Dischiavi

Dr. Steven Dischiavi is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at High Point University.  He is also the Director of Rehabilitation for the Department of Athletics at HPU. Dr. Dischiavi brings over 20 years of experience in sports medicine to Herman & Wallace, including 10 years with a professional sports team. Dr. Dischiavi served as the team physical therapist and certified assistant athletic trainer for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League from 2004 to 2014, where he gained a specialized treatment approach for the hip and pelvis, which is very applicable to the pelvic health practitioner.  His sports medicine approach to the pelvic floor and hip, combined with the innovative therapeutic exercises that target a global neuromotor movement pattern, will be something the pelvic health practitioner can immediately adopt into their clinical practice.  Dr. Dischiavi’s methods, although originally developed and designed in a sports medicine model, he takes tremendous pride helping pelvic health clinicians apply these methods across the life spans of our patients and clients.

He holds a relatively rare combination of credentials as a licensed physical therapist and a certified athletic trainer giving him a unique appreciation of the athlete. He also holds a manual therapy certification from the Ola Grimsby Institute.  He is board certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS).

Dr. Dischiavi is a faculty member at the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.  He has developed his own course that he presents nationally titled Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment of the Hip and Pelvis.

Dr. Dischiavi is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Ulster in Ireland under the direction of Dr. Chris Bleakley. His current research focus is on optimizing therapeutic exercises for the hip and pelvis to prevent lower extremity injuries and enhance physical performance.  

Dr. Dischiavi attended Slippery Rock University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He earned a Master of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University.
