What We Treat

MISSION STATEMENT

“The Joy of Therapy is founded with a healing and joyful spirit. We offer highly skilled, hands-on physical therapy to the community so that our clients can return to living their best quality of life. We strive to achieve and maintain optimal health of our clients by using movement to restore strength and decrease pain.”


We are a private, direct access clinic. So what does that mean to you? Basically, you can come in for an evaluation and treatment for up to 30 days without a doctor’s prescription prior to scheduling your appointment. Once 30 days of treatment is reached, then a doctor’s prescription is required by the Florida State PT practice act. We will make every effort to obtain the prescription so there’s no hassle for you. We can also recommend diagnostic testing (X-rays, MRI, EMG testing, etc…) if needed and will help you find the best way to get those to save you time and energy. We will work closely with your physician to get you the best and most efficient care that you need.
