What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About WildHawk Physical Therapy in Asheville, NC
Gritfit Studio LOVES WildHawk!!!
As a physical therapist and an owner of a physical therapy practice I know and have seen the vast differences in the quality of care given by physical therapists. In my opinion, WildHawk provides the highest quality of care a patient can receive and are the ones I turn to for care for myself, my loved ones, and patients of mine that travel to the Asheville area.
I have been to PT before for lower back pain, among other issues, and it has been helpful. This year, the accumulated sedentary time and stress from working remotely during the pandemic finally came home to roost. After a severe pain flareup in March left me bedridden for days, and caused me to miss many days of work, I reached out to my primary care and was referred to an orthopedist. Because my pain is intermittent and nerve-related, rather than related to a specific join or soft tissue injury, it was difficult to determine the cause. The orthopedist all but told me not to come back to their office! So PT was my only option. I took the advice of a friend and previous patient of Wildhawk, and booked with Ryan.
I worked with Christian, he was very professional. He explained what he was doing and why. The session was powerful and the results amazing. The most important part to me was that I left with exercises to do on my own . It was a very empowering session.
Very professional environment.
I went in uncertain and walked out with lots of knowledge.
Would highly recommend.

I was experiencing debilitating shoulder pain after years as a stylist, within a few sessions, including dry needling and diligently doing my “homework”, I am now pain free. So, naturally when I then hurt my back, I knew exactly where to go! Christian is knowledgeable, and takes great care listening, observing and personalizing individuals treatment plans, and it has paid off!
Very nice, professional and they know their work! Christian is our PT, awesome!
“I went to WildHawk PT after being in tremendous low back & SI joint pain for months. I was having trouble moving through everyday life and could hardly sleep, which was keeping me from working and doing any kind of physical activity. I had seen all sorts of professionals—massage therapists, acupuncturists, a chiropractor, even an orthopedic doctor, but none of that was helping, and I was beginning to feel very desperate and discouraged.”
“On my first visit to WildHawk PT, I was very impressed by their extensive knowledge and professionalism. The therapist took a lot of care to identify the issues that were causing the pain. I was so encouraged when I started to feel relief after that first visit. After four weeks of treatment and doing the prescribed daily exercises, the pain was almost gone completely! I am so grateful to WildHawk PT for helping me get my life back and empowering me to help myself too. I only wish I had gone to see them sooner!”

“If you are having pain and want to try physical therapy – I highly recommend Christian Busch.
I was referred to Christian Busch for physical therapy in January 2020, and continued therapy with him through September 2020. I have an issue with scoliosis that has caused neck and back pain for a number of years. I have gone to physical therapy several times, but no one addressed the underlying issue of scoliosis.
Christian told me in our first session that he could not change the alignment of my spine – but he could strengthen and improve my muscles to help me sit, stand, and walk better – and reduce my pain.
I work remotely for a software company, and use a computer to get my work done. I have lots of ergonomic tools – a sit-stand desk and an ergonomic chair. But these tools alone were not reducing my back and neck pain.
Christian showed me how my posture (leaning to the right) was causing most of the issues. He gave me simple exercises that didn’t involve any expensive equipment that I could do at home. He printed out an example of every exercise, each with an illustration and clear instructions.
My husband has noticed a big difference, and tells me I’m sitting and standing much straighter. No more slumping to the right. And my back pain and neck pain have reduced considerably.
I want to thank Christian for the personal attention and support he gave to help me overcome my issues with scoliosis. Christian has the training and expertise to work on difficult issues. I recommend him highly.”
“I came to Ryan a few weeks ago in a desperate plea for help. I am very active with mountain biking, strength training and yoga and was inhibited in all 3 activities due to a combination of elbow tendonitis and rotator cuff pain in my right shoulder. The pain had gotten so bad, it was affecting not only my sport activities, but also many aspects other aspects of my life. Ryan’s knowledge and expertise allowed him to immediately develop a plan of attack for me which included special techniques of manual manipulation, targeting exercises and dry needling. I am so excited to share that after 6 weeks I have been able to gain significant strength in my right arm and back to doing all the things I love again, with little to no pain in my elbow or shoulder. Ryan was very patient to answer all my questions about the injuries and taught me many ways to strengthen and protect these joints in the future. I will recommend WildHawk PT to anyone who is struggling with chronic pain from injury or otherwise, these guys are great!”
