I was introduced to Dr. Ed by a friend and he has addressed a myriad of issues ranging from rotator cuff to lumbar to a partially torn hamstring. He has helped get me back to the gym and stay there while rehabbing these things. For years I have been looking for someone with his background. & credentials. He understands the athlete.
This is the place to start for any chronic injury, sports injury, or those pesky aches and pains that come as we age. I sought out KinetikChain for a lower back injury that had me in pain almost constantly. My workouts were ground down to nothing and I watched my strength wilt away. My physician recommended an MRI of the lower back with possible surgery. I sought out Dr Ed Le Cara as a second opinion and he immediately started me on an exercise, stretching, and therapy regimen that relieved the pain in two weeks and had me back in the gym in four weeks. I was 100% within two months and all for less than my out of pocket expense for the MRI.
Since then I have gone to KinetikChain for various ligament and muscular imbalance related injuries and I can’t recommend them enough. These are top-notch professionals in their field.
After a chronic plantar fasciitis injury lasting over six months, Dr. Ed Le Cara took on my case. We talked over different treatments and decided on a new technique. Initially, Dr. Le Cara injected my heel with a botulism treatment from Galderma called Dysport. The Dysport injection was coupled with dry needling and massage.
I walked into see Dr. Le Cara for the first time, almost hobbling in pain and perpetual discomfort. Not only did the pain hurt all day, every day; the pain affected my attitude and made me not any fun to be around. This single treatment allowed me to walk out of The Body Lounge with next to zero pain in one treatment.
I have been visiting Dr. Le Cara once a week for five weeks since the initial injection treatment where he continues the dry needling and massage. The chronic pain in my plantar area of my left foot has been eradicated. We are continuing to work on stretching the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles, strengthening the muscles in the plantar area as well as decreasing the painful adhesions in my calf.
Dr. Le Cara’s expertise in treatment as well as finding the root causes of my affliction and pain have allowed me to look forward to resuming my normal endurance training in the near future. There is no doubt Dr. Le Cara is a true expert in healing sports injury. If you want a doctor who can provide phenomenal results in curing pain and injury, get to Dr Ed Le Cara, quickly!
As an avid runner I had been battling severe plantar fasciitis for months. I saw several doctors and a PT and got zero results. A runner friend of mine referred me to Dr. Ed La Cara at The Body Lounge. He is amazing! After several weeks of treatments and his exercise routine, I’m back to running. I would highly recommend Dr. Ed La Cara for all of your sports-related injuries.
I have always heard positive things about Ed Le Cara, however, it wasn’t until I herniated a disk that I got to experience firsthand his knowledge and willingness to go above and beyond.
I spent 4 months seeing a Doctor, Chiropractor, and the staff at a local sport recovery center and was still experiencing pain in my lower back. I was doing stretches multiple times a day, I had removed all inflammatory floods from my diet and was still in constant pain.
I decided to do a free consolation with Ed. He immediately recognized my injury. He blew me away with how simple the diagnosis and treatment was. Using information that other professionals thought insignificant he found the problem and solution.
He gave me an in-depth diagnosis and a plan for the next few weeks. By the end of the month, I was back to doing CrossFit and weightlifting. I cannot thank Ed enough! Not only for helping me get back to gym but also putting up with my constant questions about exercises and movements.
Since then Ed is always the first person I call.
I also recommend his podcast called The Strength and Movement Podcast.
