” I highly recommend her for any and all physical therapy needs! Over the past 25 years I’ve seen at least 11-12 different PT’s and Joy is absolutely the very best!! Musucloskeletal issues along with having both hips replaced, Joy has helped me manage the pain and improve my recovery. I’m so thankful for her compassionate and very experienced care! If you or a loved one needs physical therapy this is the place to go!” -C. W.
“My back pain is quite manageable and far less frequent. Your session have given me a new life!” – L. M.
“I very highly recommend Joy to anyone who thinks he or she may need some type of physical therapy treatment and/or is interested in having an overall PT assessment done.
Because of Joy Smith’s excellent physical therapy skills, vast PT knowledge and years of PT experience she was able to both identify the sources of the pain I was experiencing and also provide very successful physical therapy treatments that eliminated my pain.
Though Joy’s main specialty is the treatment of scoliosis, she was definitely able to help me a great deal regarding all of the fall-related injuries I had sustained to my hands, elbows and shoulders. Prior to my initial appointment with Joy Smith at Joy of Therapy I had been examined by several doctors to whom I had been referred to regarding a palpable physical issue I had sustained as a result of a pretty hard fall. They ran a number of diagnostic tests and said that even though they were physically able to detect the palpable issue, they were unable to identify the source of this issue. Thus, they were unable to treat this issue.
I then scheduled an appointment with Joy Smith at Joy of Therapy and I am extremely glad I did. Joy was the only medical person who examined me who was able to successfully identify the injury that was causing the palatable physical issue. In addition, Joy was also able to identify the injuries that were
causing my other fall-related injury pains which I had been experiencing during the two months just prior to my initial appointment with Joy.
P.S. Joy I really appreciate and am so very grateful for how quickly you were able to thoroughly identify and successfully treat the sources of the pain I had been experiencing just prior to my initial appointment with you and also for the physical therapy treatments you are currently providing to me. I feel sure Joy that your patients very much appreciate all of the help, advice, compassion, kindness and
the enjoyment you always provide to each of your patients!”- J.S.
“the test you did of how straight my spine is at this point just confirmed how big a difference you’ve made with my back since I’ve started seeing you. So, yes, I’m very grateful and want you to know that I admire how you tackle any problem with alacrity and skill which always benefits me greatly. I walk out of your office feeling much better and happier! Thank you for always teaching me new exercises and techniques to help my back and other physical problems. ” – M.C.
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.
After just a few visits my pain is something of the past! Joy was able to help me turn my life from almost constant pain to being able to function in a manner I thought I would never experience again. Now I don’t wake up each morning hoping I can make it through the day.
“Joy offered instant relief to my hamstring! My leg had the feeling of an over-stretched rubber band. I could not get my legs to relax in order to stretch and loosen my hamstring. When Joy “opened up” the nerve, my leg instantly calmed down. I had a feeling of success. I now am able to stretch as I had in the past. I didn’t realize that I had to allow my leg to slowly progress, but it was so worth the wait.”
Joy was able to diagnose an injury that I’d been ignoring as more serious than I realized. The MRI confirmed her exact diagnosis. She also does more treatment of pain than recommendation of repetitive exercises which I really liked.
Joy is absolutely wonderful. She has helped me and my family achieve results that are nothing short of amazing!
Joy is a Miracle worker and just knows what’s needed to take the pain away. Appreciate how Joy is focused on my PT needs.

I’ve been treating with Joy for over a year and a half and she has been the most effective physical therapist I have used, by a large margin. Her intuitiveness is unsurpassed and enables her to quickly target and identify the problem areas, and her experience allows her to dial in and resolve them, whether they are chronic or acute in nature. As a competitive triathlete, I put my body through a lot of physical stress but thanks to Joy’s treatment and expertise, I’ve been able to stay healthy and continue to compete in many physically-demanding endurance events. I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone seeking a physical therapist!
