Biden broke his foot in several places: what happened
President-elect Joe Biden suffered multiple foot fractures while playing with his dog Major. His doctor said he would probably need to wear a special brace for several weeks. More about the incident told the publication CNN.
“The initial x-ray showed no obvious fractures, but the clinical examination required more detailed imaging,” said Dr. Kevin O'Connor on Sunday November 29th. - Follow-up computed tomography confirmed small cracks in the lateral and middle sphenoid bones, which are found in the midfoot. It is assumed that he will probably need to walk in a brace for several weeks. "
Earlier on Sunday, a spokesman for the president-elect announced that Biden was going to be examined by a podiatrist after he sprained his ankle while playing with a dog.
