Dr. Cruz is a miracle worker. I came into Pursue PT after an ankle sprain hoping to get back to very high level of volleyball before my fast approaching season started. With the help of Dr. Cruz, I have met my goals earlier than expected and have been feeling stronger than ever. His impressive academic background and thorough approach to rehabilitating my injury gives me complete faith in him to treat any ailment I can imagine. The clinic is always spotless and my impossible schedule is always somehow accommodated for. I look forward to referring all of my colleagues and teammates to Pursue PT. Thanks again, Dr. Cruz!

After almost a year post surgery from a torn tendon in my ankle and still having pain I looked to Pursue for help. Dr. Brandon Cruz was amazing to work with, he was so wise and knew exactly what to do to get to the results I desired! His manipulations were the best I’ve ever recieved (and as a dancer I have been to many PTs in the past). After just 5 sessions, the pain is completely gone even after performing en pointe! All in all a fabulous experience at Pursue!! Additionally their performance trainer Anton is knowledgeable and excellent at his craft but moreover he is caring and gets results! He has helped me develop fitness goals, conquer them and reach for more! Whether you come here for a PT treatment, performance training or both, you will NOT be disappointed!

I spent several weeks at a different PT location and decided to give Pursue PT a visit. I accomplished more in the first session at Pursue than weeks at the other place. Immediately, you can tell you are in good hands when you walk through the door. A personable and professional staff that takes the time to listen to your symptoms and develop a treatment plan specifically for you. The communication within the office is second to none which translates to consistent treatment and faster results. Whatever your injury, whatever your motivation: Pursue PT is a must.

I do powerlifting and came to Dr. Cruz with both a knee issue and a partially torn labrum in my shoulder. Right away I was struck by the fact that instead of most physical therapists who just mindlessly give you exercises to do, he took time to troubleshoot what hurt and find what things fixed the pain.
