I don’t know about you, but I always enjoy watching the NBC family friendly show “America’s Got Talent (AGT.)” The variation of acts and talent America brings to the AGT stage keeps the show fresh and audience wanting more.  Being the first all-male season finale, Americas Got Talent crowned Ventriloquist Paul Zerdin of London, England winner of season 10 and 1 million dollars.  While Paul is preparing for his new show in Vegas, AGT was sad to say good bye to judge Howard Stern after 4 seasons with the show.

Becoming familiar with the emotional ride this show has you experience, we were shocked to see ladder stunt performer Uzeyer Novruzov from Russia, fall from a 15 foot ladder during his performance in week two of the semifinals. His fall occurred while performing an act that he had tried 10 years previous that left him injured and in a coma for three days. Surprisingly Uzeyer was voted through to the finale despite his fall. During the finale he was unable to maintain the previous week’s performance level due to fall and chances of further injury. Uzeyer’s 20 years’ of ladder stunts proved to be a dangerous yet exciting act but his injuries kept him from winning 1,000,000 dollars!

Traumatic events like these can also keep you from performing at your best. It is important not to ignore foot and ankle injury and to seek proper medical attention. Here at Affiliated Foot and Ankle Care we treat anything from calcaneal fractures to planter fasciitis. Not seeking proper care for the lower extremity can cause serious long term damage. Let us help you to improve your performance and health at one of offices located in Edison, and Monroe.
