Freaky Friday: Crazy Broken Foot Video

Foot injuries need medical attention--never try to walk them off!Ok, so you know those teaser blog posts you see on the internet that warn you of graphic content, then, when you click on the link, the video or pictures are really not that interesting?

Well this is not one of those moments!!

I came across this video where the man in question has fallen, hurt himself and broken his leg so badly that his foot is literally turned in the wrong direction!!!!!

As if this weren’t crazy-enough viewing, the injured individual gets up and proceeds to walk away with his foot facing backward!!!

Now, in my humble opinion, this man had to have been in an altered state-of-mind but, to a certain extent, he illustrates a major problem with people who sustain foot injuries: all too often, we are quick to try to ‘walk-off’ a sprain or any other type of foot pain, assuming that if we can move, we aren’t that badly hurt.

Well, take it from this guy: just because you can walk on a foot injury doesn’t mean you aren’t in serious need of medical attention.

Remember the golden rule: if you’ve sustained any kind of foot injury, whether acute or due to chronic impact, go see your Houston podiatrist to avoid serious complications.

And if you’re feeling brave, check out this VERY graphic injury video here!
