Additionally, Ithamar has lectured at national conferences; been published in peer reviewed journals; mentored PT students in clinic; and is a part-time faculty member at Northeastern University.

Adam Izzicupo - Senior Physical Therapist

Dr Adam Izzicupo, PT, DPT, a Boston area native, attended Northeastern University where he received his BS in Rehabilitation Sciences and Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Upon graduating, Adam immediately began working in an outpatient orthopedic setting, and continues to pursue additional examination and treatment approaches in an effort to give his patients the best possible treatments and outcomes. He also works in acute care physical therapy, giving him a unique perspective in the rehabilitation process, and an understanding of the broad spectrum of physical therapy.

Adam’s interest in orthopedics stems from a long history in athletics, particularly ice hockey, field hockey, and distance running. He was part of the 2008 Northeastern University field hockey National Championship team, and ran his first marathon, the Marine Corps Marathon, in October of 2013.
