Scott Pape, DPT —
Scott’s first exposure to the field of Physical Therapy came while he was still in high school in Western Pennsylvania, when his mother was prescribed PT treatments for a frozen shoulder that she had been experiencing. Being a healthcare provider herself, she encouraged him to explore this growing profession which would allow him to marry his love for athletics with his desire to help individuals improve upon their quality of life.
He attended Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA, receiving his BS in Athletic Training, and then put his knowledge and experiences to work as a graduate assistant; all while working on his MS in Exercise Science while at Syracuse University in upstate New York. From here, he went on to attend the Medical College of Pennsylvania / Hahnemann University (now Drexel University) in Philadelphia, PA, where he was awarded his Master’s of Physical Therapy (MPT). After working for several years in and around the Pittsburgh area, he and his wife decided to relocate to the DMV Metro Area in the Summer of 2010, having taken a position with the Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics – Montgomery Orthopaedics. In 2018, Scott was awarded his transitional Doctorate of Physical Threapy (DPT) through Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA.
Scott is avid pursuer of PT continuing education opportunities, regularly exceeding what is required him by the state of Maryland. He holds certifications in Functional Dry Needling through Kinetacore, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilizations (IASTM) through Hawkgrips, and Fascial Movement Taping through Rocktape.
Scott is a very passionate clinician that takes great joy in seeing his patients realize the goals that they have set for themselves, while returning to their prior level of function.
Scott is married and currently resides in Germantown, MD. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, travel, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and spending time with his family.
