Dr. Abrahamson works with all patients, all injuries, joint pain, rotator cuff tears and arthritis, all injuries, all ages, all people. Integrative Sports Medicine offers complete shoulder diagnostic ultrasounds, and of course x-ray and MRI reading and physical diagnosis, which also includes a team-based and goal-based, holistic approach to your injury.
We perform running gait analysis, throwing analysis, highly sports-specific things like that but Integrative Sports Medicine does not just treat athletes. Integrative care means that Dr. Abrahamson works intimately with many other fields on a highly-communicative and horizontal playing field.
Our integrative approach includes Physiotherapy, Physical Therapy, Functional Medicine, RDs, NDs, MDs and DOs, massage therapy, Yoga, and many more services and people that can help get you healthy.
This starts with listening because your story matters a lot in making the diagnosis. During and after listening, we perform a physical examination. Often at that point, a diagnosis is reached or at least highly suspected.
A Functional Approach
We care that you are hurt, and we also intensely care exactly the sequence of events that led to how you got hurt. We are talking timelines, details, movement patterns, behaviors, stressors, and any kind of demand that was put on you and your body to produce the problem. There is always cause and effect. We want to go back in time and figure out how to not repeat the pattern that got you here.
Injections, Activity Modification and other Therapies
We offer the full spectrum of treatments, including injections of all kinds, from long-lasting steroid injections to PRP and bone marrow progenitor cells, bracing, activity modification, and other therapies. If you choose a regenerative, biologic option to boost healing, we have the highest concentration of cells and platelets available anywhere. We also think through your situation in detail about anything else we can recommend.
Care, Study and Follow-Through.
We believe that part of caring for you is actually caring about you. We collect data about you over time to track your progress. This allows us to know over time what actually works, in addition to keeping up with the latest research. You may be asked to complete short, easy knee function surveys over time so we have useful data about you and what is working.
Treatment on your Terms
Integrative Sports Medicine will work with you to develop a comprehensive and minimally-invasive treatment plan without ignoring any surgical or non-surgical details. You get to discuss all of this with us and you get to have exactly as much autonomy as you would like. Some people say: “What would you have your parent or sibling do?” and that is fine. A heavy dose of autonomy in choosing your personalized treatment plan is just fine with us as well.
Referral to Other Community Experts
Integrative Sports Medicine takes a broad and horizontal look at the community and uses many other providers as part of the team. You might be surprised at what the community can offer. For example, if there are any gait abnormalities or other movement problems (biomechanics) we recommend Physical Therapy for treatment.
Imaging solutions include:
Diagnostic ultrasound (in-office)
A Personalized Assessment
We want to know what your goals are and be on your team to get you back to the activities you love to do. Do you want to return to a sport? We can help you do that. Do you want to run or cycle better or just be able to walk better with less pain? We are on your team working toward a goal.
Biologic and Regenerative Therapies
It is astonishing what legitimate, FDA-compliant and researched new therapies can do. We offer the highest quality products and minimally-invasive procedures available at a value that will surprise you in comparison with surgery. New science gives us more non-surgical options, and we constantly look for the best evidence and outcomes for you. If surgery is your best option, we will let you know that; not everyone is a perfect candidate for regenerative therapies.
