Here at Applied Physical medicine/Tygiel Physical Therapy, we treat for a variety of ailments with a full range of physical therapy services.

As a professional triathlete, recovery and injury prevention is very important to me. I have been to a number of massage therapists, chiropractors, and physical therapists from around the world, and I take choosing my recovery team very seriously. I always look forward to visiting Dr. Noah Abrahams and his team at Applied Physical Medicine + Tygiel Physical Therapy in Tucson – he has one of the best practices that I have been to. I have personally worked with Noah for a couple of years now – he gets me in last minute and he has never let me leave his office if I was not feeling better. I highly recommend him for injury prevention or treatment of any physical ailment. This year, thanks to his help and care, I placed 2nd at the Tongyeong World Cup in South Korea.

I’ve been dealing with nagging tendinitis in my left elbow for almost 2 years. I have seen 2 different physical therapists, been on 2 different anti-inflammatory plans, and have seen an acupuncturist. Nothing seemed to work. My elbow never got better. I have been seeing Noah at Applied Physical Medicine for a few weeks now, and my elbow hasn’t felt this good in years. I am thoroughly impressed with the work Noah has been doing for me. He saw the big picture! Thanks to his knowledge and skills, my elbow feels great. I would recommend Noah and APM to anyone.

Thank you so much for all you have done. I’m back to competition form and I have you to thank for that. My hip feels amazing and I cannot wait to take the mound again and prove what I’m capable of. Your knowledge and expertise is more than I could have asked for. I will without a doubt come to you when/if ever needed again and would recommend anyone to do the same. Again, thank you and I wish you the best of luck!

I was in pain and had dysfunction that started in my upper back and went into my neck and arm. I had tried multiple modalities to try to restore the function and alleviate the pain, to no avail. I called Noah as an attempt to find some sanity and relief. Noah told me I was likely to have some marginal improvement but it would probably take more than just a couple treatments to get a substantial benefit. Noah needled my body on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and did some manual manipulation and active release. Honestly I didn’t feel much better immediately after. It was days before I started noticing the results, but once I did the results- marginal at first became profound. Suddenly I could turn my neck without pain; the range of motion was greatly increased. My left side started to “wake up” and I noticed the effects of chiropractic care were much more pronounced as my adjustments held much longer after his treatment. It’s difficult to describe the gift Noah’s care has given me, but he has put me on the path to healing and my pain is gone, my function on my left side is coming back. HUGE improvements after 1 year of hitting my head against the wall in only a few treatments. The only downside is Noah is too far from where I live in California to treat me regularly. I recommend Noah’s service and knowledge without reservation; he not only is great at his profession but is caring and intelligent in his approach.

I have worked as a Registered Nurse for about 15 years now and am extremely aware of how important body mechanics are when preforming as a nurse. However, no matter how cautious you are, 15 years of nursing does cause some wear and tear on the body. I started working with Noah Abrahams in the Emergency Department approximately three years ago as a co-worker. I heard over and over by patients that he treated how wonderful he was/is. Several co-workers had worked with him in a patient/therapist setting and also gave rave reviews. I had been suffering with sciatic type pain intermittently for years but it was only in the past 2 years that it was really affecting my job. Every day activities were now causing excruciating pain and patients were noticing my discomfort at work. I approached Noah Abrahams for evaluation and treatment of this sciatic type pain. He in the past year has given me back a sense of control. I very rarely have a sciatic flare up; when I do I have been taught how to relieve the pain myself. I can now go to work and know that I can perform my job without dreading every bend and turn. Not only has he been able to provide rehabilitative therapy for my sciatic pain but he has also been helping me to maintain my back health/strength. Over the past year my treatments have been progressively more preventative verse rehabilitative. Noah Abrahams has instructed me on strengthen exercises and stretches to maintain entire spine/back health. He understands that my life is occasionally stressful and that I tend to carry my stress in my back, causing shoulder, upper back and neck discomfort. He evaluates and adjusts our sessions dependent on what is going on in my life; some days its dry needling, or manual manipulation of spine and muscles and on really stressful days, its strengthening excises and stretching. I get personalized treatment every day. Noah Abrahams has also adjusted session times dependent on changes in my life; during periods of increased stress we go to two sessions a week, during relaxed easy going times and its back to once a week. Noah Abrahams is also available for that emergency session on days that I did something wrong; had to wrestle some 200+ pound patient, pulled up a 400 pound patient one to many times or just had my son jump on me wrong. Noah Abrahams is a phone call away and is always willing to help.
