What We Treat


“The Joy of Therapy helps kids, teens and adults with scoliosis, posture issues, muscle and joint pain using movement and breath through highly skilled, hands-on and virtual physical therapy to restore strength and decrease pain.”

This is a scoliosis-specialty, private physical therapy practice offering direct access with licenses in both Florida and Georgia.

You can receive a thorough evaluation and treatments for up to 30 days in Florida and 21 days in Georgia without a doctor’s prescription.

Once the threshold of days is reached, then a doctor’s prescription is required by the Florida and/or Georgia State PT practice act. Every effort will be made to obtain the prescription so there’s no hassle for you. Only Medicare recipients are REQUIRED  to have a doctor’s prescription or referral in order to begin physical therapy at this clinic.

We can also recommend diagnostic testing (X-rays, MRI, EMG testing, etc…)and work closely with your physician to get you the best and most efficient care that you need
