I've been going to Release for 2 years and Cari and Virginia have been there through back, arm, and major foot injuries. I'm not sure what I would do without them! Through thick and thin, they've kept me moving. Unlike other practices I've been to, they give you individualized attention (no assembly lines...), and use state-of-the-art techniques that nobody else in DC is using. Although I pay a small amount out of pocket (my insurance pays the rest), it is worth absolutely every penny.Original recommendation
I happen to be a member of Equinox, the gym where Release is located. However, for those who aren't members, you can go to Release and use all the facilities for free. It's a really nice perk for those non-members. Plus, you can get your parking validated. It can't get any more convenient for downtown DC!
After 2 years, I'm still a devotee of Cari's. She helped me through a serious injury and get from a wheelchair, back to full mobility as quick as humanly possible. I was fortunate enough to benefit from a new laser technology she's using called K-Laser, which helps regenerate soft tissue growth. This helped me heal much faster from my injury so I could get walking and back to work. Whatever ails you, she's always got a solution!Original recommendation
I agree with all of the postings about how much of a "miracle worker" Dr. Cari Simon is. And I also wanted to add five stars for Dr. Virginia Dula, who also works with Cari. She has a firm hand with her treatment and I've also seen her work individually with athletes to teach them stretches and other movements in order to prevent having them come back a second time. I've gone to Release for trouble with everything from shin splints to back pain, and they are my first go-to instead of trying to lather up with creams like Ben Gay or back-pain heating pads.Original recommendation
Cari is unbelievably talented at what she does. She fixed an issue I have had with my knees since childhood. In addition to her incredible skills as a physical therapist, she is friendly, warm, and welcoming. I cannot recommend her highly enough and if there was a 10 star rating - she would receive it from me!Original recommendation
Cari is incredible! After two years of lower back pain and numerous therapists, Cari has been the first one to make me feel better. She is professional and extremely knowledgeable in her field. I couldn't recommend her more highlyOriginal recommendation
