Time for another local business shout out.  This time I’ll be featuring KinetikChain Denver and Dr. Ed Le Cara. Recently I had the opportunity to visit with Dr. Le Cara and his facility located at 3595 Wynkoop Street.  The office is located about 1/2 a mile from CrossFit Verve.    

I made an appointment with Dr. Le Cara three weeks ago because I was having some low back issues and I wanted him to take a look and see if anything looked out of place.  He was traveling out of the country so I made the appointment for the first day he was back.  I had first heard about Dr. Le Cara from Courtney and then from an athlete at Verve that had glowing reviews of the time he’d spent with Dr. Le Cara.  When I went in this past week, my back issues had gone and I actually felt pretty good.  

I told Dr. Le Cara that I was feeling much better and that my back wasn’t giving me any problems.  Knowing this, Dr. Le Cara put me through in initial screen to check for any imbalances and see if he could find anything that looked a little off.  My left shoulder has always given me issues in certain positions and during the screen Dr. Le Cara noticed that I was tight on my left side.  He wrote down all the things he noticed during the screen and then one by one went through each of the issues and addressed them for me.  He showed me a few at home exercises that I could do that would help with the tightness.  I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Le Cara and will continue to see him for monthly check ins and maintenance.  His facility also has compression boots and other pieces of equipment that can help with recovery.  

Given that the Open is around the corner and we want to be at our best, I wanted to meet with Dr. Le Cara so that I could then in good judgement recommend him and his facility.  I highly recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Le Cara if you have any lingering issues or just want to have a screen done that may reveal any issues that you weren’t aware of.  His website and online scheduling are available HERE.  We also have his card at the front desk with all his contact information.  

Below is a little information about Dr. Le Cara as far as his experience and education.

Experience: I have over 16 years experience of successfully treating musculoskeletal injuries for a variety of different types of athletes and patients. I held a hospital appointment at the Veteran’s Administration, Northern California Health Care System in their Brain Health and Wellness Program alongside neurologists, physiatrists, physical therapists, and psychologists while providing treatment for my fellow Veteran’s. I have been the Head Athletic Trainer for various Professional, Collegiate, High School, and Youth Organizations including the San Jose Stealth of the National Lacrosse League. I proudly served in the US Army as a Combat Medic. I was the VP of Sports Science and Human Performance at 24Hour Fitness at their corporate headquarters where they built me a clinic to serve their executives, employees and families. Many health and fitness companies consult with me to develop education around their products. Some of those companies are RockTape, Stroops, OptoGait, and TRX training, just to name a few.

Education: I earned a PhD in Athletic Training and had original research published in a peer reviewed journal on the topic of motor control of the lumbar spine. I am regularly published in trade journals around the topic of corrective exercise and movement assessment. I am Board Certified in both Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. I hold a clinical Doctorate of Chiropractic which allows me to diagnose conditions and refer for lab work and diagnostic imaging (like x-ray and MRI’s). I hold a Master’s in Business Administration with an emphasis in Transglobal education. My undergraduate degree is in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Exercise Physiology.
