Johnathan Horton’s Foot Injury

Artistic gymnast Jonathan Horton is not letting a foot injury (which he suffered last October)stops him from competing in the summer Olympics.  Although he considers the injury a minor setback, he still calls it a “blessing.”  He says that he will “not only be able to do the harder routines, but that he will be doing them better.”  As soon as you experience a foot injury caused by any type of exercise, do not hesitate to schedule an appointment with your podiatrist.  Leaving a foot injury unattended will cause it to swell, with further unnecessary complications.  It might swell and become painful.  Dr. Gabriel Maislos will relieve your feet with professional care and attention.  We have the latest technology to help you get back in your feet.  Schedule your appointment today!
