On Friday, February 3rd, 2023, I had the opportunity to interview two Zionites and their essential contributions to their community. Dr. Ryan Hubbard, along with his brother, Mr. Johnathan K. Hubbard are the founders of the Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center, located in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Center offers a variety of therapeutic remedial exercises and programs to promote physical therapy to individuals from all walks of life. I was privileged to bear witness to some of the apparatus used for the physical therapy sessions. The Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center boasts of several certified Physical Therapists with many years of experience.
Located in the prestigious Pineville area, the Center conveniently is innovating various programs in alliance with other businesses/groups to promote various health-based initiatives to serve the community-at-large. Dr. & Mr. Hubbard’s vision entails a healthier society where physical therapy services increase the Patient’s overall outlook on life.
Native Charlotteans, the Hubbard’s were actively proud member of the Marvin AME Zion Church located in Waxhaw, NC. They received their educations at Charlotte Christian School and Davidson College. Johnathan has a vast financial background for Wachovia, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and currently serves as a complex director leading the wealth-management for Ameriprise, based out of Chicago. Dr. Hubbard completed medical school at the Georgetown University School of Medicine, followed by training in physical-medicine and rehabilitation for four years at the world-reknowned Mayo-Clinic. Dr. Hubbard has also worked with Dr. James Andrews and the world-reknowed Andrews-Institute in Minneapolis, MN. Dr. Hubbard currently serves as a practicing physician in Sports-Medicine in the Washington D.C. area.
“One of the main ideas is to put the Patients first, meet the Patients where they are, and help them get back to a functional place” - Dr. Ryan Hubbard
Dr. & Mr. Hubbard’s primary vision is to provide the physical therapeutic services needed at a more sufficient rate, providing additional options were rehabilitation can be more affordable for certain groups of people, and address an issue that continues to affect African-American Communities and other marginalized communities of color.
