London, Mar 27 (ANI): Manchester United medics are used to fixing up injuries of players such as Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo. However, they once came to the rescue of a very different kind of celeb - Harrison Ford.

The veteran actor was filming the hit Indian Jones movie Temple of Doom in Sri
Lanka when he injured himself on an elephant.

He returned to continue shooting in the UK with a chronic bad back.

Ford revealed to Empire magazine that try as he would, finding a physician to treat his bad back turned out to be a real problem.

Thats when he turned to the Manchester United doctor.

I couldnt find anyone to treat me in London, Harley Street doctors were afraid of the liability issues. I finally got the Manchester United team doctor to treat me, The Sun quoted him, as saying.

He then had pay the doc a visit every week for an epidural.

They had to strap me to a trolley with a bottle of nitrous oxide. I had to be carried feet first down the narrow, twisting stairs and was taken by ambulance to Manchester to see the doctor, he added. (ANI)
