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.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Lab sessions will give the clinicians an opportunity to perceive human movement through a unique lens of global complexity in a simplified approach. External manual therapy techniques will be instructed. In addition, the course is highlighted with high-quality videos capturing athletes of all levels, particularly professional athletes with whom the instructor has worked.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    3. Utilize an evidence-based approach to correctly identify SI joint pain and distinguish it from lumbar or hip dysfunction.
    4. Practice brand new evidence-based approaches for evaluating the hip in a comprehensive three-dimensional method specific to the athletic population.
    5. Provide non-internal manual therapy techniques to influence the performance of the pelvic floor focusing on both the experienced clinician and pelvic floor early learners.
    6. Utilize a comprehensive paradigm of exercise theory, development, implementation and progressions for a variety of pathologies, such as; pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, femoroacetabular syndrome and a host of soft tissue injuries such as groin strains and proximal hamstring strains.
    7. Provide strategies for clinicians to determine when your patient would be better served with a referral to a pelvic health practitioner and what the current evidence is to support your decision.
    8. Create innovative and engaging therapeutic exercise programs (home exercise programs too!) for your patients directed at the pelvis with specific attention to upright and functional positioning.

This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Lab sessions will give the clinicians an opportunity to perceive human movement through a unique lens of global complexity in a simplified approach. External manual therapy techniques will be instructed. In addition, the course is highlighted with high-quality videos capturing athletes of all levels, particularly professional athletes with whom the instructor has worked.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    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.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    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.

    This course is an online option while we stay safe during the COVID19 outbreak. It will be held via Zoom meeting, which is free to download, and will combine prerecorded lecture with live, interactive course time that takes place via online meeting.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Participants in this course will be sent several prerecorded lectuers to view before the course, and the interactive Zoom meeting will focus on exercise videos and follow-along exercises led by the instructor, followed by question and answer after each exercise is instructed. Participants will want adequate space to perform exercises while following along on the screen.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises.

Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    Needed Supplies

    This remote course will include exercises led by the instructor on a Zoom meeting. In order to fully follow along, participants will need to make an exercise system which consists of: an 8-foot yoga strap with a D-ring on the end, and 8-feet of theratubing (red, blue or green will work, choose a challenging color that will not be too challenging for two days of exercise). Participants will need to anchor their bands to something that won’t move, like a door jam. Theraband may work as a substitute, but theratubing is recommended. In addition, participants will need: a yoga block and a small step or box to use for a step up exercise, and a couch cushion or something that will work like an Airex pad on which to kneel. If possible, exercising in front of a mirror in addition to the computer screen will be helpful.

    Price: $425
    Experience Level: Beginner
    Contact Hours: 14

    This course is an online option while we stay safe during the COVID19 outbreak. It will be held via Zoom meeting, which is free to download, and will combine prerecorded lecture with live, interactive course time that takes place via online meeting.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Participants in this course will be sent several prerecorded lectuers to view before the course, and the interactive Zoom meeting will focus on exercise videos and follow-along exercises led by the instructor, followed by question and answer after each exercise is instructed. Participants will want adequate space to perform exercises while following along on the screen.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    Needed Supplies

    This remote course will include exercises led by the instructor on a Zoom meeting. In order to fully follow along, participants will need to make an exercise system which consists of: an 8-foot yoga strap with a D-ring on the end, and 8-feet of theratubing (red, blue or green will work, choose a challenging color that will not be too challenging for two days of exercise). Participants will need to anchor their bands to something that won’t move, like a door jam. Theraband may work as a substitute, but theratubing is recommended. In addition, participants will need: a yoga block and a small step or box to use for a step up exercise, and a couch cushion or something that will work like an Airex pad on which to kneel. If possible, exercising in front of a mirror in addition to the computer screen will be helpful.

    In Biomechanical Assessment of the Hip & Pelvis, the participant will learn to apply foundational and high-level principles of sports medicine to rehabilitation, evaluation, and treatment approaches. These principles apply not only to competitive athletes, but also across the life span of the active patient who can benefit from detailed biomechanical and movement analysis. This two-day orthopedic course is designed to elevate the participant’s skill level through advanced training in hip and pelvic biomechanics, functional kinetic chain “slings” created by the muscular system in series, and through use of sports medicine theory and applied science.

    Participants will learn a system for application of detailed evaluation techniques utilizing video assisted observation, assessment of joint mechanics, and functional kinematic evaluation. Excellent videos of patients performing a variety of skills are provided for case examples. Abundant lab opportunities will focus on video analysis, kinesiology concepts, movement analysis, joint-specific assessment, "Manual Movement Therapy," and exercise prescription. Within this functional and specific assessment approach, therapists will be able to identify pathomechanics of the hip and pelvic complex. Also included in this continuing education course is a method for evaluating and addressing dysfunction in the muscular dynamic kinetic chain sling system; biomechanical assessment and therapeutic intervention will consider the myofascial sling as it relates to optimal performance and to functional total limb movement.

    Specific dysfunctions will be discussed in this biomechanics course including hip dysfunction such as femoroacetabular impingement, or FAI, sports hernia or athletic pubalgia, and labral tears. There will also be an emphasis on how the hip and pelvis is a crucial component to successfully conquering patellofemoral dysfunctions. Procedural interventions will be discussed including hip arthroscopy and athletic pubalgia (sports hernia) repairs. Towards rehabilitation of these dysfunctions, the therapist will learn very specific therapeutic exercises, functional movement retraining, and current hip rehabilitation approaches. Come and learn about applied theories of "Pelvic Balancing" and "Manual Movement Therapy." The instructor's extensive experience in working with professional athletes is shared and concepts learned in the class can be immediately applied in the clinic with high-level athletes as well as patients who have any type of movement dysfunction of the pelvic-hip complex. This is a dynamic non-conventional sports medicine approach to biomechanical analysis. Physical therapists are being challenged by ancillary professions such as personal trainers, muscle activation therapists (MAT), and performance specialists all who are using different styles of movement analysis and screening. This course will focus on developing the clinician’s skill set with regard to movement analysis and ultimately functional performance either in sport or ADLs!  This is not a course for just athletes, you’ll be amazed at the applications to children and our geriatric clients.  Human movement is universal, how we use that movement varies throughout the life span.  This course is targeted to the sports medicine practitioner in the outpatient clinic as much as it is to the pelvic health practitioner who doesn’t treat any athletes.  The exercises will be applicable to all groups at all levels, you will have fun as Dr. Dischiavi challenges your traditional mindset with some unique ways at looking at human movement.

    In Biomechanical Assessment of the Hip & Pelvis, the participant will learn to apply foundational and high-level principles of sports medicine to rehabilitation, evaluation, and treatment approaches. These principles apply not only to competitive athletes, but also across the life span of the active patient who can benefit from detailed biomechanical and movement analysis. This two-day orthopedic course is designed to elevate the participant’s skill level through advanced training in hip and pelvic biomechanics, functional kinetic chain “slings” created by the muscular system in series, and through use of sports medicine theory and applied science.

    Participants will learn a system for application of detailed evaluation techniques utilizing video assisted observation, assessment of joint mechanics, and functional kinematic evaluation. Excellent videos of patients performing a variety of skills are provided for case examples. Abundant lab opportunities will focus on video analysis, kinesiology concepts, movement analysis, joint-specific assessment, "Manual Movement Therapy," and exercise prescription. Within this functional and specific assessment approach, therapists will be able to identify pathomechanics of the hip and pelvic complex. Also included in this continuing education course is a method for evaluating and addressing dysfunction in the muscular dynamic kinetic chain sling system; biomechanical assessment and therapeutic intervention will consider the myofascial sling as it relates to optimal performance and to functional total limb movement.

    Specific dysfunctions will be discussed in this biomechanics course including hip dysfunction such as femoroacetabular impingement, or FAI, sports hernia or athletic pubalgia, and labral tears. There will also be an emphasis on how the hip and pelvis is a crucial component to successfully conquering patellofemoral dysfunctions. Procedural interventions will be discussed including hip arthroscopy and athletic pubalgia (sports hernia) repairs. Towards rehabilitation of these dysfunctions, the therapist will learn very specific therapeutic exercises, functional movement retraining, and current hip rehabilitation approaches. Come and learn about applied theories of "Pelvic Balancing" and "Manual Movement Therapy." The instructor's extensive experience in working with professional athletes is shared and concepts learned in the class can be immediately applied in the clinic with high-level athletes as well as patients who have any type of movement dysfunction of the pelvic-hip complex. This is a dynamic non-conventional sports medicine approach to biomechanical analysis. Physical therapists are being challenged by ancillary professions such as personal trainers, muscle activation therapists (MAT), and performance specialists all who are using different styles of movement analysis and screening. This course will focus on developing the clinician’s skill set with regard to movement analysis and ultimately functional performance either in sport or ADLs!  This is not a course for just athletes, you’ll be amazed at the applications to children and our geriatric clients.  Human movement is universal, how we use that movement varies throughout the life span.  This course is targeted to the sports medicine practitioner in the outpatient clinic as much as it is to the pelvic health practitioner who doesn’t treat any athletes.  The exercises will be applicable to all groups at all levels, you will have fun as Dr. Dischiavi challenges your traditional mindset with some unique ways at looking at human movement.

    Steve Dischiavi, PT, MPT, DPT, SCS, ATC, COMT

    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.
