In House X-Ray

In House X-Ray

A patient came in after experiencing recurring pain on his foot after his taekwondo match. He went to see a podiatrist to have it checked and to see if there had been any internal damage done.  Because of this, he was able to prevent more damage from happening and he could kick his way to a gold medal once again.
