Our Team

Justin Nessel, DPT, CSCS, Physical Therapist • Center Manager

Justin leads our Stuart, Florida clinic!

Justin graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Human Performance. He used his education to serve others here on the Treasure Coast by becoming a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and working as a personal trainer for a hospital-based wellness center. He was fortunate enough to work with people as young as age 7 and as old as 98 whether they were athletes, managing chronic ailments, or just looking to improve their fitness. After working in that field for several years, Justin decided to further his education by returning to FGCU to obtain a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, which he completed in May 2020. During his education he completed clinical rotations that provided him with experience in treating patients recovering from a wide range of issues, whether they were sidelined by a sprained ankle, recovering from a stroke, or had just had a surgery. He recently spent two months in Denver working with firefighters to assist with the training of new recruits and the treatment of department veterans.

Justin is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and the Florida Physical Therapy Association.

As a student he was involved in volunteer coordination of his peers for numerous organizations and events on the west coast of Florida, including occasional work for the Special Olympics Florida.

As a Stuart native he is eager to get involved with the community now that he has moved home. Justin is passionate about educating his patients and developing an individualized plan of care to meet their needs. He focuses on promoting independence and accountability to help his patients take control of their recovery and reach their goals.
