The History of Freedom

Freedom Physical Therapy Services was founded in 1992 by Peter Stathas. Michael was hired as an independent contractor shortly after the business opened in Fox Point. In 1997, Michael and Peter became 50/50 owners. The Fox Point location was Freedom’s first official location for Peter and Michael. The location was half the size it is today and in addition to physical therapy, they also offered fox point’s best Pilates instruction. Over the years, the business grew, and in 2002, the Brookfield and Grafton locations were added to service the growing patient needs of the areas. In 2014, Michael took over as sole owner of the business. In the same year, Freedom Physical Therapy Services acquired its fourth greater Milwaukee location in Mukwonago.  Michael has continued to grow the business, with specialty programs, such as TMJ and headache treatment, extensive women’s health, and vestibular rehab.

A little on the name Freedom: The name “Freedom” came to Peter after hearing Richie Havens sing the song with the same name. Over the years the name has been reshaped to serve the business, but its primary meaning of being “free” has not. Freedom Physical Therapy Services prides itself on helping people at all abilities and levels return to what they enjoy doing.

Through the course of 28+ years of being in business, Freedom Physical Therapy Services has proudly grown, leading to over 35,000 patient visits annually.  Freedom currently employs over 50 employees between the 4 locations and looks forward to continuing to serve the surrounding communities, helping as many as possible ENJOY MORE FREEDOM.
