Jacob Schweiger, DPT joined the Pivot Physical Therapy team in Montrose as a staff physical therapist in March of 2021. He has always had a strong interest in working with geriatric populations and through his clinical experiences in school also developed interests in vestibular rehabilitation. In school, Jacob participated in research investigating “How the Chronic Exposure to Low Temperatures May Explain Painful Soft Tissue Disorders.” Following his interest in geriatrics, Jacob spent his first year out of school employed as a staff physical therapist in a skilled nursing facility in Wilkes-Barre.
Jacob graduated with a BA in Philosophy in 2016 and a DPT from Misericordia University in 2019. During his schooling, Jacob participated in a clinical experience with Pivot that led to his desire to join the Pivot team when he saw the opportunity. In the future, he hopes to pursue further education regarding both geriatrics and vestibular rehabilitation to gain skills he can utilize in the outpatient setting.
When he is not at work, Jacob is an avid reader and enjoys working on his own writing as well. Jacob lives on a lake outside of Nicholson, PA where he enjoys fishing, gardening, and spending time with his loving wife and their cat.
