What We Treat


“The Joy of Therapy is founded with a healing and joyful spirit offering physical therapy to kids, teens and adults with scoliosis, posture issues, muscle and joint pain using movement and breath to restore strength and decrease pain.”

This is a 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.

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
