What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About WildHawk Physical Therapy in Asheville, NC

Shelby Gurley

I first came in contact with Ryan back in April 2021.

In April I gave birth to my daughter and suffered severe sciatic nerve damage resulting in foot drop and paralysis of various muscles in my left leg. I was scheduled to an “in network” physical therapy facility where I met Ryan. He was working part time at the facility while he was also trying to jump start his on clinic. This meant I only had the luxury of working with him a few times before he went off on his own. Those few times that I worked with him were so memorable that 2 years later I am seeking help from Wildhawk Physical Therapy “out of network.” The care, drive and attention Ryan showed was unmatched, and trust me I saw my fair share of PTs over the past two years.

I now see both Ryan and Kari at Wildhawk Physical therapy and could not rave more on the care that they have provided me and continue to provide present day. They are attentive and eager to get YOU back to your optimal operating speed.

If you need a physical therapist or pelvic floor therapist these are ones you’ve been waiting for! They will motivate and support you through your healing journey!

Matthew Alcala

They take more time than other PTs are allotted to make sure you understand your workouts! Also they do a variety of helpful things to help like dry needling and other manipulations that loosen things up! I’ve had a persistent shoulder/neck issue and have seen good progress. I’m going to the gym and doing workouts that I used to avoid!

Erin Silva

Christian and Kari have supported my road to post-natal recovery. I came in with pelvic floor weakness, thoracic stiffness and a stress fracture in my foot. I am not longer having pain and I’m feeling stronger 3 months in.

Chris Smith

Christian is the man! Wouldn’t recommend getting therapy anywhere else. Can’t beat the environment and attention to detail their staff provides.

Sadie Sondgerath

Ryan at WildHawk Physical Therapy was probably the best PT I’ve ever seen. He was knowledgeable and friendly. He helped me with my back problem and was available for questions in a very welcoming manner. I’d recommend him and the practice in a heartbeat.

Carolyn Sprinkle

I have specifically had dealings with Kari. As a mature woman, I felt I needed some extra care for needs that arise often times. I decided to try PT. I am 4 times into my sessions and the strength and tone I have gained has been shocking and gratifying! I would strongly suggest this group and physical therapy to anyone! As an RN, I have worked in rehab with PT. They are resourceful, knowledgeable and respectful. This group, and from my personal experience, Kari has helped give me hope that I can have life without surgery! Thank you WildHawk. Thank you Kari!

Alana Iannello

I had been struggling with an ongoing issue with my SI joint for over a year before seriously re-injuring it in CrossFit. I was in really bad shape before a friend recommended WildHawk PT. Christian and Ryan were able to see me the day I reached out! Christian spent almost two hours with me during my initial visit assessing my injury and my individual strengths and weaknesses in my body. He was very thorough in evaluating my specific needs. He dry needled my injury that day which provided immediate relief along with prescribing individualized exercises to assist with my recovery. In my time as a client at WildHawk, I have also been seen by Ryan who is another incredibly talented and knowledgeable PT. Both Christian and Ryan are effective communicators and practitioners who take the time to truly listen and prescribe high quality treatment in a relaxed atmosphere. Both guys are super down to earth and easy going! I highly recommend WildHawk, these guys have been able to get this gal back to her yoga mat and back on the hiking trails with the fam!

Cayce Jones

I highly recommend this place! I was in a car accident 5 months ago hurt my shoulder and neck really bad. and these guys have done so much to help me and I’ve improved a lot since day 1. Ryan is the best! He’s help me, gave me tips on what I should do to help with my shoulder and neck. And if something made pain worse he would find something else to help out better. At first I wasn’t so sure about the dry needling, but afterwards I felt so much better. And I look forward to getting dry needling now that I’m use to it. Definitely goes above and beyond to help out and listens to the ups and downs with pain levels and how I’ve been doing since last appointment.

Tala Dajani

After struggling with leaks for years, I had complete resolution after one session and now working on keeping it that way. I highly recommend pelvic floor PT with Kari who is amazing and very gentle.

Shlomit Albagli

Christian at WildHawk Physical Therapy is an amazing physical therapist. It’s the best place to get a thorough diagnosis and effective treatment plan. They really know their craft and make true difference in their clients life. Best and most lasting results! Highly recommend.

Randall Malcolm

Ryan was personable, professional, and knowledgeable. It was the best physical therapy experience I’ve had.

John Traylor

Great, thorough review of issues I was having with my shoulder and hip. Ryan has provided comprehensive treatment to help my recovery. I would recommend WildHawk to anyone looking for PT treatment.

Mollie Boganny

WildHawk Physical Therapy provides comprehensive PT services with individualized treatment plans. Their facility is extremely clean and organized and in a very convenient location. I worked specifically with Kari, who is kind, professional and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this group for any Physical Therapy needs.

Eric Vargas

The team at WildHawk Physical Therapy is amazing. Anyone searching for healthcare providers that work with you 1 on 1 and take the time to listen/work with you on your long term goals, check them out!

Haley Collins

Kari is great for Pelvic PT. Very comfortable and welcoming environment. I bought 6 sessions and it has really made a difference.

Adrienne Inez

Trail running is very important to me; it’s what I love to do! I had two gnarly falls that left me experiencing knee pain which impacted my ability to continue training for a “bucket list” race I had signed up for. Christian helped me by identifying weakness in my core and hips. As a runner, it’s hard to hear that you have weak hips! But I trust Christian. He provided a clear path to strengthening those pesky hips and helped me with mobility — both in my ankles and hips. I did the exercises he recommended and finished that “bucket list” race — and I didn’t fall! My knee felt good throughout. With Christian’s help, my recovery was such a success that I signed up for a 50-mile race in June!

Leigh Lafoon

I sought out physical therapy due to having a difficult time recovering my core strength after my second c-section. I did not have any expectations but knew I needed to try something. I am so happy I found Kari at Wild Hawk PT. I have learned so much about myself and body and feel so much stronger. I cant recommend her enough!

Jesse Dickson

I was skeptical to go at first. But when I got there Ryan made me feel at home. He told me upfront what to expect and how to get better and has helped all the way. He has always answered all my questions even on days not at the office. It’s expensive but every thing is but this place is well worth the money. I would Recommend them to anyone in a need of physical therapy. They are top notch

Sarah Turner

I’ve loved working with Kari on pelvic floor physical therapy. She is so knowledgeable and helpful. Would highly recommend!

Kiril Nikolov

Very happy with the service. Highly recommend it! My shoulder feels so much better now. I am able to go to the gym again.

Amanda Gion

I would highly recommend WildHawk to anyone looking for quality physical therapy! The team they have there are not only great PTs but awesome people who really care about their patients!


I guess my desperation was ever so slightly more powerful than my skepticism. So as a last ditch effort, I took a leap, claimed the promo offer and went to WildHawk to see if they could help me as advertised.
I am SO grateful I did.
I saw a difference immediately after the first visit with Kari. Kari is awesome btw, she will very quickly quell any unease, thoroughly explains everything that’s going on & genuinely is there to help. I am a new client & have a ways to go still, but I also now have hope that with the help of WildHawk, I will some day soon, finally get back to a limitless life!

Ashley Echevarria

WildHawk Physical Therapy is a very trusted and high caliber physical therapy clinic. As a Neuromuscular Massage Therapist and experienced healthcare worker I trust Christian and Ryan to take care of my clients at the highest level. I know when I send my clients to them they are going to be heard and cared for the way every patient deserves. These physical therapists really know their stuff and take the time with each patient one on one that they feel is necessary to achieve all their wellness goals. They are without a doubt my top pick of physical therapists in Asheville to confidentiality send my clients to! Book with them today… you won’t be disappointed!

John Meadows

I highly recommend physical therapy from WildHawk! Christian worked on my shoulder and neck and it worked! With a combination of exercise, stretching and dry needling, the pain that I was experiencing has been reduced 99 percent.

Go there! If you have pain, go there! If you find me, talk to me and I will tell you to go there!

And guess what? Christian is a great person and very professional!

Go there!

Shannon Ginn

Kind, compassionate and incredibly supportive. Not only amazing at what they do, WildHawk truly has helped me with my ailment as well as my clients that I send.
Gritfit Studio LOVES WildHawk!!!

Claudette Silver

Ryan is an incredible healer, extremely knowledgeable in how to get his patients back on track. I have struggled for quite some time with shoulder pain from overuse/overhead workouts. Ryan’s healing plan for me has included dry needling, physical manipulations, home exercises AND a continued workout routine at the gym, which was very important to me. He’s also extremely personable and really listens to what’s going on for you. I highly recommend Ryan and the WildHawk team to anyone suffering with chronic pain. Don’t delay!

Mickey Blue

I came in with shoulder pain, numbness in my fingers, and loss of strength in one arm. Ryan told me it was likely the remnants of a tear in my muscle from about a year prior. Within 2 visits, I had a list of exercises to do and now I’m back to wrestling and lifting with no problems. Very professional, confidential, and relaxed atmosphere. I will always recommend WildHawk Physical Therapy to my friends and teammates.

Ann Araps

Great PT experience. Ryan was knowledgeable, helpful and followed up each week to check on progress and needs. Would absolutely recommend! Helped heal my pinched nerve and get me back to regular life 🙂

Eric Elert

Christian is by far the best physical therapist that I have seen. He helped me with my knee and hip problems. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I am so excited that he is in Asheville.

Ben Bagge

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.

Life is too short to avoid the activities you love because of pain. Give these guys a shot and I promise you won’t regret it. When I say it will be life changing I’m not being dramatic. These guys are the real deal!

Morgan Allison

WildHawk made such a difference for me! I stumbled across an Instagram ad after struggling with shoulder pain for over a year. After trying acupuncture and at home stretches I was convinced I was bound for an orthopedic office. Ryan was so knowledgeable and quickly pinpointed my shoulder issues. Following his regimen and a few office visits I rarely have any discomfort and my range of motion is significantly improved. I was so impressed with Ryan’s work and my progress, I decided to see Kari for long standing pelvic floor dysfunction postpartum. Kari gave me exercises and tips that easily incorporated into my busy, working mom lifestyle. I can’t say enough good things about WildHawk!

John Moore

Great clinic and great therapists! They are highly knowledgeable and can help you in all aspects of therapy to get you feeling your best!

Kelsey Fuge

Christian is great! Patient, attentive and excellent dry needling skills!

Kristy Ponce

I came to wild hawk after experiencing some shoulder pain. Ryan got me in quickly and helped me to find the root cause of the problem and worked with me to alleviate the pain and prevent it from returning. The whole office is inviting and makes you feel comfortable immediately walking in. I truly can’t recommend Wild Hawk PT enough!!

Mark Capon

A crucial element to my journey out of back & knee pain. Very thoughtful, attentive, helpful physical therapy!

Kristy Grayson

Christian is not only an extremely skilled Physical Therapist but he is caring and dedicated to improving the lives of others. This is not just a job but his passion and you can tell by the hard work and thought that Christian puts into each session. I highly recommend WildHawk Physical Therapy Clinic and Christian for any physical therapy or pain management needs.

Bruning Wellness

As a fellow PT I love to see other clinics who do things right, and WildHawk is one of them. If you’ve had PT before and had to put up with looking at your therapist’s back half the time because they were treating 2-3 people at once, you did not have true physical therapy. Invest in your health with a clinic like this that will give you complete undivided attention and help you correct the source of the issue that is keeping you from doing the things you love.

Adam Kays

As a fellow healthcare professional, seeing an orthopedic specialist who also knows how to analyze movement is invaluable. What was most important to me was getting direct 1-on-1 care and being taught the cause of my knee pain. Christian looked at every joint from my lower back down to my ankle and my mind has been forever changed as to what PT should look like!

Deloris Dixon

Dr. Christian Busch is very knowledgeable and professional. He treats you as a person and cares about your issues. Highly recommend him.

Ella Smith

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.

If you’re interested in learning more about how your body works, and how to help it work better, I highly recommend booking with Ryan.


David McNiel

Great clinicians who are experts in their field! I would highly recommend to anyone in the Asheville area!

Kayla Mattison

Got into a car accident in March with some pretty bad whiplash and injuries. Dr.Ryan was the greatest. Very understanding and patient when it came to any of my needs or request. It has been a few months since my last visit and I have never felt any better, like nothing ever happened. Highly recommend reaching out and working with WildHawk!

Helen Tennyson

As a future PT student I got the pleasure of shadowing Ryan and Christian. They are so welcoming and knowledgeable. Over the two months that I worked with them I saw huge improvements in the clientele, multiple of them discharged within a few sessions. Go with WildHawk and you will be in good hands!

Banaka Okwuone

I can not say more great things about Kari!! If I could give 10 stars I would. Not only was Kari friendly and kind, she was knowledgeable and knows her stuff about Women’s health and specifically Pelvic floor therapy. She helps you get better faster. The clinic is extremely nice and clean! The staff is also friendly and welcoming! I HIGHLY recommend WildHawk Physical therapy!

Sina Ehsani

Feeling healthier than ever! Thank you Christian!

Jill Earwood

I have had a frozen shoulder issue for almost a year with severe pain and limited range of motion that greatly impacted my day to day life. I always try to find alternative ways of pain management without using prescription medication. I tried going to a Chiropractor with minimal help. I tried going to an Acupuncturist, which helped greatly with the pain, but still had limited range of motion. I then called Wildhawk Physical Therapy and spoke with Ryan. He was very professional and knowledgeable about Frozen Shoulder so I scheduled an appointment. I am so grateful to Ryan for his hands on care and instructions he gave me. In 7 visits with Ryan, I have improved the range of motion in my shoulder to about 90 % and feel confident that I will get to 100% soon if I continue to follow the exercises he gave to me.

Jacob Stucky

Christian Busch and the team at WildHawk Physical Therapy in Asheville, North Carolina are more than just your average Physical Therapy Clinic. In corporate driven clinics, the name of the game can, at times, be “churn and burn”….get through the greatest number of patients in the least amount of time, regardless if the quality of patient care suffers a bit. The members of this clinic will take the necessary time to genuinely listen to your story and work tirelessly to locate the source of your pain….once the problem has been identified, the team will work to develop a treatment plan that is specific to each individual to get them back to being pain free and doing all of the day-to-day activities that they love. In short, the number one priority of this clinic is patient care and they work to let that shine through in their actions day in and day out. If you are in pain, I highly encourage you to stop in and see the team at WildHawk Physical Therapy Clinic so that they can get you back on track to living a happy, healthy and pain free lifestyle!

Benazir Ramazanovna

Didn’t think damage I did to my ankle couple years ago was treatable. Christian. Proved me wrong. No more stiffness!!!

Scott Donat

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.
Scott Donat
The FootGuy

Jillian Galla

The team at WildHawk Physical Therapy is truly patient centric and brings high levels of compassion, empathy, and integrity to every interaction. Through thoughtful questioning and active listening, they are able to go beyond surface level treatment and help their patients live pain free.

Kimarie Machinga

I feel like I got more than I could have expected. The intake call was very thorough in gathering information and answering all questions and concerns. The office was welcoming and immediately knew who I was. The examination was so helpful. I gained a lot of insight about what was going on and how I can improve. There was no pressure or sales pitches which gained my trust. I highly recommend going!!!!

Jessica Meinch

During 5+ years of shoulder pain, I had been to chiropractors, an orthopedic surgeon, done acupuncture, an anti inflammatory diet, supplements, exercise, no exercise(resting), and massage with little to no relief. Decided to try PT and was pleasantly surprised to find relief after the initial visit! Ryan helped figure out exactly what exercises MY body needed. With weekly visits, I got stronger as the exercises changed depending on what was working and what wasn’t. I’m so thankful I tried “one more thing”. Ryan is professional, listens well, and explains things so I can understand. I highly recommend WildHawk PT!

Dottie Bozzetti

Very professional environment.
I went in uncertain and walked out with lots of knowledge.
Would highly recommend.

Sarah T

Highly recommend Dr Kari for pelvic floor PT.

Traci Van O

WildHawk Physical Therapy is an amazing place. Everyone is so friendly and helpful!

Madhav Kaushish

I injured my shoulder working out. It wasn’t getting better even months later – there was constant discomfort. I decided to consult with one of the physios at WildHawk over a year ago. The treatment and exercises fixed everything in a month. I’m back to normal and the discomfort hasn’t come back since.

Clayton Ryan

Christian at Wildhawk Physical Therapy has been very helpful to me. I had lower back pain and some weakening in my shoulder and arm but could never diagnose the origins of my pain. Christian knowingly diagnosed my challenges and taught me simple exercises that are effective in making my body function the way it should function. Pleasant and professional, I recommend Wildhawk Physical Therapy without doubt!

Maggie Lance Grucci

Christian was great to work with! His very knowledgeable when it came to implementing a variety of therapeutic modalities to address my shoulder pain. I felt relief after my first visit and not only did he help with my primary shoulder issue, he was able to help relieve associated headaches. I left every session feeling better and confident that the home exercise program he gave me would continue to help my progress!

Sarah Benoit

I feel so lucky to have found Wild Hawk PT on Facebook. The offered a really affordable first evaluation and my shoulder pain was reduced by 40% in my first visit. Ryan is kind and always willing to explain what we are doing in clear, easy to understand detail. I am doing a package of visits and they have worked with me on a payment schedule that is really helpful! Overall I am just delighted with the results and my experience. I look forward to going back. Also the exercises I have been given are really doable almost anywhere so working them into my schedule has been completely doable!

Adam Tripp

I had good success with Ryan’s help recovering from a shoulder injury. Appointments included a combination of massage, joint mobility expansion, and exercises. Ryan helped my make subtle posture changes that made a big difference in pain or discomfort I was feeling during certain movements.

Eli McEndarfer

Consistently excellent service.

Sara Kittleman

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!


Almon Cox

I first reached out to WildHawk Physical Therapy a couple months back. My left shoulder had been giving me issues for 6 weeks. I thought surgery was in my near future. My first consultation was great, Christian made a detailed plan for treatment and executed it well.

Maggie King

15/10 recommend!!! I was dealing with awful shoulder pain and really discouraged me from my benching. Also as a fitness instructor and personal trainer, super important for me to be able to demo. Did the movements they told me and sure as heck my shoulders have almost no pain at all after about 3 weeks. Thanks so much!!!

Matt Gardner

I called because of a dislocating shoulder. I wanted to explore other options other than surgery. Ryan was very helpful on the phone and scheduled me with Christian for the initial consultation. Christian has been working with me for 6 visits now and I have gained more mobility in my shoulder than I ever thought i could have gained (especially after “babying ” it for more than 20 years). These guys are awesome! I will be continuing treatment on a monthly basis now or as needed. I recommend them 100%!

Kristin Adkins

From my first phone call with Ryan, then my multiple sessions with Christian, I experienced the best in customer service, care, and compassion. This team is skilled and provide personalized treatments to your needs. I have made so much progress thanks to Christian. He has also prepared me to continue the exercises that he educated me too. I recommend their services without any hesitation. More than 5 STAR! Thank you!!!

Ginger Kowal

I had a great experience at WildHawk. Christian is not only skilled and knowledgeable, he is a great listener and communicator. Starting with a very thorough initial exam, I felt that Christian always paid close attention to what was going on with my body. I felt heard and listened to, which is a pretty great feeling to have from a doctor. After some targeted strength work I am back to running pain free! I’m very grateful!

Vonn Brestle

Christian has been so helpful in getting me back to where I want to be. I went in with tremendous shoulder pain, fearful of a potential referral for surgery and he was able to help me explore rehab of my injury instead. I am able to do more of the tasks I used to routinely do and get stronger every day.


The Therapists at WildHawk Physical Therapy impressed me with their knowledge and high level of professionalism. As a former competitive tennis player, I suffer from osteoarthritis in the 1st MTP joint (great toe). In the past, I had received steroid injections and one surgical procedure, with limited relief. WildHawk recommended stretching exercises and provided information regarding autologous PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and stem cell injections. Over time, these 2 treatments have provided substantial improvement of my symptoms allowing me to resume exercising and hiking without restriction and little pain. I highly recommend the Therapists at WildHawk Physical Therapy!

Loren Wooten

I’m a very active 47 year old who likes to run and mountain climb. I was having intense shoulder pain, especially at night making it hard to sleep and perform at my usual activity level. I’m not quick to ask for professional help but this issue was getting progressively worse. I reached out to WildHawk to see if they could help. Christian diagnosed the issue and after a month of bodywork,dry needling and an exercise regimen I’m practically pain free and sleeping much better. I would highly recommend WildHawk to anyone that is suffering with joint and muscle pain.

Carolyn Hoidal

Following a botched hysterectomy, I suffered from internal abdominal scar tissue and likely nerve damage. This issue compounded as surrounding muscles attempted to compensate for the damage pulling multiple joints out of alignment and increasing pain and trigger points in multiple areas. Ryan addressed my issues one on one with the skills of a specialist including a variety of techniques, exercises, manual therapy and modalities including dry needling. He is highly skilled, professional, punctual, and he treated me with compassion and understanding. My husband will start treatment with him soon and I will be back for more physical therapy as needed. As a 25 year Occupational Therapist, I give my professional recommendation that Ryan is one of the best physical therapists you will have the privilege of be treated by!

Adam Stein

Christian has been great to work with. As an older athlete he has really helped me to recover from injury and prevent new ones.

Emily Hyde

Thanks to Ryan and how he incorporates all the aspects of physical therapy into the sessions, from workouts, dry needling, to basic exercises that have helped retrain my muscles again, I have had extraordinary results . My shoulder injury was restricting me from doing a lot of activities to my best of my ability and thank goodness I found WILDHAWK and Ryan bc I can now honestly say I can have pain free days and my range of motion and strength is at point I never thought was possible. He has helped to alleviate severe discomfort and helped me get my muscle strength back and I couldn’t have done that on my own! I highly recommend their physical therapy services! They are just overall awesome and so is the environment!

Carolina Paredes

I am so glad and feel so fortunate to have found Christian and WildHawk Physical Therapy. I am a Personal Trainer and Coach and had been experiencing some discomfort and on-and-off pain in my hips. I did everything I knew how in order to make it better, but I could only get it to a point where it was manageable. I know well what happens when we ignore pain and the obvious mild signs that something isn’t right, so I began looking for help and this is how I found Christian. He responded to my request right away, he was super personable, and got me an appointment right away. He did some assessments and was able to find the root cause and helped me get the relief that I needed in 4 visits. It was amazing! I am so grateful and so happy I found them. Since then my husband began to see them too and is experiencing great amounts of relief from shoulder issues he was having. I highly recommend WildHawk PT. They will work with you. Don’t wait until things get really painful, preventive care is so important and can help you have relief sooner. Don’t wait, give them a call! They’ll take really great care of you.

John Gregory

The attention to detail and quality of care were top notch. Ryan had my knee feeling better after the first treatment and was very thorough in his assessment of it. He gave me plenty of exercises to do at home to help rehab it further as well. Can’t recommend this facility enough.

Lilia Guajardo

Very nice, professional and they know their work! Christian is our PT, awesome!

Michael Berlin

Top notch guys. I strongly recommend them! Very professional and have really helped me with my back pain and mobility. Five Stars all day!

Mark Denney

I hurt my shoulder about 6 months ago. A promotion (50% off) from WildHawk popped up on my Facebook feed, so I decided it was time to try PT. I met with Ryan who did some strength and range of motion testing on me. He was very pleasant and thorough. He told me what he thought the problem was and recommended some specific stretching and strengthening exercises all in the first visit. He has been following up via txt to check on my progress. I appreciate that he has not pressured me to come back for multiple follow up PT sessions. Very happy with Ryan’s expertise and customer service and feel that the value of what I received has exceeded what I paid. I will definitely return if I need any more expert PT help in the future.

Leslie Hipps

I landed on Wild Hawk Physical Therapy’s Facebook ad which offered a rate that I could afford for first visit! I live on a strict budget as a single mother! That’s why it is so important for me to share the level of care I received! The care was compassionate and I was treated the same as if I had the best insurance in town! I cannot wait to return! Let me tell you why! They help your whole body. It is my shoulder in particular that needed the acute attention. After a through strength test and assessment they performed dry needling and electro therapy! The dry needling is a life changer for me from this visit and past experience. If you are not aware I encourage you to ask! Instance muscle tightness relief! They didn’t just work on my shoulder they worked on my back (pain transfer), posture, alignment, and showed me rehab exercises for my shoulder! Care about yourself enough to make an appointment! Let these people help heal you and in the process show you their love! You can feel the true kindness and desire to help as soon as you walk in the door! Thank you Wild Hawk!

Chris Irvine

I would absolutely recommend this clinic. Christian is a fantastic therapist with great insight into the human body and patterns of pain and discomfort. He is thoughtful, patient and very comprehensive in his work. As a client you receive lots of 1:1 time devoted to your care and treatment. I will likely be a return client in the future, should I need more PT, and would encourage anyone I know to seek out their services.


The therapists at Wild Hawk Physical Therapy are honest, ethical and knowledgeable. I suffer from a stiff, sore neck and it has progressed as I age, at times causing problems with sleep. They prescribed 2 different stretches which reduce the pain and stiffness significantly and allows me to function better and sleep well. They were honest and said they need to be done daily which I do. Vibram toe shoes were also recommended which help with the pain in my large toe knuckle. My toe spread has also improved.

Chelsea Walton

I HIGHLY recommend Wildhawk! Ryan was very friendly, caring and knowledgeable. He helped me through multiple issues with easy, manageable exercises. I didn’t feel I was just another patient, rushed in and out like I have experienced at other places. Ryan took the time to listen to me and explained everything really well.


I had a wonderful experience at WildHawk! I came in with low back pain and Christian was able to identify my problem and crafted an exercise routine for me to do at home that has helped so much! I feel like they genuinely cared about my health and Christian actually checked in on me on his own time to make sure my home exercise regiment was going well. I highly recommend these therapists!

Mike Galyardt

Very easy to make an appointment. Small, locally owned business with excellent hands on care. Their YouTube channel was particularly helpful for remembering exercises they discussed with me in person. I had knee and ankle issues and they gave great advice on things I can do on my own to build up strength and help prevent injuries. Always available for a consultation or for any follow up questions. Highly recommended!

Scott Nelson

“Miracle Workers! Injured my core/back while kayaking. Gave me instant relief my first visit and coached me back to health through our one on one sessions. They even helped me discover the root of the problem and sent me with the cure to do at home. Fixed 5 years of chronic lower back pains. Wildhawk ROCKS!”

Bryan Gennett

“I saw the PT’s for several visits to help address my specific concerns for knee pain I had been experiencing for several months. A thorough evaluation lead to a quick and efficient treatment plan to address the underlying issues that were the cause of my symptoms. 5 stars over and over again. Highly recommended.”

G-Walker Performance

“Thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Wildhawk. Great guys, fantastic practitioners, and were able to get me back to lifting pain free!”

Allison Bruna


Emma Poodle

“I always have a great experience at Wild Hawk. The staff is knowledgeable and takes their time to go over every detail. I felt well taken care of. Highly recommend!”

Jessica Whaley

“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!”

Chris Holochak

“I had a great experience with WildHawk! I had a high ankle sprain that was causing issues throughout my leg. The staff was thorough and truly cared about fixing my issue. I highly recommend!”

Robert McCloskey

“The Physical Therapists at WildHawk are experts who provide first-class, compassionate care. I highly recommend them!”

“I went to help improve a chronic back problem. I was given the most thorough exam I have ever had. Using their simple App to remind me to do the exercises was extremely helpful. And the introduction of a simple support belt is a heaven send. I am now basically pain free. I highly recommend them!”

Rich Visnov

“Ryan Barragree is an amazing DPT. He treated me earlier this year for severe back and hip pain. His personal attention and commitment to my recovery was beyond my expectation. He provided hands-on manual therapy, spinal mobilization and manipulation, and a sport specific exercise regimen which got me back to pickleball, cycling, swimming and golf sooner than expected. Ryan personally following up on my progress on his own time, even after I was released from treatments. I highly recommend Wildhawk PT and Ryan.”

Carolyn Yaussy

“Christian is the best! I started seeing him after a severely dislocated shoulder left me in constant pain and unable to lift my arm above my waist. I was in that condition for two years after another PT was not able to help much. Christian’s knowledge, patience, and coaching restored my range of motion to nearly normal and significantly reduced my pain. This summer I was able to swim for the first time in 3 years – unthinkable (to me) when I first walked into his office. He gave me my arm back!”

Laura Langwell

“After experiencing hip and muscle pain on long walks and hikes for 5 months and having to slow my friends down so I could rest my hip, I went to my primary care doc who said I had bursitis and gave me a steroid shot. Nothing changed and I felt it got a lot worse. I found WildHawk PT and was very hesitant at first because I had never been to physical therapy before but the time they took with me to assess and figure out where my pain was coming from was amazing. The exercise program they gave me helped more than anything. Every time I go back for a treatment I get even more relief from the chronic pain. I am on my feet all day at work and I am feeling so much better. I will continue my treatments and my home exercise program and I just know I will be pain free very soon! Thank you so much for your attentiveness and professional atmosphere. Y’all rock!!”

Leticia Cordova

“I was very fortunate to have Christian as my PT! He is very knowledgeable, studies the origin of the pain/problem and comes up with the perfect plan. He knew just the right amount of work I needed to do when I came in with back pain. He helped me regain the ability I had before the injury and I was able to do the activities I like again. I would highly recommend his skills!”

Catherine B.

“Christian is extremely knowledgeable and his expertise and attention to detail , along with his ability to get to the root of the issue and formulate a plan is invaluable. As a massage therapist, I saw first hand the positive results he brought to improve the health of his clients. He makes a huge difference in their lives and I highly recommend him.”

Joseph Ciasullo

“Ryan was an amazing help. My whole time rehabbing my shoulder I felt hopeless with the way the doctor was handling it and my physical therapy was no better. Once Ryan worked with me I gained insight, hope, and finally some movement. This was in Florida with a large group. Glad to see him opening up his own thing in North Carolina but sad to watch him go. Highly recommend him and whatever he is on to next.”

Lachelle Spencer

“Ryan was my P.T a few years ago. He helped me to fully recover after I had Brostrom ankle surgery. Ryan was encouraging and upbeat in his work with me. It never mattered if the exercises and such that we were doing that day were painful or not (dry needling😲). Ryan was always able to find a way to make me smile or distract me from the pain. He was very professional, yet also very personable. I would definitely recommend Ryan.”

Anne Marie Sullivan

“Christian was the first physical therapist I saw after I had been seeing my previous PT for over 12 years. I knew I was in good hands when he made sure to look at my sciatica as a whole body issue instead of an isolated problem. I have seen him on and off since 2017 for a variety of issues (knee pain and migraines to name a couple) and his attention to detail and skills with soft tissue work and dry needling made a huge impact in my recovery. If you’re dealing with nagging injuries/pain, I would highly recommend Christian to help you get to the root cause and get relief.”

Stefanie Pupkiewicz

“I spent more than a decade being seen off and on for hip and shoulder pain. Prior visits to physical therapists didn’t improve my condition, and I assumed that the discomfort was just part of getting older. But, after an in-depth assessment by Christian and beginning PT exercises, I have had amazing improvement. My previous physical therapy visits usually involved a couple minutes of assessment at most. Christian spent time assessing my shoulder and hip to figure out what the problem really was and to give me the exercises to strengthen and improve them. I am continuing to see improvement not only in the pain itself but also in my running and weightlifting.”

Emily Goff

“Christian is great to work with! He helped me recover from an ACL surgery and I’m now able to do all of the activities that I was doing before I tore it. His knowledge of movement and encouragement definitely helped push me to a full recovery.”

Julie Moore

“Christian is extremely knowledgeable, fun, and an excellent therapist! He looks at the whole person to diagnose and isolate the root of the problem instead of just masking the symptoms. If other physical therapy has failed you in the past, Christian is the one to change things around for you!”

Melissa Krayca

“I have seen my fair share of therapists but Ryan has been the best. His dry needling skills really helped me. He is very knowledgeable and thorough as well as kind.”

Kim Sparks

“Christian healed a lingering 30-year-old hip injury that had never been treated but caused constant discomfort. Now I can lift heavy without pain!”

Tyler Zitka

“Christian is amazing to work with! He understands how to treat the real problems and not just the symptoms while making Physical Therapy knowledgeable and fun! Hands down the best PT to work with!”

G Van Land

“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.”

Tania Laveck

“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!”
