Dr. Aman Abye
Dr. Aman Abye was born to an American-Ethiopian family in Southern California. He attended public schools and graduated from John Marshall High School, where he was not only an honor roll student but also a 3 sport varsity athlete. After that, he attended the University of Pennsylvania, from which he graduated in 1997 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Throughout his college career, he not only succeeded in his classes but also on the football team, helping it achieve ivy league titles two years in a row.
Even though he attended college in Philadelphia, he returned to Los Angeles after graduation, where he pursued a career in professional football for the Los Angeles Avengers, among others. At the same time, he coached the football team from his old high school. His six year football career gave him an opportunity to travel all over the country, as well as meet influential leaders within the sports world.
In 2000, while he was still playing professional football, Aman Abye started his doctorate degree in Physical Therapy at Temple University, becoming Dr. Aman Abye. Once he graduated, he once again came back to Los Angeles, where he started his career in healthcare. He spent the first three years as a part of a rehab team that practiced in Beverly Hills, gaining experience and learning how to help a variety of patients, from professional athletes to office workers. In 2006 Dr. Aman Abye started his own medical practice, which has grown significantly since then. As of today, there are two (soon to be three) clinics helping patients in the Los Angeles area.
Even after retirement from professional sports, Dr. Abye continues to be involved in the industry. In 2017, he began working with the Los Angeles Clipper’s, physical and performance therapy staff, traveling with the team around the country and working with player’s to rehabilitate injuries and maximize on-court performance.
