Even Iron Man has foot injuries!

Robert Downey Jr. hurt his foot while filming “Iron Man 3” while performing a stunt.  There will be a short delay in production while he recuperates, Marvel Studios stated on Thursday.  Foot injuries are common among athletes and superheroes.  The first step to prevent a foot injury from getting worse is to see a podiatrist as soon as possible.  They are going to be do x-rays to see if there are any fractures and if there are, what type of fracture.  They might also require having an MRI done to see if the surround ligaments are damaged in any way.  Depending on the severity of the fracture, your podiatrist is going to determine the type of treatment you need to get you on your way.  Call Houston Foot and Ankle Care to schedule your next appointment.

“Iron Man 3” is set for release next summer. Downey plays billionaire playboy Tony Stark and Gwyneth Paltrow is his love, Pepper Potts. Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley also star.

Downey also appeared as his Stark/Iron Man character earlier this summer in “The Avengers.” The actor also unveiled a clip of the forthcoming “Iron Man’ flick at Comic-Con last month.
