Kramer Jakubek, PT, DPT, CSCS
Mahwah Clinic Director
NJ PT License # 40QA01527800
Kramer earned his Doctorate in Physical Therapy with honors from Ithaca College, where he attended their accelerated six year program, minoring in Sport and Exercise Psychology. While at Ithaca, he was a two sport athlete as a high jumper on the track and field team, and a sprinter on the swim team, where he earned all-state and all-conference accolades.
Kramer developed his interest in the Physical Therapy field as a result of extensive experience as a patient in PT clinics, due to the injuries he sustained while participating in various land and water sports. After being accepted into the renowned Ithaca College Physical Therapy program out of high school, he knew he found the perfect career to fit to his active lifestyle!
As a clinician, Kramer has a passion for treating sport/exercise-related injuries, post-operative diagnoses, and injury prevention – particularly concerning the ACL. His clinical experience ranges from working with college and professional athletes, to pediatric and geriatric populations in the outpatient orthopedic settings. By combining manual therapy skills, injury prevention, and current evidence-based research, Kramer’s patients can expect to receive the care that will allow them to best achieve their functional goals.
While in college, Kramer developed a passion for playing golf that has carried over to his career, as he has pursued and earned a certification from the Titleist Performance Institute as a Level 2 Medical Professional - where he utilizes the Body-Swing ConnectionTM to get his golfers back on the course. He also became certified in the Functional Movement Screen and Selective Functional Movement Assessment, as he believes in treating patients utilizing a “total body approach” to help them return to their healthy, fast-paced lifestyle. As an NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning specialist, he uses his background in strength and conditioning to help his patients achieve their maximum potential.
In his free time, Kramer enjoys playing painfully mediocre golf, participating in weekend flag football where he regularly injures himself, self-rehabbing those injuries during the week, hiking, going to concerts, playing guitar, exercising, and traveling with his wife.
