With a whole-health approach to wellness, the physicians and dietitians from IMUA work together to help identify the cause of each client’s injury and pain.

By using a combination of osteopathic manipulation, sports medicine, and wellness coaching, the experts from IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health help people achieve an optimal fitness level while eliminating pain. It’s clear from the many testimonials on the IMUA's website that this unique approach to sports medicine is effective for even the most competitive professional athletes.

Famed professional body boarder Spencer Skipper decided to go to IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health after suffering a shoulder injury that he thought might end his career. Fortunately, “after being treated by Dr. Gesik, I was back in action, fully functioning, and stronger than I was before the injury. Dr. Gesik’s osteopathic techniques and level of care are by far the best I have ever experienced.” Mr. Skipper isn’t alone in his assessment of IMUA’s excellence.

Professional runner, All-American, and Hawaii State Record Holder Todd Iacovelli also trusts the experts from IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health to provide him with unparalleled orthopedic and sports medicine care. He first visited the practice after feeling lower leg pain, and being told by several other doctors that the answer was to stop running. 

Once he went to IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health, however, he heard a different story. “Dr. Ignacio was a breath of fresh air as her knowledge and positivity combined to help me understand that it was still possible for me to run pain-free.” Mr. Iacovelli worked extensively with Dr. Gesik and Dr. Ignacio, delving into everything from biomechanics to nutrition—and ultimately it paid off. “As a direct result of their efforts, I was able to get healthy and set a personal best for the first time since 2009.”

These are just a couple of the convincing testimonials from professional athletes that you’ll find on the IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health website. In order to receive the best sports medicine and orthopedic care on Oahu, go to the doctors that local professional athletes trust.
