Background Story

FREEDOM PHYSICAL THERAPY was founded in March 2012 by Don Freehafer, PT. This stemmed from Don’s true passion to serve the residents of the local and surrounding communities, and to “give back” to the community that has been such a tremendous blessing to him and his family. Don also recognized a need for a higher quality, lower cost alternative for physical therapy services in the area with a more convenient location, improved “healing environment” and extended hours of operation/flexible scheduling in order to accommodate patients’ busy lives. Over his 25+ year career, Don has developed a large, loyal clientele base in the local area. He realizes the importance of genuinely listening to his patients and building personal relationships with them in order to better meet their needs.
