Nathan Schilaty, DC, PhD is the Lincoln Endowed Chair of Chiropractic & Biomechanics Research, Director of the Center for Neuromusculoskeletal Research, and Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and Medical Engineering at the University of South Florida. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree from Parker University in January 2007 and operated a private practice for five years in Loveland, CO. During that time, while also teaching Anatomy & Physiology at Front Range Community College, he continuously asked questions about how treatments worked on a neuromusculoskeletal level. Consequently, he enrolled in a Neuroscience program and received his PhD degree in 2014. He received postdoctoral research training at the Ohio State University and Mayo Clinic with emphases on sports medicine, biomechanics, and neuromechanics. While at Mayo Clinic, he became an Assistant Professor of Physiology, Orthopedics, and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. His research included NIH-funded and mentored training via T32, LRP, and K12 mechanisms. He continues his innovative research of human motion and neural control at the University of South Florida with funded research by the NIH, industry, and foundations. His interests primarily focus on injury prevention and improved rehabilitation of concussion, neck, lower back, and knee-related issues. He is passionate about research and increasing the research footprint of chiropractic worldwide.
