Throughout his training, Dr. Kareha developed a love for helping people with back & neck pain, TMJ pain, and chronic pain after noticing that people who experience pain frequently missed out on receiving the care they deserve. He is passionate about helping his patients improve their quality of lives. He graduated from Gettysburg College with a Bachelor’s degree in Health and Exercise Sciences with an emphasis in Athletic Training. He received a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Arcadia University and then completed his postgraduate training at Allied Services in Scranton, PA with an emphasis on back and neck injuries and vertigo. He then earned a PhD in Physical Therapy at Nova Southeastern University and is Board-Certified in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy and a Fellow of the Academy of Spine Physical Therapy. Dr. Kareha is Director of Professional Development for Physical Therapy at St. Luke’s, and is Director of both the Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency and Spine Physical Therapy Fellowship at St. Luke’s University Health Network.
