Physical Therapist

Dr. Walter M. Young IV, PT, DPT is the quintessential journeyman, working his way from western Michigan, to a Landscape Architecture Degree from Ball State University, to a career as a Golf Course Architect in Southern Pines, NC, prior to finding his passion in coaching people to a healthier life through Olympic Lifting and Crossfit. From there he worked his way to Western Carolina University where he earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy Degree in 2016. Since graduating, Walter moved to Asheville, but began his career in Hickory, NC at Frye Regional Medical Center where he saw wide range of patients, from low back pain to Parkinson’s Disease to spinal cord injuries and amputees.
