At AMP, we know what it’s like to feel physically stuck, let down, and out of hope due to an injury or lingering pain. We also understand the emotional toll it can take when that pain stops you from doing the activities that you love.
If you’ve tried physical therapy or other forms of treatment before and were disappointed or underwhelmed by your results, we’d like to affirm that you’re not alone. Many of our clients have told us they felt the same way before coming to see us.
Recognizing that the healthcare system is not always set up with patients’ best interests in mind, we created AMP with the intention of providing quality, patient-centered care with a focus on an exceptional experience that is catered to you and your specific needs.
AMP stands for Always Make Progress. It is our mission to make sure that you always make progress toward your goals.
About Our Team!
Dr. Shaun Astorga is a board-certified physical therapist who has overcome his own chronic pain and injury from a brain and neck injury after being written off by other medical professionals. His first hand experience managing his own chronic pain gives him a unique sense of empathy and compassion to his patients, which is exemplified through the quality of treatment he provides.
Like many of AMP's clients, Shaun became frustrated by all of the doctors and physical therapists who told him all of the things he "should not be able to do", instead of providing actual solutions to make his goals become a reality. Shaun learned quickly that most solutions offered to him were quick fixes that would not get to the root cause of his pain.
This experience is what caused Shaun to seek guidance on the complexities of the human body from well established practitioners around the nation, and through overcoming his own chronic pain, he implements his learnings into a comprehensive model of care that focuses on each patient as the unique human that they are.
By focusing on the uniqueness of each individual, Shaun and the team at AMP are able to help many dealing with long term pain even if they feel they've tried everything or have seen other PTs before.
Shaun has been lucky to work with athletes of the highest level, with extensive experience with athletes in the National Football League, World Figure Skating Championships, Olympic Figure Skating, Olympic Weight Lifting, Reebok Crossfit Games, Major League Soccer, UFC and Cage Fury Fighting Championships.
Dr. Monica Moore is a physical therapist at AMP Performance Rehab. Dr. Monica’s journey into the world of health and movement began at a very early age through dance. She became passionate in the art form and continued her studies at Rutgers University and obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from Mason Gross School of the Arts.
After sustaining multiple injuries, she found herself frustrated with the lack of answers from providers who failed to look at the specifics of her body and movement patterns while understanding her physical needs as a dancer. When confronted with pain or injury, she was told to stop, rest, and wait until the pain went away before returning to her active lifestyle without any other guidance.
Her experience as an artist and athlete motivated her to become a practitioner that can help her clients understand their bodies better and help them return to what they love doing safely. Dr. Monica strives to make every session an educational experience in which clients can understand their body and discomforts and implement a game plan that is appropriate for the patient's needs. Every patient is a unique being and every game plan should reflect that.
Dr. Monica is passionate for rehabilitation all across the spectrum of life. Dr. Monica has been lucky to work with athletes of the highest level, with extensive experience with athletes in the National Football League, World Figure Skating Championships, Olympic Figure Skating, Olympic Weight Lifting, Reebok Crossfit Games, Major League Soccer, UFC and Cage Fury Fighting Championships and Broadway Performing Artists.
Monica holds a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Rutgers University (Formerly UMDNJ) and is an adjunct professor at Montclair State University.
Dr. Danielle Clarke is a double board certified physical therapist in Sports and Orthopedics at AMP Performance Rehab. Dr. Danielle was a Division 1 college gymnast that spent most of her early years as a frustrated patient with various injuries going from one provider to the next without results or explanations. As a high level athlete she never felt her rehab plan got her back to the demands of her sport and therefore was constantly reinjured.
This experience compelled her to understand the human body, movement, and pain in order to help her clients avoid those same frustrations. Danielle believes in finding the root cause of the problem and creating a comprehensive plan to produce long term results and reduce the risk for future injuries. Each person’s story, pain, and health journey is unique and Danielle believes in working with each individual to create a plan that will be simple and sustainable. It is her mission to empower as many as possible to be able to take control of their own pain and take the steps necessary to move forward with their lives.
Over the course of 10 years, Danielle has had the opportunity to work with a variety of athletes both recreational and professional. Danielle was fortunate to be able to work with numerous college athletes, NFL and NHL players, Olympic figure skaters, UFC and Cage Fury Fighting Championship fighters, Crossfit athletes, police officers, Ironman triathletes, and various endurance athletes. Danielle also works with 29029 Everesting athletes.
Danielle holds a B.A. from the University of Rhode Island and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Seton Hall University.
