Jeffrey Verhagen

PT, MBA, CMTPT
Director of Clinical Therapy & Clinical Operations Administrator

Jeffrey Verhagen started his career as a Physical Therapist in 1990 after graduating from the University of Wisconsin -Madison. He furthered his breadth of knowledge by attending several post-graduate continuing education opportunities with a focus on manual therapy for orthopedic, spine and sports injuries. He soon learned that he enjoyed treating spine problems and patients with headaches.

In order to properly assess the etiology of headaches, he expanded his studies to include the evaluation and treatment of TMD/craniofacial pain and in 2013 completed a certification in Intramuscular Dry Needling through Myopain Seminars. Dry Needling treats myofascial trigger points and their affect on localized and referred pain. He soon learned that he could successfully treat TMD and craniofacial pain for patients that had tried other treatment approaches and still were left with pain and loss of function.

Jeff has attended several courses and has reviewed the literature to expand his ability to successfully treat this challenging population. Recently, Freedom Physical Therapy Services, commissioned Steve Kraus PT, a well known TMJ therapist and educator, to come to the Milwaukee area and teach the latest treatment techniques and research on TMD/craniofacial pain to our therapy staff. Jeff looks forward to continuing to expand his knowledge to better serve this patient population.

Jeff has been with Freedom Physical Therapy Service since July of 2000 and currently serves as the Clinical Operations Administrator for the practice. He earned his Master of Business Administration from Cardinal Stritch University in 1999. He also served 21 years in the Army Reserves and is a Desert Storm veteran.

Jeff resides in Brookfield with his wife and two children and enjoys many hobbies to include golf, fishing and reading.
