all a buzz with concern that superstar Harrison Ford had injured himself on the set of the new Star Wars movie. This scares me because:
- I wanted to BE Indiana Jones in College (thank you minor in Archaeology!). As much as I like Han Solo, Indiana has always been my heart. “Rats? It had to be rats!"
- Star Wars fans are in a tizzy, which means it must have been a problem. In my extensive fan ‘Google’ search, I found out that he most likely broke his 5th metatarsal bone (on the outside of his foot) and that he is down for the count for 6-8 weeks.
But the good news is that Harrison Ford is in good hands. With digital x-rays like what we have at Heartland Foot and Ankle, doctors were able to diagnose and treat his fracture easily. We recently had a team member spend several painful hours at the ER due to an ankle injury – as we reminded her and our patients, always feel free to call us 24 hours a day to receive advice and treatment. We have same day emergency appointments available and are ready to help get you back in line for the new Star Wars movie in no time!
