Dr. Claire Haeptle
PT, DPT, CSCS
Hi I’m Dr. Claire Haeuptle (pronounced high-PLEE)! Thank you for visiting Perform Physical Therapy and Wellness, a comprehensive resource service for people looking to perform at an optimum level every day.
As a skilled physical therapist and certified strength and conditioning specialist, I’ve worked with a variety of individuals with active lifestyles and athletes with a range of needs. Despite their differences, they have in common the desire to become a stronger, better version of themselves.
Is that you? If so, you’re in the right place! Did you know that the body has an instinctive need to heal itself? It just needs guidance on how to get there. That’s where I come in. Since 2018 I’ve specialized in orthopedic and sports physical therapy for overall wellness, prevention and rehab injuries as well as strengthening and maintaining optimal health.
My own experience as a college-level athlete with 5 knee injuries developed into an enthusiasm and passion for working with others to heal their bodies in a way that fulfills their preferred lifestyle. It also allows me to empathize with patients to meet them where they’re at—whether they’re playing competitively on club teams, in high school or college, are elite-level athletes or simply just trying to get or stay fit.
I have the patience and desire to answer questions with time intentionally built into sessions to better understand patient goals. I also focus on education to explain why we’re doing what we’re doing and how it contributes to the process of growth and healing.
Lastly, I understand that therapy goes beyond the physical body and extends to our mental, emotional and physiological functions. It’s not uncommon for patients to experience a response release during sessions and I encourage everyone to feel unrestricted in this area, it will influence your overall wellness.

Dr. Trevor Weinstock
Dr. Trevor Weinstock joined Perform Physical Therapy and Wellness as a physical therapist in 2021, specializing in treating nerve pain, spinal and hip injuries. His favorite aspect of the work he performs is having the privilege of meeting new clients and learning about their lived experience through open conversations.
As a collegiate inline hockey athlete, Dr. Weinstock succumbed to multiple hip and wrist surgeries, which fueled his passion to help others recover and demonstrate the most effective way to heal their bodies and get them back to doing what they love.
A catalyst that led to his career in physical therapy was his Type 1 diabetes diagnosis at age 2, which is why his No. 1 goal is showing compassion to each individual. Living with this condition offers him a unique perspective when connecting with others who have either a Type 1 or 2 diagnosis and has allowed him to use a more holistic approach when it comes to working with patients.
Dr. Trevor Weinstock graduated with a degree in Kinesiology from Arizona State University in 2018, then moved to San Diego where he received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences. Outside of the office, Dr. Weinstock spends the majority of his time enjoying America’s Finest City surfing, playing beach volleyball and exercising outdoors.

Josh Bowes is a Certified Nutritionist, Tactile Specialist and Personal Trainer who guides men and women in their 20s through late 40s who are either starting a healthy and active lifestyle or are already an athlete but need guidance to create and maintain body composition.
Very simply, I function as a guide to encourage healthy eating habits and making better choices through flexible, efficient and effective virtual coaching sessions. In my role I am an accountability coach, collaborating with clients to create or maintain their ideal body composition with a focus on whole food education.
As a former Special Ops member in the Navy, nutrition has been of special interest to me as an ultimate way to fuel my body during grueling physical training. As I learned about the role it played in my life, I noticed its importance in my ongoing physical performance and overall wellness.
Healthy eating is a lifestyle and therefore a process that takes time to cultivate. Despite where I am today in my own nutritional journey, I can relate to clients who may be just starting theirs. Growing up I was overweight because I didn’t pay attention to what I was consuming, which is why I’m so conscious about what I’m putting into my body and how I can provide that insight to you.
I’m passionate about educating others on the importance of preparing and consuming healthy ingredients. I love the process and purpose of cooking and being able to share that so people can learn how to create and enjoy what’s healthy as something they can take pride and ownership in. Being self-reliant when it comes to nutrition is one of the biggest gifts you can give to yourself. There’s no greater reward than watching someone finish the program and reach
their personal body composition goals.
