About DPT Amanda DeRosa
Dr. Amanda DeRosa
Dr. Amanda DeRosa is an Arizona native, who recently moved to San Diego with her husband and two young children. Her love for physical therapy started in high school after physical therapy helped her overcome multiple soccer injuries. Amanda went on to play Division I soccer at Northern Arizona University, where she later graduated with her doctorate in physical therapy in 2007. She has since achieved the following additional certifications: ASTYM (Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization), CKTP (Certified Kinesiotape Practitioner), CSCS (Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist), FMS (Functional Movement Screen), and SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment).
When not at work, Amanda enjoys spending time with her family, appreciating the beautiful San Diego weather, and participating in CrossFit. She has been using CrossFit as her exercise of choice since 2009 and has qualified for CrossFit Regionals 5 separate times.
For Amanda, the most rewarding part of her job is being able to help people return to their full optimal function, both physically and mentally. She customizes each session to the patient's individual needs at the appropriate point in the recovery or performance plan. She loves getting to know her patients and becomes deeply invested in their progress goals. With Amanda’s 10 years of experience in the orthopaedic setting and expertise in the ASTYM procedure, post-surgical patients are able to fully recover with minimal residual scar tissue and regain full mobility.
Amanda is dedicated to helping patients reach their full potential by eliminating pain and helping them move better!
