Dr. Claire Haeuptle PT, DPT, CSCS


Dr. Claire Haeuptle has 4 years of experience providing out-patient orthopedic and sports physical therapy in San Diego. 


She recently left managing a sports rehabilitation clinic to open her own practice to provide one-on-one physical therapy in the gym setting. 

Claire played competitive sports her entire life and played basketball at the collegiate level. Unfortunately, Claire suffered multiple knee injuries early on in her career, leading to a total of 4 knee surgeries by the age of 20. Claire became a physical therapist because she wanted to prevent athletes from experiencing the consistent injuries that left her sidelined for so long. 

Claire combines her own experience as an athlete/patient, her doctorate degree, and strength and conditioning certification to provide the best return to sport and injury prevention care possible.
