“My experience has been incredible and worth every cent – they are incredible professionals, their skill-levels are UNMATCHED and they change lives every day! Believe it. Go there. Get your life back too!”
“Dr. Michael Fabrick brought me back from facing serious spinal fusion surgery and got my pain level down from a 9 to a 0 in less than 6 weeks. I had debilitating sciatic nerve pain caused by a spinal fracture and protruding discs between L3-L4 and L4-L5. I am a tennis player and could not enjoy the activity I love the most, nor could I even stand or walk for more than 2 minutes at a time. I had undergone months of pain mgt. and “one size fits all” physical therapy at a well-known hospital system in Orlando to no avail, and was advised I needed spinal fusion back surgery… Now I have my life back!!! I am lifting weights and ready to start tennis again. Words do no justice in describing what Dr. Fabrick and Pursuit Therapy have done for my mind, body and spirit. Not only am I pain free now, but I have a maintenance plan for the future so I can avoid ever being back in the same predicament again. My experience has been incredible and worth every cent. I assure you that the testimonials on this website are all true – they are incredible professionals, their skill-levels are UNMATCHED and they change lives every day! Believe it. Go there. Get your life back too!“
“What makes this practice so unbelievably different is high quality and one-on-one treatment time!”
Julie C .
“…Ron’s office was totally different. He did a thorough evaluation of my pain and what might be the cause of the problem. What makes his practice so unbelievably different is the one-on-one treatment time. Ron literally is working with you for an hour and only you! At the previous group I went to, the therapist saw 3-4 people at a time. With Ron, I was the only patient and his focus was 100% on getting me back on my feet (pun intended!)…In one month I went from a feeling of despair (due to poor treatment practices of previous therapist) to knowing that I would become pain free… In addition to the quality and expert care I received, Ron is a very positive, encouraging, and (sometimes) funny guy! Haha! 5 stars all the way!“

Don’t Take Our Word For It…See What Others Are Saying About Their Results And Experience
“I thank God every single day. Ron has changed my life. Literally. I’m totally off all of the Gabapentin…I can’t believe how great it feels to be normal again without headaches”
Sallie E .
“I’ve suffered with severe headaches/migraines for over 10 years. I’ve been to 3 different chiropractors and 2 neurologists and an oral surgeon. I’ve been to the ER and had multiple MRIs and CTs. I’ve tried several different diets and supplements. Not to mention all of the different drugs the Drs have tried on me. Some of them with terrible side effects. I’ve been through PT and massage therapy. I’ve even tried spinal decompression and acupuncture. I felt like my life was essentially over. I couldn’t even go on vacation without losing whole days to the headaches and vomiting. There was no rhyme or reason. No real triggers. I would get them at all times of the day and night. I was so depressed.
Then I read a book about a new therapy called dry needling. I googled it and happened upon Pursuit Therapy with Dr. Ron.
I thank God every single day. Ron has changed my life. Literally. I’m totally off all of the Gabapentin. And I went from taking 2-3 Imitrex a week to only 4 in TEN weeks.
The clinic is very clean, and everyone is very professional. And it’s one on one treatment. No switching to different therapist or sharing a therapist with several different patients at the same time.
It took about 4 weeks to start breaking the cycle. After that there was steady progress. I can’t believe how great it feels to be normal again. I’m telling you that your health is your life. You owe it to yourself to live life to the fullest and you can’t do that while in pain. Pursuit Therapy can help. I can’t recommend them enough. The difference in my life is incredible.“
“I am very pleased to share my success story because it has surpassed my expectations and I want others to receive the same treatment!…Dr. Jess is the best!”
“I am very pleased to share my success story because it has surpassed my expectations and I want others to receive the same treatment to improve their quality of life! After my sports career ended, I followed up by umpiring Baseball for 30 years and wanted to continue to have a more than average physical capability in my ensuing years. I wanted to go to a place where I could get real results and wanted the best possible care. What made Pursuit different were: Full time attention from Dr Jess for the entire session – no substitutes and no down-time, Total dedication by Dr Jess to my full recovery, Constant encouragement to perform and do my home, Immediate attention when I wasn’t performing correctly, No “sugar-coating” on my progress but rather true and honest feedback, An open environment for asking questions and getting helpful recommendations, and Dr Jess’s constant confidence building.
After every session I was eager to return home and work the exercises prescribed by Dr Jess. This is key to getting the results you want from therapy. Bottom line -you want to be pain free and do all the things someone my age expects to do to have quality of life. To others considering Pursuit, I would tell them don’t agree to their program until you can say “I will follow the program and do my part after hours”. If you can, Pursuit will get you pain free!
P.S. DR. JESS IS THE BEST!!!“
“I started with chronic pain of a level 8 with 3 pain medications and now I am down to a 0-2 at most without medications!”
Evelyn O .
“I have been battling chronic neck pain due to herniated discs after a car accident from 9 years ago. After years of seeking relief through physical therapy, 2 neck surgeries, and conventional treatment with prescription medications with no results, I complained to my son how frustrated I was and how the relief I get was minimal if at all sometimes. My son who is also a physical therapist recommended that I consult with Ron Miller, DPT, OCS since he had done an internship with him. Reluctantly I went with the hopes that this time would be different. I was not disappointed! The very first visit I was evaluated and afterwards my first treatment I experienced significant relief; something that I have never experienced before.
Dr. Miller recommend an extended program since my chronic pain was severe due to years of enduring non-stop pain. He took the time to evaluate my case and follow up to see if there was improvement in my condition. He never gave up and tried different approaches if there was no relief. After 3 weeks of treatment I was able to relinquish 3 types of medications that only gave me minimal relief and kept me sleepy. I am virtually pain free without taking medications. I feel alert and am able to do mostly anything without experiencing severe pain. I was a none believer after so many physical therapists and doctors had failed to find the cause of my pain and had me doing the wrong exercises for my pain. I highly recommend Ron! He will thoroughly evaluate you and follow up to make sure you are feeling relief. If you are suffering with chronic pain, he will definitely work with you, listen to your concerns, and then follow up with you to make sure of your progress. I started with a pain of a level 8 with pain medications and now I am down to a 0-2 at most without medications. Ron has also given me the exercises to do to continue to maintain my results. Best decision I ever made! Thanks Ron! I have normal life again!“
“I was especially impressed with the 1-on-1 care!”
“I originally sought out a Physical Therapist to help me with symptoms resembling an L4/L5 herniation and I found Trey via some research online. I started with fairly severe symptoms down my leg and wanted guidance and improvement so that I could resume going back to the gym 4/5 times a week. After an MRI revealed that it wasn’t due to a herniated disc – Trey still managed to set me up with a program that relieved the pain and was genuinely interested in my progress. Although from time to time I experience flare ups Trey gave me the tools I need to manage and suppress the issues I experience. I definitely recommend Pursuit to anyone concerned about their injury. I was especially impressed with the 1-on-1 appointments with Trey and his attentiveness even after hours when I texted with a concern regarding my injury. Happy to say I’m back in the gym moving towards full recovery!
“I no longer suffer from those debilitating headaches and I feel better than I have in years!”
Kacie R .
Lawyer – Orlando, FL
“Prior to scheduling an appointment at Pursuit Physical Therapy I was having terrible, incapacitating headaches that could not be relieved. My headaches had been misdiagnosed as migraines and despite being prescribed a migraine medication, my headaches persisted and were only temporarily relieved by the medication. Seeing no relief from the medication and suspecting that these in fact were not migraines at all, I decided to schedule an appointment at Pursuit to see if there was anything they could do to help with my headaches. From day one Dr. Ron was so kind and caring and truly wanted to get to the bottom of what was causing my headaches. Dr. Ron quickly and properly diagnosed my headaches as stemming from an issue in my neck and upper traps and was able to completely resolve my headaches. I no longer suffer from those debilitating headaches and I feel better than I have in years. Thank you Dr. Ron for all your amazing work!“
“Michael’s care was way better than any other PT I’ve worked with…and this allowed me to compete at my highest level!“
WTA Professional Tennis Player
“Michael is incredible to work with. He is extremely dedicated and hard working and that’s why I chose to work with him. He rehabbed my wrist and elbow for the last year and a half and I am very happy with the results. Each day we had a plan and a goal that we achieved. His care was way better than any other PT I’ve worked with. I saw results very quickly and got better each week. This allowed me to compete at my highest level. He is very professional and will fix anything that is hurting. I highly recommend him to anyone experiencing an injury”
“After 15 years…All I can say is the pain is TOTALLY gone…and I feel great!”
“I can’t recommend Ron highly enough. He is professional, thorough, intuitive and very personable. I saw him initially for “frozen shoulder” that I developed from a slip and fall on a hard floor. He very patiently worked me through the process and I received a full healing of that painful mess. I have NO residual limitations while is great as I am a yoga instructor and was concerned about that.
Additionally, while seeing Ron, we also diligently worked on severe lower back pain that I had been suffering with for over 15 years. All I can say is the pain is TOTALLY gone.. I feel great and am able to be fully engaged in every aspect of my life now, PAIN FREE. I am thankful that I chose to work with Ron. He is a true blessing!!“
“I now wake up with no pain in my leg!…which hasn’t happened since last November”
“I moved to Florida from Baltimore in May and was still in pain from last November. I had seen other Physical Therapists in Maryland and they all basically did the same thing. Cracked and popped and gave me “homework”. They didn’t listen to what I was actually saying. I did some research and found Pursuit PT. I am always a skeptic and figured all of the reviews couldn’t be true but I was still experiencing pain and needed help. I was introduced to Trey Martin, who would turn out to be my Dr. He did something that no one else would do, listen to what was actually going on and then put a plan in place that would slowly but surely lessen my pain until I didn’t feel it anymore. Of course the work was hard and there were weeks where I felt I was going backwards, but that was just my body trying to fight the natural instinct of just being in pain. Trey was there every step of the way and made it seem like my success was his success. This is something that is so valued because you feel as though you are not just another patient. Your feelings (pain and otherwise) are taken into account and that matters. I now (after 8 weeks of rugged PT and doing the work at home) wake up with no pain in my leg, which hasn’t happened since last November. If you are looking for a place that wants you to feel better because they want to help and actually listen to you, then you need to go to Pursuit Physical Therapy. If you are looking for cookie cutter and to be treated like, “just another patient”, then don’t go here lol. Trey and everyone there are awesome and I wouldn’t be pain free without them!!!“
“I honestly owe it to Ron for giving me my life back…and he made me feel like I was the only person in the world that he was focused on”
“I decided to see Ron at Pursuit Physical Therapy due to symptoms I had been experiencing from a neck injury I incurred six years previously. The symptoms continued to get worse over that six-year span to the point where it was impossible to enjoy a normal life. After countless hours and appointments spent with physicians all over the state each with their own opinions about what was going on with me, and all of them failing to help or even be able to create a rational results-based plan, I had virtually given up, and accepted that fact that I would be dealing with these symptoms for the rest of my life.
My wife spent a lot of time on the internet trying to find a results based physical therapist in the central Florida area. At the time I was at the point where I felt like this was pointless exercise and never thought I’d be able to live a normal life again. When she came across Ron’s website and showed me some of his videos I actually perked up and something said to me “this guy is going to help me”. His videos explained exactly what pain and symptoms I was experiencing, the cause of those symptoms, and what programs he put in place for his patients to address and fix the root causes of the symptoms. Most of the physicians I had seen previously wanted to put me on medications. New meds, old meds, and some even prescribed me experimental medications to try and get rid of my debilitating migraines etc. When I spoke to them about my situation, I could tell none of them really seemed to be listening but rather just wanted to put me on something and see their next patient.
That was how Ron was so different. During my initial evaluation Ron made me feel like I was the only person in the world that he was focused on, and really dug into the root causes of my symptoms. He showed a side of himself that I’ve only grown to know more, he truly cares about getting his patients pain free. He asked in depth questions, brought out medical books that showed exactly what was going on, and he explained to me that it was going to be a long road, but he knew he could reduce my pain. He told me how he was going to go about this, and for the first time, I knew I was seeing someone who had a plan that made sense. This was truly one of the happiest moments in my life.
Within eight sessions I felt like a completely different person and was even able to go on a vacation with my wife and her friends and enjoy my time. After being with Ron for around a year now, I would say that I am back to 90-95% of myself, and that almost all my symptoms have dissipated through stretching, strengthening, getting back to exercising on my own, and the dry needling has helped exponentially as well for my headaches and migraines. Obviously, most of Ron’s patients won’t need to see him as long as I have, but before I went to Ron, I would experience debilitating head flairs and migraines lasting for days as a result from trying to perform simple tasks such as speaking, opening any type of door, picking up any item with any sort of weight to it, watching or working on any type of screen, driving, standing from a seated position, walking, walking up and downstairs, and I also had a terrible case of vertigo that I had been dealing with for 3 years. Now my vertigo is gone, I’m driving on my own, I don’t even think about picking up items with any heft or weight to them, I don’t think about opening and closing doors, and I’m even back to running between 20-25 miles a week, and exercising at home. If anyone in my life, whether they be friends, family, or even casual acquaintances needed any type of physical therapy whether it be minor or major I wouldn’t let them go anywhere besides Pursuit Physical Therapy.
I honestly owe it to Ron for giving me my life back, and he happens on top of everything to be one of the most genuine and kind people I have ever met in my entire life. I consider him a true friend.“
“Dr. Trey Martin is the only correct choice for a time and costly efficient recovery for athletes!”
“Are you an athlete worried about picking the right physical therapist or costs of PT? Dr. Trey Martin PT is the only correct choice for a time/cost efficient recovery. In March 2021, I sustained an AC joint separation playing rugby requiring full shoulder reconstruction surgery. My endeavors to become a pro rugby player seemed to be stripped away in an instant. Fearing I may never play rugby again, I searched for the best option for physical therapy. Through mutual work and Trey’s expertise and constant encouragement, he had my shoulder with sharp constant pains recover back to being pain free and back on the rugby field in three months and benching 225 and deadlifting 405 four months post-surgery. My aspirations of becoming a professional rugby player are back on track entirely because of the work Trey put into healing and supporting me. After a month of PT, I was already 2 months ahead of schedule. For any athletes worrying their injury has ended their career, please consult with Dr. Trey Martin and get back on the road to pro!“
“There is no better investment to make than in your health!”
“I found Michael at a rough time post injury. He was extremely patient, kind, and understanding during our initial consultation. From there, he made it clear how he was going to help me, and how he was going to measure my progress from week to week. He listened to my concerns, no matter how small. I truly can’t thank Michael enough for his persistence and personalized approach. I believe that your health is the most important thing you have, so there is no better investment to make than in your health. Michael and the entire Pursuit team were instrumental in getting me back to normal and helping me live pain free. Truly a great business and a great doctor!“
“Do you believe in miracles?…I was pain free after two treatments! My back feels better than it has felt in at least a decade.”
“Do You Believe in Miracles?? Over the course of my life I have suffered from a “bad back”. Most of the time I would do something that would tighten up my back and then it would put me out of commission. I would go to a doctor and they would give me the regular regimen of muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatories. After about a week of that I would be back in action.
In November 2020 I hurt my back while trying to move my daughter’s dresser away from the wall. This time the regular regimen didn’t help. I was in pain every day. I went to a neurosurgeon and he confirmed through an MRI that I had a herniated disk at L5 which was pressing against my sciatica. This was causing pain in my back, buttock and back of leg. Also “Pins and needles” feeling in my legs and feet. After a couple of months the symptoms became less severe. Although I could no longer go to the gym I was able to get through the days albeit with some stiffness and pain. In August 2021 while helping my son practice before baseball tryouts I hurt my back again, this time I felt worse than before. I decided to try and find a physical therapist as a last resort before surgery. Luckily I found Pursuit and specifically Dr. Trey Martin. From the evaluation I realized that this place was different than anywhere else, as I was the only patient there with Trey the entire time. During that same eval session Dr. Martin let me know that we would also be doing treatment that day and that he was sure that he could have me pain free in 2 weeks. I wanted so badly to believe him, but based on how I felt I thought it wasn’t possible.
I have never been so happy to be wrong! I was pain free after two treatments which was one week! I am happy to report that I am not only pain free, but my back feels better than it has felt in at least a decade. I am back in the gym and also able to ride my bike and go for runs. I can get out of bed in the morning with no pain or stiffness. I thought all of this was no longer a possibility for me. If you are suffering from back issues I would highly recommend you do yourself a favor and try out Dr. Trey Martin at Pursuit.”
