Sonora Regional Medical Center welcomes Rana Rand, D.O., a board-certified Physiatrist who uses non-surgical methods to treat patients with nerve, muscle and bone diseases or injuries. Dr. Rand is skilled in neuromusculoskeletal and sports medicine, osteopathic manipulation, and regenerative medicine approaches.

She will complete her medical acupuncture training through Harvard Medical School in June 2017.

“I chose a career in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation because I appreciate its holistic and hands-on approach to physical diagnosis and treatment,” explains Dr. Rand. She tailors treatment to each individual using a range of tools including exercise, physical therapy, medications, and injections as well as gentle osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture, and nutrition to help reduce pain and enhance function. She has a particular focus on treating pelvic, hip, and sacroiliac joint pain.
