We Specialize in Getting Results

1on1 Physical Therapy is a private, therapist owned practice.  We aren't limited by policies when developing your individualized treatment program.  We are patient focused, not volume focused.  As a result, when you come to 1on1, you get one hour of hands-on, one-on-one treatment.


We understand what you’re going through, therefore, we do whatever it takes to get you back in action. We offer flexible hours and in most cases, we can see you within 24 hours. Also, we are in-network specialists with nearly all insurance companies.


We are experts in helping people understand what’s keeping them from recovering from pain or injury. Most people begin to feel better within the first visit!

What Our Patients Are Saying

Myofascial Release Therapy For Shoulder Pain Asheville NC

"Ryan has been a life-saver! My weekly PT visits have changed my life - my horrible shoulder pain is almost gone, I highly recommend him!"

Julie S.

Therapy For Migraine Asheville NC

"I was referred to Ryan by a friend to help me with my migraine headaches. Through his one on one care he has helped me greatly reduce my migraines in frequency and severity. I have had migraines since the age of 8 and have tried numerous medications and other treatments over the years to help me. Thanks to Ryan I am having the longest stretches between headaches I have ever had and am still seeing improvement. I have also gained mobility in my neck and could not be happier with my results."

Jeff T.

Dry Needle Therapy Asheville NC

"Ryan is amazing. He is more than a physical therapist, he does deep tissue work that really helped some chronic pain issues. I was amazed by the relief that I got after just a few short times with Ryan. I would highly recommend him for your physical therapy needs."

About Our Practice

Frustrated with the limitations and inconsistency of treating patients in a large physical therapy clinic, Dr. Fenton decided to open his own practice.  Operating as a small private practice allows the doctors at 1on1 Physical Therapy to provide consistent treatment, one patient at a time. 


When you choose 1on1, you will see the same doctor at each visit.  We will provide you with our direct attention and focus, which helps us understand your needs, challenges, and goals while also getting to know you better.

Balance Training

Approximately one-third of people over the age of 65 and almost half of the people over the age of 80 will fall at least once this year. Falls can lead to injuries that significantly decrease your quality of life and restrict you from leading an active and independent lifestyle.

Orthopedic Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is any form of hands-on treatment that is designed to help a part of the body function better. Injury, disease, swelling, or surgery often leaves joints and soft tissue inflamed and painful with limited flexibility and mobility. 

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy often referred to as myofascial release, involves the application of gentle yet firm pressure to specific areas along the body, known as pressure or trigger points. This pressure is provided by the hands of physical therapist trained in pressure point release.
