Do you have issues with being sore or stiff?  Well a lot of us golfers do.  To combat that soreness and stiffness and to accelerate the healing process our Executive Director, Steve Jurick PGA has been visiting USCryotherapy for the past year and he believes in it so much that he has arranged a special introductory price for all Miami Valley Golf Members.  Skeptical?, sure it's only natural so here is a link to more research on the subject.
