Dr. Donna Weigle, Chiropractor
Dr. Donna Weigle is a Florida native and was born in Ocala.
While living in Ocala, she began playing baseball with the boys at the age of 5. Then, at the age of 7, her family made the move to Citrus County and she switched to softball. From then on, she was fiercely involved and devoted to the sport, playing little league, travel ball, and her high school’s varsity team all at once which eventually wore on her shoulder. After seeing multiple doctors and being prescribed various medications for pain, one of her teammate’s moms referred her to her chiropractor. She had never been to a chiropractor before so she was a little skeptical at first but after she began to get pain relief and her throwing velocity and accuracy started to restore, she became a believer. More importantly, to her, she was able to continue playing the sport she loved most. Little did she know that this experience would change the course of her life.
After graduating high school, she made the move to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida (UCF) where she received her Bachelor of Science degree. With no break, she moved to Port Orange and attended Palmer College of Chiropractic where she graduated in the top 5 of her class and received the Academic Excellence Award. A few months later, she moved back to Citrus County where she practiced for 3 years.
She continued to be actively involved in softball all through her time at UCF and Palmer but eventually had to have two shoulder surgeries in 2017 and 2018. She continues to be grateful for chiropractic allowing her to play nearly pain-free for so many years. In addition to chiropractic helping with her shoulder, it was very beneficial for severe headaches as well due to her having a Chiari Malformation.
After recovering from both shoulder surgeries, she slowly became involved in slowpitch softball which is where she met her now husband, David. They got married in November 2020. She has four step-children – Olivia, Savannah, Jazmine, and David. They have two horses (Sonny and Hank), three goats (Atlas, Athena, and Kid), three dogs (Rocky, Xena, and Kushy), and one cat (Chi Chi). They enjoy softball, fishing, kayaking, bowling, golfing, camping, and watching football together.
