Meet The Team!

 

 
 
 
 

Who gets the best results:

Athletes
From CrossFit, to running, to figure skating, although the sport of choice may vary, the frustration and agony of limited mobility, injury, and pain are the same. As athletes ourselves, we understand and are committed to getting you back to your peak performance as soon and as safely as possible. Using cutting-edge therapy, collaboration with local gyms/boxes, and individualized plans, we work towards stronger more resilient bodies.
 
Youth Athletes
Kids today train hard. There's no doubt that the physical demands put on youth athletes today are rigorous. As youth athletes go through their athletic development, they need a coach and medical practitioner who understands what they are going through. They need someone who understands how to reduce the risk of injury and start building resilience and strength so they can perform at their best and recover like a professional athlete.
 
Active Lifestyle
You may not necessarily identify with being an athlete per say, but you are active! At least you were before limited mobility or injury slowed you down. Whether it’s taking the dogs for their evening walk, keeping up with kiddos, going to the gym, or getting in a round of golf on the weekends, you deserve to do them pain-free. You were made to move, and we are here to help you get back to that active lifestyle you love.

Dr. Arlianne Scott Founder, Doctor of Physical Therapy

Dr. Arlianne Scott is a physical therapist, educator, and the founder of Artistry in Motion Physical Therapy and Wellness. She specializes in helping active adults of all levels get back to the sports and activities they love, without nagging injuries-- whether it's working out,  lifting their kiddo, or hiking the Sandias. As a gym-goer, former collegiate dancer, and avid figure skater, she understands first-hand the bliss movement brings to life, and strives to transform the lives of others through the fulfillment of movement. 

We are told too often by medical practitioners of our limitations and the things we can’t do. Dr. Arlianne is on a mission to change that. She believes that everyone should be able to perform basic human maintenance on themselves, and that taking an active role in your rehabilitation and performance enhancement is key to success.
 
She peels away layers of an injury or nagging issue, finding the root cause of the problem. This allows her to not only help guide you through resolving your pain, but improving your movement quality and resolving dysfunction, so that you can have an understanding of how to take care of yourself and remain pain-free long-term.

 She finds great joy: weight lifting, dancing, figure skating, spending time with her husband, and savoring dark chocolate. She understands first-hand the bliss movement brings to life, and strives to transform the lives of others through the fulfillment of movement.

​The world of passive treatments, pills, arbitrary surgeries, and useless cortisone shots is over. Get ready to move!

The Artistry in Motion Difference

Founded by a physical therapist with knowledge and experience in weightlifting, strength and conditioning, and performing arts; we go beyond just the quick fix, taking the time to perform a thorough evaluation and movement assessment to determine the underlying dysfunctions that lead to injury-- not just what structure is causing you pain.

This allows us to give you the tools to enhance your bodies performance and correct the issue so it never returns.

At Artistry in Motion, you will always spend 100% of your time with your Doctor of Physical Therapy. Our standard is a 1:1 ratio of patients to doctors, with highly individualized patient care, unlike the traditional insurance based model, where it is typically a 3:1 (or more!) ratio.

Due to the nature of the healthcare industry, which has begun to reimburse less and less, we are out of network with all insurance companies. This model allows our practitioners to focus on quality patient care and YOUR needs and goals without being dictated by insurance rules and regulations. This also allows for transparency of pricing. You will never receive a bill from us weeks or months after a treatment session.

Here at Artistry in Motion, we believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This means that we would much rather focus on pre-screening, prevention, and diagnosis of impairments as well as maintenance of general health and wellness, rather than be reactive to injury.

Our goal is to make physical therapy accessible and approachable to the community by becoming the leading providers of choice by bridging the gap between injury prevention, movement optimization, rehabilitative and wellness services, and athletics.

Whether you are an athlete progressing towards peak performance, or simply want to eliminate a nagging pain so that you can enjoy an active lifestyle once again, Artistry in Motion is here to help you return to pain-free movement, optimize your body’s movement and performance, and dominate your goals!

Humans are designed to be IN MOTION, and move well -- as a team, we can make that happen.

Are you ready to get back to the life you love?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Artistry in Motion Mission and Vision

“IF YOU HAVE A BODY, YOU’RE AN ATHLETE.”  - Bill Bowerman
 
Artistry in Motion was founded on the belief that time is the most valuable resource that we have. You’ll never get the time spent dealing with pain, missing out on activities back. You won’t get the countless hours needlessly spent at a healthcare practitioner’s office back either. Healthcare quality is at an all time low. You deserve more than an overloaded doctor with 3+ other patients in an hour. 


Our MISSION is to empower our community with the tools and knowledge they need to live a high performance, pain free life. If you like to do CrossFit, we'll help you stay healthy while you train. If you love golf, we'll get you back on the course, keep you there, AND help you improve your performance. If you're a runner and have aspirations of doing your first half marathon, we'll help you accomplish that goal!


Our VISION is to bridge the gap between rehab and athletics, to be a resource for our community, as well as coaches, athletes, and trainers around the globe
 

The Artistry in Motion Promise
At Artistry in Motion, we promise:

 
To value your time
You'll be seen on time, every time.

To be 100% transparent
​You will never get a surprise bill from us 3 months later, as is very common with other physical therapy practices.

To provide one-on-one care for the full visit, every visit.
You will be taken through your unique, individualized plan of care directly by your doctor, not a rehab tech in college or front desk personnel.

To educate you
Our experts give you the knowledge to take an active role in your health and life.
 
 
 
 
 

What to expect at your first appointment

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Fantastic, you’re ready to schedule an appointment with us! We are already looking forward to meeting you and helping you get back to life! Here at Artistry in Motion, we are committed to 100% transparency and clear communication, so here is what you can expect from your first consultation with us.

We highly recommend coming in (or changing into upon your arrival) activewear or something you are comfortable stretching and moving around in because, well, you will be moving. We also may need to expose the body part for which you are coming. Think shorts for easy access to the knee and movement of the hip. Close-toed shoes are ideal, however, be prepared to take them off if needed.

You will be greeted by your Doctor of Physical Therapy. You can expect personalized one-on-one care from you doctor, for the entire duration of your appointment, every appointment. At no point will you be left to pedal aimlessly on a stationary bike or to your own devices with stretchy bands, wondering if you’re doing something correctly, or if your therapist is going to come back.

We like to start these consultations with some good, old fashioned conversation – we want to get to know you, what motivates you, your performance/medical history, what impact this injury has had on your life. We will discuss all of your questions or concerns, and, most importantly, your goals.

From there, we will segue into your evaluation in which your doctor will gently move through diagnostics – keeping open dialogue the entire time so you understand what’s happening and why. Your appointment will end with a unique, individualized plan of care for getting you back to peak performance.

If you decide to continue working with us, you will understand exactly what that will entail regarding timeline and cost. Again, we value transparency and communication. Especially when it comes to your care. If you have any questions before your appointment, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Cash-based physical therapy means that we are out of network with all insurance companies and do not directly bill through insurance (thought you may be eligible for reimbursement directly from your insurance company). Our patients pay us directly each visit for their 1-on-1, personalized physical therapy session. This allows us to focus all of our attention on the patient and perform treatments to focus on patient goals without being dictated by insurance rules and regulations.

 

You can certainly use your out of network insurance benefits. You can also use your health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA). While we do collect our fees directly from our clients, we provide an itemized invoice to submit to his or her insurance company. By submitting your receipt, you may be able to recover a percentage of the cost you pay upfront (typically 60-80%) from your insurance company, depending on your "out of network" coverage.

 

While cash is certainly an acceptable form of payment, patients are also able to pay with major credit and debit cards as well as FSA and HSA accounts.

 

Insurance companies in the United States are continually cutting reimbursement rates for rehabilitation services and dictating how clinicians treat patients. With this decline in reimbursement, many clinics are forced to treat multiple patients in the hour (this means that therapists are seeing 4+ patients at the same time) and lower patient care standards in order to make ends meet. These clinics rotate patients in and use assistants and techs to complete treatments. Patients do not receive the individualized care they need, and are encouraged to go through exercises with little to no supervision. With a cash based practice, we are able to decide how we want to treat patients as we are not regulated by the insurance companies. This allows us to provide the highest quality care for our patients, while keeping them 1- on -1 with their doctor of physical therapy for the entire hour, every visit. This increase in quality results in our patients getting better, faster than traditional insurance based physical therapy. We typically see our patients only one time per week, saving you valuable time; meaning you aren’t leaving work early, commuting to and from the clinic, and spending an hour here 3 times each week.

 
Yes, we do. Please contact our staff HERE, or call (505)-926-1751 to schedule your appointment.
