  • Dr. Amanda DeRosa, DPT

    Amanda comes to Movement Rx after becoming a fan of our approach several years ago. She is an Arizona native who recently moved to beautiful 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. A killer athlete, 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 become certified in the following: ASTYM (Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization), CKTP (Certified Kinesiotape Practitioner), CSCS (Certified Strength & Conditioning Coach), FMS (Functional Movement Screen), SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment).

    When not at work, Amanda enjoys spending time with her family and participating in CrossFit. She has used CrossFit as her exercise of choice since 2009, and has qualified for the 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 your needs at that point in your recovery or performance plan. She loves getting to know her patients and becomes deeply invested in their progress goals.

    Amanda is dedicated to helping patients of Movement Rx reach their full potential, by eliminating pain and moving better!

  • Dr. Megan Graff, DPT

    Dr. Megan Graff completed her doctorate in physical therapy at Texas Woman's University in Houston. In addition to her DPT, Megan is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, USA Track & Field Level 1 Coach and is a board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) for her advanced clinical knowledge, experience, and skills in working with patients with orthopedic conditions. Additionally, she completed her fellowship training (FAAOMPT) with the Institute for Athlete Regeneration in advanced sports & orthopedic manual therapy. Less than 1% of all physical therapists in the US have both the OCS and FAAOMPT designations - it's quite a feat and speaks to Megan's skill in manual physical therapy.

    Megan grew up in Texas, enjoying a variety of sports including soccer, karate, swimming, horseback riding, and ran track in high school. She began running marathons in her second year of college, and has continued competing ever since. As a therapist, strength specialist and track coach, she has a passion for working with runners looking to optimize their performance or overcome injury. Megan incorporates weightlifting, Crossfit, and yoga into her training, and enjoys anything active and outdoors including hiking, camping, surfing, SUP, and soccer.

    As a part of the team at Movement Rx, Megan is dedicated to incorporating a combination of exercise, education, and manual therapy to empower her patients to achieve their goals and maximize their health.
