Amir Rand is the Regional Director of our Gotham region. He earned his Doctorate in Physical Therapy with distinction from The New York Institute of Technology. His clinical experience includes outpatient orthopedics, sports-related injuries, and post-operative rehabilitation.
While at NYIT, Amir completed a challenging acute bedside clinical affiliation at NYU’s Tisch Hospital. His experience at NYU gave Amir a greater appreciation for the rehabilitation experience.
Growing up on Long Island, Amir played Division I soccer, lacrosse, and football. Amir is also trained in mixed martial arts, having practiced Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu for 10 years and counting. Amir’s experience with his own orthopedic injuries during his training sparked his passion for physical therapy.
Prior to joining SPEAR, Amir was a divisional director for a Fortune 500 staffing firm, helping New Yorkers achieve their career goals. Through his work, Amir was exposed to a variety of industries and gained valuable insight into the daily routines of different types of business professionals. This has helped Amir to quickly relate to the needs of his patients, enabling him to get them back to life and back to work stronger than prior to injury.
