I learned about Joy from my trainer. I had been experiencing pain in my right leg for almost a year with little or no relief. I have severe osteosporis, arthritis and scar tissue from an old back surgery. After trying other physical therapy, pain pills, anti-inflammatories, and cortisone injections in my lower back I figured I had nothing to lose.
