Amanda DeRosa is a Flagstaff native who recently moved back home, from San Diego, with her husband and two adorable children. Her love for physical therapy started in high school after physical therapy helped her overcome multiple soccer injuries, including her own physical therapy at DeRosa Physical Therapy. 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 other certifications: ASTYM (Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization), CKTP (Certified Kinesiotape Practitioner), CSCS (Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist), FMS (Functional Movement Screen), SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment).
When not at work, Amanda enjoys spending time with her family, enjoying the outside 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, physically and mentally. Not just baseline, but optimal. She does this by customizing each session to each person’s individual needs at that point in their recovery or performance plan. She loves getting to know her patients and becomes deeply invested in their progress goals. With Amanda’s 12 years of experience in the orthopaedic setting, working with athletes and expertise in the ASTYM procedure, her patients are able to fully recover with minimal residual scar tissue and regain full mobility and strength.
Amanda is dedicated to helping patients reach their full potential, by eliminating pain and moving better!
