Caroline then went on to earn a doctor of physical therapy degree from Slippery Rock University, which is where she first came in contact with JointCare. She had the opportunity to spend time in both the Florham Park and the Denville offices, and was immediately impressed by the inviting atmosphere of the clinic, the staff’s dedication to delivering the highest caliber of patient care, and the patients’ affinity for the one-on-one care provided. Upon graduation, Caroline interviewed with and received job offers from several other companies, but when the opportunity arose to join the team at JointCare, it was an easy decision. Caroline is pursuing advanced credentialing inmanual therapy. Her mission as a physical therapist is to optimize each patient’s physical therapy experience by utilizing a hands-on approach in combination with a strong bedsidemanner to develop a trusting relationship between patient and therapist.

earned a B.S. in Nutritional Sciences with a concentration in Dietetics. Since then, he has gone on to obtain the credential of DTR (Dietetics Technician Registered) with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as well as their certificate in Adult Weight Management. Through years of wrestling, he found himself in need of physical rehabilitation and fell in love with the profession so he returned to Rutgers where he earned his Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Aaron began his career as a physical therapist with the Veteran’s Administration. It was here that he felt a strong connection to the community and personal desire to give back, being that many of his family members are veterans themselves or currently serving active duty. Not only was he given the opportunity to help veterans but he was fortunate enough to be able to see patients through the entire episode of care, from immediately after surgery until discharge fromoutpatient care. This is an experience that he truly values and feels has made him a more versatile therapist. Aaron’s first encounter with JointCare was with the Florham Park office where he was impressed with the warm, positive environment and personalized care they provided. However, it was the commitment to clinical excellence and attention to detail that won him over and as soon as an opportunity became available, he made it clear that he was on board. Aaron is dedicated to a well-rounded health care approach, he is currently pursuing amanual physical therapy certification and working towards creating a nutrition program that can be offered to JointCare patients.
Caroline Schmitt Born and raised in Parsippany, NJ, Caroline was driven to a career in the healthcare industry.

Caroline earned a B.S. in exercise science at Grove City College, where she had the opportunity to work alongside the head athletic trainer during football season. She gained a greater appreciation for the entire rehabilitation process here, as she assisted in providing care for athletes at the time of an injury on the field, all the way to the athletes’ return to play, days, weeks, or even months later. Caroline’s interest in orthopedics peaked during this time through the countless conversations she had with injured athletes on the sidelines about the highs and lows of their journeys through rehab.
