Noah Abrahams, Physical Therapist Tucson, AZ

Noah Abrahams, PT, DPT

I spent my early years in San Diego and abroad in Tokyo, and I have been in love with seeing the sights of the world my entire life. As an avid athlete, my dream of attending a storied basketball college came true, and I will always cherish my time at Indiana University, where I earned my Bachelors of Science in Public Management and a minor in Kinesiology.

After earning my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in Mesa, AZ, I spent time in Australia working with a professional Aussie-rules Football team. I eventually moved to Tucson to work as a PT in a hospital ER, where my eyes were opened to badly broken parts of our medical system. I saw the troubling consequences of opioid abuse, injections that masked patients’ pain, and ineffective, unnecessary surgeries that opened the door to future complications, and in most cases these patients had never tried Physical Therapy. At the same time, I was studying in my spare time to learn some new techniques that I put into place and saw tremendous results. I realized that my calling was to put those skills to use to help people BEFORE they went down the path of pills, injections, or surgery, and I wasn’t going to be able to do that in the Emergency Room.

I opened a practice out of my home, and I got so busy that I knew I had to get an office and find other therapists that shared my vision. At the same time, Phil Tygiel had been helping people for decades with their pain, and he was looking for the right person to take over his clinic, the one we are in today. I told him my vision for the future, and he knew that I was the right person to succeed him.

I share my love of world travel, musical theater, and college basketball with my amazing wife, Mel. We have two of the cutest wiener dogs on the planet, Winston and Wilbur, and we are so thrilled to live in a town as amazing as Tucson. Even though I guess it is still considered “work”, I still have a passion for educating people about how to live a better quality of life, and I spend many of my free weekends giving seminars for powerlifting gyms, Crossfit gyms, and other community partners.
