You guy gets all the famous sport players !!!!. The only famous
player I got was an ex Eagle football player who had fifty
fractures in his foot and believe it or not I did help the heel pain
He played for the Philadelphia Eagles in the early 1960's

Actually the guy played one season for the Eagles and was
traded to the Boston Patriots. I had never heard of him and can't
even remember his name. The thing I do remember is that that
he played with a fracture of his navicular bone and a complete
rupture of his Posterior Tibial tendon for six games to end
the season, and that was the end of his football . So bring on the big boys
and let me fix their feet. Michael Jordon where are you !!

PS: I still remember how I found out this patient was an ex-Eagle football player. He had written on his history form surgical removal of hematoma.

So i asked him on what part of his body did he have this removal. Well he tells me his rib cage and I asked was he in an auto accident. No he told me he played for the Philadelphia Eagles in the very early 1960's. This was
after he spent some time in Vietnam as a ranger. The stories he told me about that experience well I am sure you know them all.
