The following post is also on DP MB #1 --

In 12/10/03 news, Dave Zabriskie (Postal/Berry Floor) is quoted as saying: "I'm still rehabilitating; there's still not the full range of motion back yet, and all my muscles aren't back yet, either," said Zabriskie in an interview with Cyclingnews. "I'm just working on the hyperextensions as far as the leg, though it doesn't really bother me when I ride, so that's what matters, I guess. It'll still take a little while, but I think I can definitely race."

Question -- any ideas what DZ means by "working on the hyperextension"? The CPM (continuous motion) machine we are working with ranges from -5 degrees (hyper) to 110 degrees (normal bending bringing calf towards back of thigh) for the knee. How much more hyperextension would be desirable (or achievable without being "double jointed")?

Or is DZ working on correcting a tendency to hyperextend?

Any personal or professional experience you can share relative to physical therapy and rehabilitation after transverse dislocated fractures of the foot/ankle, femor, and/or wrist would be aprreciated.

Many thanks
