Blair received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Ithaca College, where he also received a bachelor’s degree in clinical health studies, graduating magna cum laude. Through his clinical education, he gained experience in outpatient orthopedic and skilled nursing settings. During his final year at school, Blair completed and presented a research project on low back pain in the professional golf athlete. Outside of academics, Blair participated on the men’s varsity soccer team at Ithaca, serving as a captain during his junior and senior years. He also worked as a personal trainer at the on-campus fitness center, where he instructed students and faculty in proper programming and technique.
Blair was first drawn to the physical therapy profession through his interest in the human body and health promotion. As a former collegiate athlete and lifelong lover of sports, he has learned many lessons involving injury and the heartbreak of being sidelined from doing what you love. It is his goal to educate and empower patients through their condition in order to get them back to their passions, whatever they may be. Blair’s goals for therapy are to keep patients engaged and active throughout each session, while constantly challenging them to reach their goals.
In his spare time, Blair stays active in a variety of ways. He spends his time in the gym weightlifting and distance running. He also loves simply exploring the city by foot, hiking national parks, watching professional soccer, and spending time with friends and family.
