Prior to this, he received a Bachelor of Science in biology and chemistry, with a minor in exercise science from Indiana University Bloomington, magna cum laude in 2017.

His wife, Erica, is also a chiropractor working in the same facility. Dr. Graham was attending a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner seminar when he met Dr. Phipps, who was looking for an associate. He was inspired by Dr. Phipps who had a very successful practice as a chiropractor and soon found he was planning to retire. Dr. Graham applied for the position at his center and it worked out very well for both of them. Furthermore, Dr. Graham is one of the two people in Indiana who is certified in the zone technique. Some of his patients endure two hours of driving to be treated by him.

On a daily basis, Dr. Graham treats patients, runs the clinic, manages the building and office space, and interviews and hires applicants. In 2021, he worked with the US Women’s Olympic wrestling team to prepare for the Summer Olympics in Japan, and worked with Tamyra Mensah-Stock, who was the first African American woman to win the Olympic gold in wrestling and the second American to win. He worked on the XLVI Super Bowl Halftime Show with Madonna. His awards include being named one of the Big Ten Rugby MVP in 2013, as well as receiving the Kevin Higgins Scholarship Award in 2012, and being named to the Dean’s List every semester in college. Dr. Graham’s ultimate goal is to have many chiropractic clinics and serve in a management role, having doctors come in and receive from him as Dr. Phipps did for him.

Dr. Haider’s decision to go into first aid and trauma management began when he was in high school. Having gravitated to science and medicine, he pursued the field in his academic pursuits, earning an MBBS at Dow Medical College at the Dow University of Health Sciences in Karachi, Pakistan in 2014, and received an MD from the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduate through the U.S. Medical License Examination in 2015. In 2020, he received both an ASC from the School of Public Health and Health Professions and a PhD from the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

He hopes to get the word out for people to know that with multiple sclerosis it was about facing his disability, overcoming it, or working around it which was the most important thing to him outside of work. He did not let his disability overtake him. In five years, Dr. Haider plans to excel in his field for concussion-related research. His goal is to be the world leader in cerebral blood flow regulation after brain injuries.
