Ryan McFarland

DPT, CSCS Physical Therapist

I was born and raised in the small town of Morganton, NC, where I lived until attending Appalachian State to pursue a degree in Exercise Science. After graduating, I moved to Ireland with my partner to work abroad, travel, and create new memories. Once returned to the US and a few moves later, I found myself in Charlotte, NC while attending Wingate University for my DPT degree, graduating with honors in 2023. I love the profession of physical therapy because I believe it is a rewarding way of helping people not only heal injuries, but improve overall health, wellness, and quality of life. Origin Rehab uniquely prioritizes values, fostering well-being for all with one-on-one, individualized care planning. Providing undivided attention and seeing people as a whole, not a chart, aligns with my own values.

I wish to help add true quality to life with Origin, allowing us to become stewards of the community. I enjoy clinically treating people who have complex situations, from headaches, back pain, to balance concerns, or any combination in between allowing me to help those who may otherwise have struggled to find relief.

“”In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years” -Abraham Lincoln

In my free time I enjoy hiking, paddle-boarding, reading, traveling, and learning to play the piano. Favorite: books/movies: Fantasy/fiction Food: Indian cuisine Season: spring Pets: cats Pastime: enjoying the outdoors

Patient Testimonials

Ryan was extremely helpful in getting me out of pain and able to sleep at night. I worked with two larger organizations with little success before I found Origin Rehab.   William

“I came to Ryan a tense broken mess, and he taught me to stretch, change the way I did squats and lunges, and dry needled my tense muscles. After that day I walked away a new man. I my pain subsided, and I got a large increase in lower body mobility! Thanks to Ryan I can workout, work construction, and walk up the stairs again! 100% Recommend”   Ryan
