Background

Maribeth Crupi, PT

1984 Graduate of Simmons College Program in Physical Therapy, Member of Academy, the Honor Society of Simmons College

Ongoing Clinical Education is a Priority!

Specialized Training Includes:

Integrative Dry Needling (IDN) - this modality uses fine filament needles inserted into muscles to facilitate healing of tissue, release of muscular tension, promote improved circulation to affected tissues, and stimulate the body’s return to homeostasis. Similarities with acupuncture include use of the same type of needle, but IDN focuses on treatment of musculoskeletal disorders (as opposed to also treating visceral disorders) following principles of neuroanatomy (as opposed to a meridian system) to determine needle placement and affect results. These differences make it a distinctly different modality from acupuncture. Acupuncture is certainly a healing system which Maribeth and her staff also have great respect for.

Myofascial release techniques - fascia is the tissue that surrounds virtually every muscle and organ in our body. Understanding its structure and function is integral to developing a complete treatment program

Spinal and extremity mobilization including training in Maitland Approach and High Velocity Low Amplitude Thrust Techniques which offer effective means for restoring motion and decreasing pain. Integral to these techniques is the importance of listening to your patient to gain insight for developing the best treatment approach

Mulligan Concept offers upright positions for spinal mobilization which may be advantageous to the acute patient with limited ability to tolerate lying down for treatment and employ active participation by the patient to restore normal movement with improved joint mobility

Kinesiology Taping - specialized tapes which offer multiple applications from light support for postural corrections, to muscle facilitation or calming, to assisting with reduction of swelling

Graston Technique is a specialized myofascial approach which uses custom shaped steel instruments to assist with the freeing of scar tissue and fascial restrictions

Australian Physiotherapy Pilates Institute (APPI) Mat Work Levels I and II - This premier brand of Pilates training in Europe and the UK is newly available in the United States. It was developed by physical therapists to assure that Pilates instruction incorporates the safest and most effective exercises with research based rationale. Special consideration is given on how to engage the deepest muscles of the core and protect the spine.
