Tara is the most amazing physical therapist I've seen. I've been playing soccer my whole life and her input has greatly increased my performance and allowed me to recover from serious injuries to my ankles and groin. Thank you so much for all you have done for me Tara! Your work directly helps me and my team to fight human trafficking through soccer! 🔥⚽❌

Tara is a true professional as well as a very understanding, patient and kind PT. DEFY WAS AND IS A GAME CHANGER FOR ME. I HAVE REGAINED NOT JUST MY BALANCE BUT MY CONFIDENCE. I will recommend Defy to anyone, those who need help in balancing to prevent falls as well as those who have any Physical problems that can be treated with excellent Physical Therapy. Defy is five star all the way.

Kelsey is a wonderful therapist. I’m about to turn 30 and started feeling a slight discomfort in my lower back. I decided to come in and see her and one minute into the session she saw able to see hereditary flaw in my back. I am now on back strengthening workouts. A week later my posture is showing improvement. I am super happy she identified this now before it was to late to fix. Kelsey Is very professional with amazing positive vibes. I would not go to anyone else. I highly recommend her.

I having been working with Kelsey Zamoyski for the past month after coming home from an 8 day hospital stay. I had a very difficult time walking and had balance issues. She designed a program of balance training and exercises to strengthen my core. Each week she adds more work to improve my balance and core muscles. The results have been remarkable. Kelsey has been a godsend in my recovery back to good health. I highly recommend Defy Therapy and Wellness.

Defy Therapy and Wellness is top notch. Not only do they work with clients one on one, they take the time to examine the body as a whole. Tara is amazing: She really gets to the root of the problem and sends a realistic at home plan that really works. Kelsey, the owner, is super helpful and they enforce all Covid-19 mandates. Wish I could give them 10 stars. Highly recommend.

Probably the best Physiotherapist in Florida. Kelsey has changed my life. When I met Kelsey I suffered of serious shoulder pain after an injury in my teenage years that had never been properly addressed. She took the time to analyze my posture and create a plan for me that slowly has helped me recover greatly. She is an expert and shoulder injuries as well as hand but she has also been helping my wife with her lower back pain which has completely disappeared after years of being chronic. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to change their posture, relief their back pain or improve their overall well being.

After visiting several doctors and physiotherapist both in Europe and in the US I met Kelsey at DEFY therapy and she changed my life. Kelsey taught me how to stand correctly, do exercises to improve my posture, gave me several different treatments in order to ail my back pain which I have had for at least 10 years. Ever since I started my program with her not only my posture has improved but I feel stronger and the pain has completely left my body. I am so happy I met her, She's incredibly knowledgeable and can definitely help with any sort of physical condition that you might have. She has even helped me fix my lower back pain which at a certain point I thought I would have needed surgery for.

Best therapists ever! From almost not being able to move my right arm, to going back to my weight lifting exercises, to my yoga and to do everything I want in only a couple of months! They have all the Covid-19 precautions needed and they take excellent care of there patients. They also have the best cupping sessions! I really recommend.
Karin Dunne
Kelsey and Tara are the absolute best! They really know their stuff and work with you to address your problems in order to give you a better quality of life. They've helped me a lot with my shoulder issues and I know I can go back to them whenever I have new questions. It is clear that they care a lot about their patients! I highly recommend them!
Shelly Askenazi
I've been to other physical therapist in the past, but when I began my therapy with Kelsey I realized I've never been to physical therapy. Defy Therapy and Wellness is truely a godsend!! Kelsey loves what she does and the results are amazing!!
Bruce McIntosh
Kelsey is the most knowledgeable shoulder therapist I have found in Miami. When I made my first appointment, my shoulder (torn rotator cuff, torn labrum and previously separated AC joint) was basically in pain and non-functional. After a strict regimen of rehab for several months, with no anti-inflammatories, my shoulder slowly came around. I can now swim, paddle and workout again. Words cannot express my gratitude. If you're in pain don't waste any time, the sooner you get an appointment the sooner you'll be on the road to recovery.
Derek Koegel
Very clean inside and lovely staff. Tara is a quality physical therapist who has helped me recover from my auto accident. I highly recommend Defy therapy for their professionalism, strong work ethics, and overall cleanliness.

Amazing Therapy - Have worked with several people on my back, and Kelsey / Defy is the best - got me off my back (literally) and back in the gym. Incredible rehab and physical therapy work - Go to Defy Therapy & Wellness - you won't regret it!
Adrian Fischer
Kelsey is wonderful and very caring. She rehabilitated my shoulder which was badly torn and is now working on my other one and my hands. I would definitely recommend them for any therapy.

These girls are top notch. They do a wonderful job of looking at what causes the problem and not just addressing the symptoms. I even got my 70 year old father to go and he hates therapy but loves Defy. If you have pain or want to prevent injury go see them today.
Kelsey and Tara are great at what they do and very caring as well.
