Owner’s Bio/Meet your Therapist Page
Dr. Jeff Weisler is a native of North Carolina. He is originally from Raleigh, but from an early age Jeff has enjoyed life on the South End of Wrightsville Beach. His hobbies include surfing, paddle boarding, hiking, and boating to neighboring islands and sandbars with his family and friends, plus his dog and first mate Shelly.
Dr. Weisler graduated from UNCW with a BA in Psychology and later received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Elon University.
Immediately after graduation, Dr. Weisler worked in Raleigh in an outpatient land and aquatic PT clinic to gain additional expertise and became certified by ATRI (Aquatic Therapy and Rehabilitation Industry). Returning to Wilmington, Dr. Weisler enjoyed working with his patients at two different short term rehabilitation facilities.
During this time it became apparent how much Dr. Weisler genuinely loved working with older adults-valuing their life lessons and experience and enjoying their sense of humor. He noticed just how many seniors reported feeling increasingly unsteady on their feet and experiencing greater difficulty getting around; they acknowledged gradually becoming very sedentary which obviously led to significant functional decline. Many reported suffering falls and fracturing bones, but Dr. Weisler was most deeply impacted by several patients recounting falls where they had remained on the floor for a couple days before being discovered and transported to the hospital; some even required surgery before being discharged to a skilled nursing facility. Dr. Weisler knew that many of these instances could have been avoided had these individuals received physical therapy and special preventative care and education in their homes sooner. Therefore, seeking to address these needs Dr. Weisler founded Wrightsville Beach Physical Therapy in 2017 and was pleased to be able to bring to the Wilmington area the 100% personalized physical therapy experience that our concierge style practice provides.
