Meet Your Director

Jason Carelis, PT, DPT

MY HOBBIES: Playing football, baseball, soccer and working on cars

Jason traces the origins of his future profession back to high school, when his grandparents underwent physical therapy and he witnessed the care they received firsthand. Having an affinity for the sciences and medicine, and being an athlete in his youth also piqued his interest in movement and exercise related to the human body. This eventually brought Jason to Eastern University, where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science/Biokinetics in 2008. He then continued his studies by earning a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Franklin Pierce University in 2012, where he did extensive research on vertigo/benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, and submitted his work to peer-reviewed publications.

Jason began working for Twin Boro Physical Therapy as a staff physical therapist at the Union office in 2012, where he gained extensive experience practicing manually-based therapy with an emphasis on functional rehabilitation. He moved to the Lincoln Park/Butler clinic the following year, and advanced to become the Clinical Director of the Lincoln Park location in 2018. Throughout his career, Jason has taken multiple courses through Great Lakes Seminars and attended the American Physical Therapy Association’s Combined Sections Meetings for many years. He has also taken several courses on the hand/wrist, knee pathologies, McKenzie Method, and neurological conditions.

Jason really enjoys working with a variety of patient populations, from pediatrics, to geriatrics, and high-level athletes, and has a special interest in treating joint replacement patients, post-operative patients, and those with balance disorders. He prioritizes making a connection with each patient and ensuring that they feel welcome every time they enter the door. Jason tries to look at the body as a whole when treating a specific problem area, and tries to identify any other components that may be contributing to a patient’s dysfunction. He utilizes a variety of interventions depending on the patient’s condition and abilities, but frequently uses joint mobilizations, soft-tissue mobilization, myofascial release, kinesotaping/McConnell Taping Techniques, and Muscle Energy Techniques. Above all else, Jason understands that recovery can take time, and wants to make sure each patient is getting the attention they deserve when under his care.

In every treatment program he runs, Jason implements Twin Boro’s One2FourTM Care Model to determine the “right level of healthcare” for each individual. This unique approach looks at the entire episode of care for the patient, which may start at a relatively low level of function and then progress them all the way to the peak performance required to return to their prior or preferred level of function. Jason sees this model as a wonderful way to directly show patients that what they are doing in physical therapy really is working. He believes it gives each patient tangible evidence that all their hard work is really going somewhere, and provides them with even more motivation to get back to doing what they love.

Twin Boro Lincoln Park is wonderful. Scheduling was easy and everyone very welcoming. Dr. Chris and the entire team is super knowledgeable and helpful. They shared in my happiness when my knee healed, avoiding surgery! Thank you, guys!

Everyone at TwinBoro couldn't be nicer or more supportive! They worked with me everyday to get my strength back so I can get into the gym. I worked 1-on-1 with Chris and he was very helpful, always explained the exercises and watched over me to ensure proper form. Although rehab is not the most enjoyable, the therapists and stuff made me look forward to coming in. I started at FOUR3 and ultimately made the switch when I felt like I was not being progressed or pushed, it did not feel personalized to my previous strength and abilities. Unlike FOUR3, TwinBoro did not want to keep me there forever.

My son sustained a serious elbow and nerve injury back in June. I was recommended to Twin Borough physical therapy for his care and I could not be happier that I was. We have worked with both Derek and Chris and both of them have been phenomenal!! My son's progress has been astounding. His surgeon was even impressed with his ability level. They have certainly helped improve immensely as well as explaining the exercises and what purpose they had in his healing. I cannot say enough about how genuinely pleased I am with them and would highly recommend them.

The staff at Twin Boro is wonderful!Chris, Derek and Dan are extremely knowledgeable, supportive, professional, and patient. I mostly worked with Chris, who is truly so dedicated and passionate about his work and getting his patients feeling better as soon as possible. He prioritizes making his patients feel comfortable and taken care of, and he does a great job guiding you through your treatment plan. Dan, the pt tech, also did a wonderful job guiding, supporting and engaging with each patient. Don’t bother slacking on your exercises because they will catch you right away haha! Overall a very welcoming, warm and fun environment. Would highly recommend this place!!

The therapists and aides at TwinBoro in LP really help provide a focused and fun environment. I appreciate how Derek has explained everything to me in terms I can understand, and also focuses on ensuring that the aide is deepening his understanding. They make you work hard and it's totally worth it.

I was treated at the Lincoln Park location for knee pain from a sport related injury. As soon as I walked in, all staff , front desk and physical therapists, were very welcoming and made me feel very taken care of. They explained the plan for my treatment and kept me in the loop of everything that they were doing to me as well as what the exercises were doing. I followed the schedule as the physical therapists told me and within no time my knee had improved tremendously. Chris and Derek are very educated physical therapists who know what they are doing and I definitely will recommend this to family and friends and will be coming back in the future if needed.

I decided to seek physical therapy after experiencing back pain for more than a year and a half. Walked into this facility hoping to get some relief. I was impressed by the first visit. My assessment was super detailed. Dr. Chris is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and patient person. He was a great listener for all my pain points and symptoms and developed a very thorough program for me to follow. The best part was providing me enough challenges to keep me stronger but also realizing when to hold off, or take a break if my pain was recurring. I am still a regular patient at this facility and am getting stronger by the day. Him and Dan have enabled me to run my program quite independently gently giving me reminders if my form is off. They’re always watching even when you think they’re not. There’s no room to slack off. I’m so happy with my progress so far and feel liberated to a great degree since my back is getting so much better. I highly recommend this facility to anyone who is in pain and is looking to get better and stronger.

I have been going to Twin Boro Physical Therapy in Lincoln Park for 10 weeks . Chris is my Physical Therapist I can’t say enough how wonderful he is working with me ! I had a knee replacement surgery back in September . From day one Chris was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable treating me ! He treats everyone as a Individual and if we have any health issues which I do I have fibromyalgia for almost 11 years . So that makes me very sensitive to pain .He works around my fibromyalgia pain & if I tell him I am having a bad day from my fibromyalgia he will take that into account and switch around my exercises for that day , He is very caring and really goes out of his way to treat all his patients and make them feel comfortable. He makes all of his patience a priority and does whatever it takes to get us back to feeling great ! I went to another Physical Therapy place a couple years ago in a different town and they were nowhere near as thorough and helpful as Twin Boro physical therapy . Kyle also works with me too answering my questions & helping me when Chris is busy with someone else . I will have to have another knee replacement surgery on my right knee and when I do I am definitely will be going back toTwin Boro and work with Chris again he is the best ! I can’t be happier how much Chris has helped me to recover from my surgery !

I have been working with Dr. Chris to strengthen my ankle and achilles tendon after a long struggle with Achilles Tendonopathy.

I'm very happy with the work and enthusiasm he and Dan his PT therapist have employed to get me back up and running.

I had an AMAZING experience here at Twinboro! First off it is impossible not to walk in without a smile after being greeted by the happiest and most outgoing office coordinator in the planet (Shannon). She is on top of everything from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. Next, I was treated by Jason the head physical therapist. Let me tell you something this man knows his stuff. After a dislocated left shoulder and a torn right peck tendon Jason took his time to get me right and back to work. The guy is a master at his craft! Their assistant who attended me alongside Jason, Jamie is a sweet heart with the perfect balance of tough love and gentle bedside manner. Needless to say my experience with twinboro and their extraordinary staff was remarkable! Highly highly recommend this physical therapy outfit.

I had been a patient at Twin Boro in the past and when I injured my arm at work, I knew I could rely on the incredibly helpful, friendly staff and knowledgeable Therapists at the Lincoln Park location. All in all, it was a great experience and I highly recommend this location. Shannon, the Office Manager is very professional and personable and took care of everything so I only had to concentrate on one thing.... getting better. Thanks to all of you for doing such a great job. I hope I don’t get hurt ever again but if I do, there’s no doubt I’ll be back at Twin Boro Lincoln Park.

I decided to go to TwinBoro Physical Therapy in Lincoln Park because a few years earlier my wife was treated there for a frozen shoulder with good results. Due to a previous job I was being treated at TwinBoro for a chronic posture problem. I was also suffering from back spasms. My therapist was Lauren Pondelick and she was a pleasure to work with. She is very knowledgeable and is very concerned with any pain you may be having during treatments or home exercises that are part of your treatment. My back spasms did disappear and my posture is something I have to work on on my own now. I recommend Lauren and the rest of the staff at TwinBoro who made each visit to their facility enjoyable.
Randi Rogers
00:36 27 Mar 21
I have been going here for about 4 months and they have been amazing since the moment I walked in. Shannon is so helpful with all my scheduling and billing questions and did it with a smile on her face and enthusiastically. Jamie is also an amazing help! She helped me with all my exercises each time and making sure my pain level was low. Lastly, the PT, Jason was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what to do to help with my pain levels and reason for being there. I recommend Twinboro Lincoln Park for anyone needing PT. Every time I went it was 5 stars!

Twin Boro of Lincoln Park provided the necessary help and information for me to get my sore shoulder back to normal.I worked with both Rina and Jason who provided me with the knowledge of why I had the soreness and showed me exercises to stabilize the area and then eventually strengthen it.It is important to learn the proper way to do the exercises and even more important to continue doing them once you “graduate” from Twin Boro.I would recommend Twin Boro to anyone in the need for PT. Give Shannon a call - she’ll be happy to schedule a consultation with one of the therapist for you!
