Total Physical Therapy and Excel Fitness Center have been partners for over 15 years, serving the Bernardsville community and the neighboring towns of Basking Ridge, Mendham, Far Hills, Bedminster and Harding. The natural coupling of premier concierge one-on-one physical therapy with tailored personal training has had nothing but positive influences on the community.

Having the ability to share client information between physical therapy and personal training has had the amazing capacity to have two disciplines working together for a common goal. To get the client to feel better, move better, be stronger, have better balance and to have less pain.

When training for a 100 mile endurance race, calf and hip pain can bring you to a screeching hault. Just taking the hip and/or calf pain away and being able to walk or run pain free is not enough. Pain cannot come back at mile 26 or 56 or 86. Total Physical Therapy has to make sure that the body can withstand the most challenging pursuits without breaking down. That is why we go above and beyond in treating all complaints that present to our office.

It’s not enough for us to get you to be pain free and get you back to doing the things you love. What we strive for is to make sure that you know exactly what to do to not only prevent your injury from ever coming back, but also to make sure that you’re knowledgeable enough to be able to push the needle further and continue to get yourself ‘better.’

I could not recommend Dimitry more highly. After a year working with my chiropractor, trying to get to a point where I could function somewhat normally with constantly painful discs in my neck, I finally gave in and went to a spinal surgeon. I was in constant pain, and unable to enjoy any of the physical activities that I loved.

Lucky for me, the surgeon sent me to Dimirty first, before trying surgery. Dimitry was able to accomplish in one month what my chiropractor could not do in a year… and I never needed the surgery! I am playing tennis now and living a normal, pain-free life! I had to put in the work and do my exercises as instructed, but it was so worth it! Thank you, Dimitry, for giving me my life back!

Dimitry is by far the best PT I have ever seen. He is incredibly knowledgeable and is a great teacher in that he relays his knowledge to you in an understandable way. He treats the root cause of your injury and incorporates a full body approach for lasting improvement. He doesn’t just apply a band-aid or temporary relief as other PTs I have seen. Dimitry teaches you how your body can work for you and heal with the right exercises and movements.

I believe the knowledge and techniques I have learned from Dimitry will last a lifetime. It does take work and it is an investment but completely worth it. I will not go to any other PT than Dimitry ever again. I cannot thank him enough.

Hip Impingement

Physical Therapists are those that I know all too well. I have a laundry list of injuries stemming from years of abuse playing sports, but mostly from college football. I started having hip pain in 2015 and it began to cripple my daily activities with no hope in sight. I visited various PT’s with little to no success unless I wanted to continue their expensive online program for only $$$$$. Not happening.

Dimitry was my last resort before the knife and I can’t praise him enough. Dimitry is the best PT I’ve ever used simply because he listens. We discussed my concerns and developed a program that would put me back to the life I love inside and outside the gym. Don’t waste more time hoping for a fix and go see the last PT you’ll ever need. Thank you again Dimitry and I wish you all the success in the world. Cheers!

Hi Dimitry,

Thank you for helping me become pain free for the first time in 10 years! I have learned so much from you and all of our sessions. After a tough summer I was able to use what I have learned and get back to feeling good again.

I knew at our last session I was getting a sinus infection. Just didn’t know it was already pretty bad. I was sick all summer since our last session. I went through 4 rounds of antibiotics to get my sinus infection to clear up. I had no energy and stopped doing all my exercise. As soon as the pain came back in September I looked up the google doc from you and started to do my exercises again. I knew they would work! I’m getting back on track on my own thanks to you. Thanks again!

I have been dealing with sciatic nerve pain that was traveling all the way down my left leg. My daughter recommended seeing Dimitry for a consultation. The consultation was very thorough. He let me explain everything that was going on and then devised a plan of action and said, “I can fix you!”

Within 3 days of performing Dimitry’s exercises, I could feel a difference. And now, not quite a week later, there has been a vast improvement in my condition. There is no way I can say enough positive things about Dimitry. This man has a healing gift. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He deserves more than 5 stars. THANK YOU, DIMITRY!!

Our patients always say it best‼️ They’re the ones going through the change. They’re the ones that are learning how to change how they move so they can always move better and really understand what to do when things go south. Life is tricky. You need to be resilient because you’re not always going to move well. Total Physical Therapy is here to give you that resilience. The ability to overcome and to bounce back without ‘having an episode,’ or ‘blowing your back out again.’

We have offices in Bernardsville, Summit and Bridgewater and every session is only with one therapist. We spend up to 90 minutes assessing and diagnosing the root cause of every complaint. We then educate and treat the pateint and make sure that they know how to get better and stay better.

Are you ready for a change? #movehealchange

Far and away the best PT experience I’ve had over twelve years of knee injuries and operations.

First, Dimitry’s title should be upgraded from “Doctor” to “Wizard” of PT. His ability to identify and address the biomechanical root cause of an issue is incredible and at times feels closer to witchcraft than medicine.

Second, his business/treatment model is far more effective, sustainable and ethical than traditional Physical Therapy. Every session is one-on-one and focused on correcting problems specific to each patient’s body, yielding better and faster results.

Rather than simply supervising, Dimitry educates his patients so they are able to essentially treat themselves independently, meaning fewer sessions and lower overall cost.
