Last fall, right in the middle of the cross season I broke my foot, such timing! Since then I have been working with Matt Schneider at Boulder Center for Sports Medicine Boulder Center for Sports Medicine to get me back to racing. As I mentioned in my first article about BCSM they are the local experts when it comes to the healing needs of athletes, just walking around the facility you will find autographed photos from world class cyclist whom all have been treated at BCSM... and then there is me! Recently VeloNews copy editor, Tom LeCarner, has been working with Andy Pruitt who has knee pain that keep him off of the bike for most of 2008. His out come is not as good as mine, I'm about complete with my healing, he has some more work. Thanks to my doctor, Matt Schneider, my foot is healing and I'll be back to the field racing probably again in May!
In addition to BCSM, I have to give a special thanks to the nice folks at Smith & Nephew who GAVE me a Exogen Ultrasound Bone Healing System. This device helps stimulates bone growth which shortens the time to heal and according to my doctor, the stimulator as worked very well! thanks folks
