OSU Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation, OSU Campus
Stephanie Di Stasi, PhD, PT, joined The Ohio State University Sports Medicine in July 2011. Her dissertation work used clinical examinations and biomechanical testing to quantify the recovery of function in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-injured athletes after neuromuscular training and ACL reconstruction.
Dr. Di Stasi works as a post-doctoral research associate with Dr. Timothy Hewett, developing and validating effective rehabilitation programs and return to sport guidelines for active individuals. Her primary area of study is focused on athletes who have sustained ACL injuries and active individuals who suffer with painful femoral acetabular impingement (FAI). Dr. Di Stasi’s work on FAI is currently funded by the Sports Physical Therapy Section of the American Physical Therapy Association.
Dr. Di Stasi has been treating athletes at all levels of competition since 2003, and received her specialist certification in orthopaedics from the American Physical Therapy Association in June 2010. She continues her clinical work part-time at the OSU campus, treating a variety of patients with sports and orthopaedic pathologies.
