Dr. Paige Graham
Paige's Involvement in sports medicine and performance started in junior high when she partially tore her hip flexor playing soccer. Working with a physical therapist who made sessions both goal oriented and fun fueled her desire to become a part of this profession. Her interest and passion continued to grow as she worked with multiple physical therapists and athletic trainers throughout her Division I collegiate soccer career at UW-Milwaukee.
Paige received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Illinois at Chicago. After a few years of living and working in Illinois her husband's residency brought them back to the Milwaukee area. With individualized and patient centered care getting harder to come by, her goal is to flip the script making interdisciplinary care and a 'team mentality' treatment philosophy the norm.
Paige's Specific interests are working with both competitive and recreational athletes. She enjoys multiple fitness outlets herself including weight training, cycling, rowing and running. During the warm Wisconsin summers you can find her on a lake, hiking a trail or in the gym. Wanting to participate in those activities herself without pain or limitation drives her to help her patients do the same. She recognizes that health, fitness and performance look different for everyone. Whether it's being able to pick up your grandkids, hitting a new PR in the gym or getting back to performance on the field she will help you get there!
