Re: Great Workout's Lately?

<t>Hi JJ<br/> you have discovered the key to surviving this injury! my first couple times back on the road were a little tricky. the balance thing is a little tough. not being able to stand is hard at times. i did change my gearing and that helped (i live in very hilly terrain). i do not ride alone ...

Re: New to This/Son injured

<t>good luck with your research. beware that there are very few experts out there and every injury is unique. if you cant get to the mayo clinic, try johns hopkins. they have a brachial plexus doc there. his name is Dr. Belzberg.<br/> <br/> there are specific tests to identify brachial plexus injuri...
