Noah Abrahams, PT, DPT

Noah Abrahams | Applied Physical Medicine

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

After earning his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in Mesa, AZ, Noah spent time in Australia working with a professional Aussie-rules Football team as well as the AIDI (Australian International Dance Institute). He eventually moved to Tucson and worked as a PT in a hospital ER. There his eyes were opened to badly broken parts of our medical system. He saw the troubling consequences of opioid abuse, injections that masked patients’ pain, and ineffective, unnecessary surgeries that opened the door to future complications. In many cases these patients had never tried Physical Therapy.

At the same time, Noah was studying to learn some new techniques which he put into place resulting in tremendous outcomes. He realized his calling to put those skills to use helping people BEFORE they went down the path of pills, injections, or surgery, and he wasn’t going to be able to do that in the Emergency Room.

Dr. Abrahams opened a practice out of his own home and was so busy that he knew he had to get an office and find other therapists that shared his vision. 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. Noah told Phil his vision for the future and Dr. Tygiel knew that Noah was the right person to succeed him.

Noah shares his love of world travel, musical theater, and college basketball with his amazing wife, Mel. They have three of the cutest weiner dogs on the planet: Winston (Winnie-Pie), Wilbur (ras-ba-dooby) and Walter (wally, Wallace, walty, wally-bean). They are so thrilled to live in a town as amazing as Tucson. Even though his position is still considered “work”, Noah still has a passion for educating people about how to live a better quality of life. When not in the office, Noah spends many of his free weekends giving seminars for powerlifting gyms, Crossfit gyms, and other community partners.
