In 2008, he received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of South Carolina where he also published his dissertation:  “The change in the diffusion of water in normal and degenerative lumbar intervertebral discs following joint mobilization compared to prone lying”  to study the effects of manual therapy in the treamtent of low back pain using new DWI technology with MRIs. He then went on to complete a Post-Doctoral Residency in Orthopedic Physical Therapy at Florida Hospital, where he furthered his specialized training and published research: “Application of Regional Interdependence in a 20-Year-Old Male Baseball Player with Recurrent Non-Specific Low Back Pain:  A Retrospective Case Report”, highlighting a new treatment concept of how impairments in other neighboring joints influence the primary complaint of pain.

Dr. Miller’s special interests include the treatment of cervical and low back pain, spinal disorders, sport injuries, manual therapy, golf related injuries, running injuries, and solving complex patient cases that has failed other treatment approaches.  He prides himself on getting his patients better faster, by using the most current evidenced-based interventions, and doing what is best for the patient’s goals.

“I believe in truly solving the problem that is the root cause of your pain, using the best possible treatment, and getting you better faster in fewest amount of visits needed.  This is the prinicple that I built Pursuit Physical Therapy on and what continues to make us successful.”

His core belief is that it is not about the physician, the physical therapist, or the insurance company: it is about what is truly best for the patient.  Dr. Miller lives in Orlando, FL, and enjoys promoting a healthy lifestyle, running, golfing, reading, and spending time with his better half Haley and 8 month old daughter Sienna
